Applications are now open for the 2019/2020 season of LEAP! Deadline October 25, 2019
Launching its 13th year in the fall of 2019, LEAP (Learning Early About Playwriting) is a dynamic, interactive program for young playwrights aged 16 to 25. Over 165 students have been mentored through the creation of original dramatic works since the program’s inception in 2006. Participants learn the basic principles of playwriting, share their work with classmates, and provide feedback for one another in a safe and supportive environment. Students also receive feedback from theatre professionals and have their plays workshopped and presented to the public in staged readings.
LEAP is a full-scholarship program, and is 100% funded by donors and sponsors. There is no cost to the student whatsoever.
Instruction is offered in three levels: Level 1 students are mentored through the creation of a short play (10 minutes), Level 2 students write one-act plays, and a Level 3 student is supported through the creation of a full-length play.
