Writing Scripts for Young People by Michelle Tan


Ever had a performance thrown onto you and not know where to begin?

Fear not, as we hear you! Join us on Saturday morning as we power up our knowledge on scriptwriting with Michelle Tan. In this workshop, you will share your process and challenges in crafting original and adapted text, build a small arsenal of writing exercises and other tools to develop your own process, and develop a sense of what works in performance by bringing brief written excerpts to life.
