Instructor: David Dudley

In Short Play Boot Camp, we will explore and write short-form plays. Students will be introduced to the five key elements of a successful short play: theme, character, structure, dialogue, and theatricality. Then through a series of practical exercises, participants will generate raw material to be used in crafting the first draft of a new short play. They will read work aloud, critique, and discuss revisions.

Workshop fee: $45 for Catamount Arts members and high school students/$50 for non-members. Scholarship funds are available for high school students; please call Anne at 802-748-2600 ext. 108 for details.

Registration deadline: November 8

Parents of high school students under age 18: Please complete an enrollment form HERE after paying for the workshop.
