Theatre-for-Teens should be awesome.
It should be better because it’s performed by teens. It should be artistically vibrant.
It should be entertaining while being about something. It should never be stupid or condescending. It should elevate. It should be bold.
It should be art!
- Most of my theatre-for-teens work is initially written for and with a group of young people.
- We use devising techniques, kinesthetic dramaturgy, and “cold performances” to create material that I use as a starting point when writing the script.
- Most of these are initially produced with that group, which allows us to troubleshoot and helps set a course for future revisions.
- I then adapt the scripts for others to use.
And for Mature High School Students and Young Adults
