Introduction To Playwriting

  • Time of Day

    Afternoon Class (1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. CST)

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 create interesting stories using character-driven dialogue. Students will discover how to introduce conflict, make action progress, and transport the audience to a different time or place.  There will be opportunities to write individually, with partners, and as an entire class. Students can choose to share work through reader’s theater, recordings, and simple staging. This class is ideal for anyone who enjoys writing, theater, and being creative!
