TEEN PLAYWRITING WORKSHOP
To give a voice to emerging young writers, The Coterie Theatre offers an in-person teen playwriting seminar in the 2022 KC Fringe Festival, based on Coterie Artistic Director Jeff Church's acclaimed program that he originated at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
Students will learn to create settings, devise scenarios, and build characters. Upon completion of this seminar with Coterie professional playwright/facilitator Hollis Wilhoit, young playwrights will have devised a beginning scenario for a complete play and will have several fully written scenes.
Following this seminar, some promising participants may be selected to develop their plays in The Coterie's Young Playwrights' Roundtable.
The in person workshop will take place with The Coterie at Crown Center. The 5.5-hour session will take place Saturday, July 23, 2022 from 10am-3:30pm. Participants must commit to the entire workshop time. This workshop is available only to those entering grades 7-12.
