Digital LEAP - Free program for online playwriting instruction classes!!

Digital LEAP extends our dedication to playwriting instruction across the province. This FREE program connects through schools to smaller communities in British Columbia and engages directly with youth ages 16 to 19 and offers online instruction via the internet and streaming technology.

Ten online classes are offered to participating students. Each student is guided through the creation of a short original play, which is then workshopped by a cast of professional actors. The program culminates in a showcase of play readings that take place in front of a live audience that will be live-streamed back to the students community. If you know of young aspiring playwright or someone who is keen about writing we invite them to apply.

Application deadline is January 31, 2018

Classes run February 12 – April 26, 2018

Workshops run May 19 - 20, 2018

Showcase takes place on May 28, 2018
