In this two-week intensive, student-playwrights will give Shakespeare a run for his money working closely with accomplished playwright (and Walden Theatre Conservatory alum) Diana Grisanti.
We’ll write one-minute plays, ten-minute plays, and maybe even get started on something longer. We’ll ask the questions: How do you capture the audience’s attention? How do you sustain it? How do you craft a narrative that’s compelling? Dynamic? ALIVE?
The class will culminate in a staged reading with professional actors. In other words, students will get to experience their dramatic writing as it’s meant to be experienced: Out loud!
This program is a great prep for those planning to enroll in CTC's fall Playwriting class and submit work for CTC's Young Playwrights Festival and/or the New Voices Festival at Actors Theatre.
Workshop will be July 29th - August 9th, 10am-noon, Mondays through Fridays for Ages 13-18. Information and enrollment can be found here.
Franklin, Breezy, JJ... Kicked out for being gay, for being pretty, for being nuts. Their journey is crazy, funny, and frightening, beginning in a conservative city in Oregon—where Grandma’s house is a meth house, where bed’s an underpass, and the safest place you can wander is the mall.
When tragedy hits, they travel to another America. An idyllic liberal town, right smack in the forest. But is there shelter here? Or is home each other? And, when push comes to shove, as it always does…is each other enough? Homefree is a dark urban fairy tale about three cast-out teens and the flip side of the American dream.
Featuring performances from Aaron Roitman, Peighton Radlein, Noah Bunch, Mackenzie Kasbaum, Matt Jaggers, Heather Lundberg Green, Scott Davis, and Tony Smith.
Commonwealth Theatre Center is very happy to partner with Ban Conversion Therapy Kentucky and @The Sweet Evening Breeze LGBTQ Youth Shelter.
