Building the Next Generation of Great American Playwrights
Curious New Voices, Curious’ award-winning youth education program, is accepting applications from young playwrights for its Summer Playwriting Intensive. Now in its eighth year, this program places playwrights ages 15 to 21 work alongside professional playwrights, actors and directors to create short plays; culminating in a professional 3-day festival of readings on the Curious stage.
Instructors Dee Covington, Josh Hartwell and Meridith Friedman will be joined by guest artists Steven Dietz and Laura Eason. Dietz is one of the top ten most produced playwrights in America. One of Eason’s plays was just produced at Steppenwolf.
The Curious New Voices Summer Playwriting Intensive runs July 6 - 31, 2011; M-F, 9:30-3:30pm at Curious Theatre Company, 1080 Acoma in Denver. Performances are July 29, 30 and 31 at 7pm. Tuition is $500. (Scholarships are available).
