Student Writers Group Showcase
SATURDAY, MAY 15, 2021 | 7:00PM MDT
Join us for the Student Writers Group Showcase and experience new work from emerging young playwrights!
For this annual showcase, each member of the Student Writers Group has developed an original 10-minute play, and has been paired with a professional director/dramaturg and a team of some of Calgary’s finest actors.
We hope you’ll join us on Zoom on Saturday, May 15 at 7:00pm – tickets are by donation! We can’t wait to share what these brilliantly creative young minds have come up with!
About the Student Writers Group
The Alberta Theatre Projects Student Writers Group is a unique opportunity for high school students to explore the craft of playwriting with professional playwrights and guest artists from across Canada. During this 8-month course, the students meet weekly (this year, online) with a playwright mentor to cultivate their playwriting skills, have conversations with our guest artists (including season artists and members of the Playwrights Unit), and build social connections with their peers.
This year, the Group has been facilitated by professional playwright and actor Camille Pavlenko (currently Alberta Theatre Projects’ Playwright in Residence and member of the Playwrights Unit).
