Teen Playwriting Workshop

The Coterie Theatre offers a special playwriting workshop for teens!

Students grades 7-12 are encouraged to explore their most creative story ideas and work toward developing their own play through the Reaching The Write Minds playwriting workshop.  

During the 5 hour workshop, teen playwrights will learn to create settings, devise scenarios, build characters, and develop fully written scenes.  Upon completion of the seminar, participants will have devised a beginning scenario for a complete play and will begin scene work.  Some participants may be contacted to develop their plays in The Coterie's Young Playwrights' Roundtable, a free teen playwriting group offered by invitation-only.

The session is facilitated by local theatre professionals and teaching artists, R.H. Wilhoit and Meredith Wolfe.
