Launching its 11th year in the fall of 2017, LEAP (Learning Early About Playwriting) is a dynamic, interactive program for young playwrights aged 16 to 25. Over 150 students have been mentored through the creation of original dramatic works since the program’s inception in 2006.
Participants learn the basic principles of playwriting, share their work with classmates, and provide feedback for one another in a safe and supportive environment. Students also receive feedback from theatre professionals and have their plays workshopped and presented to the public in staged readings.The program culminates in the LEAP Festival in which professional actors perform the plays in a staged reading format
LEAP is a full-scholarship program, and is 100% funded by donors and sponsors. There is no cost to the student whatsoever.
