EARLY STAGES – A New Play Development Experience Exclusively for Schools
Featuring new plays by four playwrights, YPT will give students an inside look at the early stages of play development. Classrooms will receive exclusive access to live-streamed readings of new works in progress. This is an interactive experience, with playwrights curious about your students’ perceptions and opinions on specific elements of the play. Following the reading, teachers will be supplied with questions for their students and will be asked to submit their feedback to YPT afterwards. Space is limited. If interested in having your class participate virtually, please contact Molly Gardner, Education Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org
This program is offered at no cost.
