YOUNG PLAYWRIGHTS FESTIVAL

Online Showcase of 2020 Young Playwrights Festival

Young Playwrights Festival

2020 Showcase

Although we weren’t able to have students in the theatre this summer, we embraced online learning and produced seven shows as apart of our Young Playwrights festival. These plays were a product of our Young Playwrights Workshop, written by students ages 9 – 18, and performed by the Fall youth acting classes. 

Gloucester Stage Youth Workshops are professional training programs designed to provide young people with an outlet to nurture their creative potential through developing self-confidence, communication and teamwork skills to use in their daily life as well as introducing them to the skills necessary for professional theater. The Young Playwrights Workshop cultivates a passion for storytelling and gives students the opportunity to write and refine scripts through a multi-draft process.
