Theater Makers (began as Young Writers and Directors) is the class to learn how theater is made! An experience for writers ages 10-20 to write an original play in the fall and see it produced in the spring! Young directors take the plays and bring them to life with young actors for the world premiere! What are you waiting for? Let's make some theater!
