'HOW TO WRITE THE TEN MINUTE PLAY' Workshop Set for Stella Adler Theatre, 2/8-22
A three-week workshop, "How to Write The Ten Minute Play - And Get It Produced!" will run for three Saturdays, Feb. 8, 15, 22, 2014, from 12 to 4pm at the Stella Adler Theatre.
Ten minute plays are a great way to get started as a Playwright. And it's a great way to experiment, create and discover your dramatic voice. More and more theaters have festivals and contests specifically for the genre. It is far easier to get a ten minute play produced than a full-length one. And most theaters want plays that haven't been produced -- which means the new writer has just as good a chance as the experienced one.
In this workshop, students will learn how to write a good, tight ten minute play that theaters will want to produce. Everything from format to characters to genre will be covered. They'll learn what to do, and what not to do, in their script. They'll have a chance to work on and complete a ten-minute play of their own. They'll learn several different techniques for writing their first drafts and how to approach the rewrites.
And then, just as importantly, they'll find out how to get that play produced! How to market it and get it into the hands of theaters all over the world, and how to get into festivals and contests. How to get it on stage!
