  • Description - Young Playwrights' Theater

    The goal of the Young Playwrights' Theater (YPT), is to spark young people's creativity and nurture the artistic voice of a new generation through theater and the art of playwriting. A nationally recognized educational theater, YPT connects organizations, schools, and professional artists to create plays for a new America. Programs include the In-School Playwriting Program, a three-tiered program of instruction in playwriting for middle and high school students; and the After-School Playwriting Program, designed for children in grades four-six to improve literacy and encourage community engagement. The New Play Festival is an annual, professionally produced performance of plays written by youth in the other programs.
