Create an original theatrical work in 5 days!
Young Playwrights mentored by Professional Playwrights.
Age 15-18. 3 separate 1-week labs August 7-25. Tuition free.
Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center.
Our 3rd annual lab offers opportunities for youth with disabilities and without disabilities to practice playwriting in a nurturing, process-focused workshop. Young artists are mentored by Kansas City's finest adult professional playwrights.
Each year, at least one piece will be chosen for further development and given full production later that season on the Spinning Tree mainstage.
Friends of Spinning Tree at every level were invited to watch an hour of the 2022 lab! They were able to witness the genesis of an original theatrical work.
Join Friends of Spinning Tree today and get an insiders' peek at 2023's creative process!
