Playing with Plays (5 day spring break camp for students in Grades 4-7)

Playing with Plays
April 3-8, 2023
9:00 AM-12:00 PM
Grades 4-7

Discover the tools and develop the skills it takes to write your own play! We will watch and read excerpts from published plays and understand the methods in which playwrights work. Focal points will include character motivations, significance of props, setting as a character, scene structure, and understanding performance. Through generative prompts and group games, students will pinpoint topics and themes to incorporate in their own original script.

We will offer this morning session from April 3-8.
Students are encouraged to bring a lunch and register for the afternoon session of Comedy Improv too! (A $25 refund will be issued back to purchasers of both sessions.)

This session will take place in person at HVWC. Our historic station house is located in Philipse Manor / Sleepy Hollow, NY.
