Young Theaterworks

YOUNG THEATERWORKS
residencies consist of 20 sessions for up to 20 youth in which our
experienced Teaching Artists work with students to create an original
script.Sessions are held during school hours twice weekly for
approximately 90 minutes. Each residency culminates with at least one
staged reading open to the public and performed in a professional
setting by professional actors alongside student participants.

YOUNG THEATERWORKS consists of:

• Young Theaterworks Intensive ~
Students create an original script that explores their personal
identity, family history and various issues that directly affect their
lives.

• Crosstown Voices ~ Utilizing our
Intensive curriculum, students from two different schools in two
distinct neighborhoods are given the opportunity to challenge existing
perspectives of themselves and their crosstown peers, and to transcend
the urban divide caused by gang turf wars, language differences or
culture barriers by coming together to share and discuss their original
work.

• Through the Ages ~ A unique cross-generational residency, Through the Ages
builds literacy and helps students and seniors transcend generational
and cultural divides. Based on interviews with a select group of
seniors, students create new theaterworks. Together they discover
commonalities as students develop a stewardship of the seniors' stories
through their creative process.

• About…Productions Masterclass/Workshop gives students a hands-on experience exploring the themes and techniques used to create About…Productions’s original theaterworks.
