Free After-School Program for Grades 8-12!
Young Playwrights’ Theater (YPT) seeks young people to participate in our award-winning Young Playwrights’ Workshop! YPT is an arts education nonprofit based in Columbia Heights, and we have been serving students throughout the DC area for over 20 years.
The Young Playwrights’ Workshop is YPT’s award-winning student theater ensemble for students in grades 8-12. The group meets every Wednesday afternoon from 4:15 – 5:45 pm (except for holidays). Over the course of the school year, students will:
– Learn about theater and creative writing
– Write and perform their own original play, which will be presented as a part of the 2016 Source Festival on June 13
– Make friends from other schools and neighborhoods
– Earn community service and/or internship hours
– Earn a stipend of up to $200
The Workshop’s first meeting will be on Wednesday, October 7. All meetings take place in YPT’s office at the Josephine Butler Parks Center (2437 15th Street NW, Third Floor, Washington, DC 20009).
