Playwright Alex Genty-Waksberg will lead a two-part workshop for teens interested in writing short plays. The program will culminate in a student reading of their plays for family and friends. Sessions will be held Sunday, April 28, noon – 5 pm, and Saturday, May 4, noon – 5 pm with the showcase at 7 pm. Space is limited to eight students.

During the first session, the group will read over some short one-act plays, go over story structure, and brainstorm ideas for the students’ own plays. By the end of the first workshop, students should have a working idea of their own project, if not a first draft. Over the course of the week, students will be able to email Alex with any questions or revisions to their drafts for feedback.

For the second workshop, students should come prepared with a draft of their short one-act play. Plays will be read aloud for group feedback and Alex will work one-on-one with each student to help them complete their one-acts. At 7 pm, friends and family will be invited to watch staged readings of each students’ plays. Light refreshments will be served.

Cost for the two-part workshop is $80.
