Teen Writer's Intensive at Fairfield Museum

{Program Logo}

A five-day playwriting workshop led by accomplished theatre professionals.

Unquowa Repertory Theatre is offering a five-day summer writing workshop which will assist teens in developing professional script-writing skills through the framework of a ten-minute play. A duo of experienced theatre professionals will model the process by creating their own new works while concurrently guiding students through engaging step-by-step instruction.

Applications are now open for the week-long intensive which is designed to teach students how to generate ideas, develop characters, structure a story, work with images and themes, and write dialogue, as well as how to give and take constructive feedback. Students will be introduced to industry-standard script-writing software and have the unique opportunity to learn about the business first-hand from those who’ve actually done it.

By the end of the week, each student will have developed a polished ten-minute play. In addition, other industry professionals will be in attendance for a special final-session lunch chat with students, providing personal insight and unique first-hand experiences from the world of theatre. Finally, students’ work will be presented as a reading by professional actors for an audience of their peers, family, and friends to take place the evening of the last day.

Applications will be accepted through July 3, 2017. You can find it on Unquowa’s website here: The cost of the program is $300 for the full week’s instruction and the final play readings on the evening of July 21. Students who do not have their own electronic devices may have one provided for their use. There also are three full scholarships available; please indicate your desire to be considered for one of these on your online application!

Parents will acknowledge application on the website and more forms will be filled out by them afterward, including for payment (remember, scholarships are available!)
