Firebird NEST Playwriting Workshop & Festival

Firebird Nest Playwriting Workshop & Festival (ages 12-14)

Firebird Nest is a playwriting workshop for young theater enthusiasts. Over the course of a semester, workshop participants will work on individual short plays, which will later be presented as staged readings in a performance festival starring the workshop participants. Participants will share their work weekly, receiving constructive feedback from both their peers and instructor. In the process, not only will they develop and revise their original work and see it performed, but they will also learn to offer and receive constructive criticism in a supportive and friendly environment. Through the workshop and festival process, participants will have the opportunity to write original dramatic scripts, do table-reads of peer work, participate in rehearsals of their plays, and perform in the final festival readings of their fellow writers’ work.
