Savannah Miller (she/hers) will be workshopping her original play, The House, with YPT.
Savannah is a Theater major and English and Russian double minor at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. While her start was in acting, Savannah is also interested in playwriting and dramaturgy. She has had three original plays produced through the Dartmouth College Department of Theater: The House (Eleanor Frost Playwriting Contest Winner, 2018), Trivia Champion (2019), and Little Circles (Eleanor Frost Playwriting Contest Winner, 2020). Savannah also has experience in stage management, working as an assistant stage manager on the Dartmouth College Theater Department’s Cabaret (2017) and as stage manager for Dartmouth Idol with the Hopkins Center for the Arts this past winter. As a theatre artist, Savannah has worked with different theatre organizations, including the New York Theatre Workshop, the Smithsonian’s Discovery Theater, the Stratford Festival, and the Virginia Theatre Association. She also writes for the student newspaper on campus, is a tour guide and undergraduate advisor, and is an active member of Alpha Xi Delta Sorority. After Dartmouth, Savannah plans to attend graduate school for playwriting and pursue a career as a writer and arts educator.
Fun Fact: Savannah considers herself a connoisseur of bad puns and “dad jokes.”
In Savannah's words: "The House was first presented in a staged reading as an Eleanor Frost Playwriting Contest Winner at Dartmouth College in 2018. Two brothers must come to terms with their family history during the sale of their childhood home, invoking a lesson in where we come from and how it can define us."
