Playwriting Class

Playwriting is an exciting and engaging way to learn about performing arts and scriptwriting. To be successful, you need to know where ideas for plays come from, the lingo writers speak, how to create fully dimensional characters, how to write dialogue, where to start your play, how to develop your storyline and reach the story’s climax, and how to bring your play to a satisfying conclusion.

If you want to explore script writing and learn script writing this class is for you. The skills you learn in this class will help you write better stories, better dialogue and be useful in many other writing areas. This class is not just for writers, anyone with an interest in any aspect of performing will benefit from learning about the aspects of writing and storytelling techniques that will be presented. An experienced team of writers, directors, actors and designers, from Prescott Center for the Arts, will
teach this class. The team has years of experience working with elementary and secondary students. The goal of the class will be to guide students through the process of writing, revising and producing their work. Students will be encouraged to submit their plays for Prescott Center for the Arts Young Playwrights Festival. They will also learn about additional opportunities to submit their work for scholarships or other playwriting competitions. In the spring, a special festival production opportunity will be given to all writers who wish to take their play to the next step of performance.

This course will meet once a week for 2 hours for a total of twelve weeks. Additional work out of class will be encouraged and required for students to achieve the best results with their writing. (Students should plan to spend an average of 2 hours per week outside of class working on assignments and their play script.)

Learning Outcomes:
Students will understand the structure of a story and the structure of a theatrical script.
Students will learn how to fully develop a character for a play or story.
Students will learn to write dialogue that helps convey and move a story forward.
Students will write and revise a 10-minute script that will not exceed 10 pages.

Also, the director, Ben Naasz, is willing to give acting classes for homeschoolers only if there is enough demand. He would also be willing to do homeschool only productions/plays with practices in the afternoons if there is enough interest. Comment here if you would be interested in something like that in the future.
