Young Playwrights' Theater inspires young people to realize the power of their own voices.



How does the Workshop work?
The ensemble is guided by these values, written and agreed upon by its members.






We are a team. We treat every member of the team with respect, and we embrace each other’s differences. It is never okay to make fun of someone’s idea.





We work together by making a thread. We each add a little piece of fiber and in the end we get this rope. We are all linked together by this passion that brings us understanding and abundant knowledge about each other and our world.




We want this program to be a place where a person can freely express their opinions. All ideas are important. All ideas are considered.




We are here to grow as writers and actors.





We depend on each other as a team. We each take pride in our own work and the work of the whole group. We always try our best.





We want people to be inspired by our work. We will create theater that is relevant to our community, and will make people think.



This is not school, and it shouldn’t feel like school. We are here to have fun!
