Do you have a passion for writing? Curious about playwriting or theatre? Join us for this 8-week workshop for youth, grades 8-12, led by actress and playwright Tanya Morgan. Together, we’ll explore different aspects of playwriting: world-building, character development, dialogue, and plot. Inspiring writing prompts and fun improv exercises will spark your imagination. This workshop is perfect for youth who want to express themselves, be creative, and meet others in an encouraging and welcoming environment. Everyone is welcome. No theatre or writing experience is required. At the end of the 8 weeks, the teens will have the option to have professional actors read their work. Registration is required for this free program. Please register by clicking the RSVP link. About the Instructor: Tanya Morgan is a director, performer, writer, teaching artist, and host.
