Teens WRITE is a weekly three-month program, in which youth write, revise, cast, direct, and produce original plays culminating in a Ten-Minute Play Festival. Led by playwright Fabiola R. Decius, teens learn basic elements of playwriting, how to critically respond to other’s work in a reassuring setting, the steps in rewriting and revising, establishing criteria for auditioning and casting a play, and directing techniques. Additionally, there are guest appearances by local theater personnel.
