Young Playwrights’ Workshop
The Young Playwrights’ Workshop was YPT’s award-winning student theater ensemble. Members worked together to create, develop, rehearse and perform an original play. A professional teaching artist would help the ensemble develop a foundation of theater skills that form the basis for creating new work. Students learned a diverse set of skills: improvisation, stage combat, clowning, solo performance and playwriting. Each year, the program culminates in a theatrical experience open to the public.
