Young Playwrights' Theater inspires young people to realize the power of their own voices.

Young Playwrights' Guild

Young Playwrights' Guild

The Young Playwrights' Guild (formerly the Student Advisory Council) was formed to foster talented young playwrights and enable them with the skills to write a full-length play over the course of a school year. The Guild will also serve as an advisory council to the YPT board. Guild members will confer with professional artists, experience local art and write about what resonates with them.

Comprised of 6-12 current and alumni participants of YPT's Young Playwrights' Workshop and New Play Festival, the Guild meets every other Tuesday from September to May.  

Guild member candidates are recommended by YPT staff and teaching artists, based on their successful participation in a YPT program and their strong interest and engagement with YPT’s mission.
