Free Playwrighting Program for NYC Teens!

Dear NYC teachers,

Urban Arts Partnership and The New Group present the 2010-2011 Life Stories Playwriting Collective, a free-of-charge playwriting program for NYC High School students.  This exciting program meets on Saturdays* and provides selected students with the opportunity to create and develop their own plays under the guidance of an experienced instructor and master-classes led by award-winning and internationally renowned playwrights.  This one-of-a-kind experience will culminate with the production of all original plays at a 42nd Street theater, which Urban Arts Partnership will then incorporate as Master Works in our 2011-2012 Theatre Arts Curriculum.

There are only 10 openings for next year’s “Life Stories Playwriting Collective”, and we are anticipating a very competitive selection process.  If you’re a teacher and work with high school students please nominate up to 2 young artists who you think might benefit from this unique program.  The nominated candidates should read the attached flyer and apply for an opening by no later than July 16, 2010.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with question about this exciting opportunity!

All best,
Alex Sarian

P.S. *MTA MetroCards, Breakfast & snacks are provided for FREE.
