Promising Playwright, September 2007 Nicole Jost
 
Nicole graduated in June from University of California with a BA in "Theater and Cultural Politics."  She is proud to report that this year, "I directed an original, ensemble-created piece called 'Play.' The cast was made up of 8 amazing women. We did everything from haiku to clowning to Shakespeare. It was the coolest show I've worked on to date."
She is teaching YPT's summer dramatics class at Bell Multicultural High School. She says, "Working with YPT students never ceases to amaze me."
 
Jane StirlingJane Stirling
Promising Playwright, January 2008
 
Jane has a busy summer including, "Playing with my friends and cousins, taking trips, a bit of summer camp, and going to dance camp for the first time ever." 
 
She counts her experience having her play produced for the Express Tour as her proudest accomplishment for the past year. "It made me feel like I am better at writing than I thought I was," she says. "It made me feel good about trying new things because I had never felt good about trying new things.  For example, swim team.  This year I tried it, and made it to the A Team."
