Writing plays for youth

A new workshop for children/youth ages 8-12! (Age flexible, children must be able to write at least somewhat independently). Children do NOT have to be local to MN!

In this workshop, children and youth who identify as transgender/nonbinary/agender/gnc or questioning will work with adult transgender folks to learn how to write short plays! Through fun Saturday morning sessions and with the help of adult mentors, each participant will write their own short play.

These plays will then be performed by professional adult actors in a public reading of work (only the first names of children as playwrights will be used).

Workshops will take place on Saturday mornings from 11-12pm Central on October 3, 10, 17, and 24 on Zoom. There will be one additional call with each child and their adult actors for a rehearsal (date and time TBD)

Uprising seeks to make this workshop accessible to all folks. The cost is $150 but we also have sliding scale of $100 and $75. If all of those are out of reach for your family, please send us an email connect@uprisingtheatreco.com as we do have some scholarships available.
