Are you ready to embark on a creative journey? This course gives students the foundation to write monologues, short scenes, and even entire plays. We will explore different ways to jumpstart writing with photos, random props, and improvisation activities. You will learn how to plot out a story, create interesting characters, and add dialogue to bring the play to life. There will be opportunities to write individually, with partners, and as an entire class. Students can choose to share work through reader’s theater and simple staging. This class is ideal for anyone who enjoys writing, theater, and being creative!
