Multicultural Playwright Program

Applications are now open for our 3 day Multicultural Playwright Program. The program will run in term 2 2017 for students from Years 7 - 12. Participating students will work for 3 days with the artists from the renowned Zeal Theatre to develop an original work which will be performed for a live audience.

This program is an opportunity for students from a refugee background or with English as an additional language or dialect (EAL/D) to share their stories whilst developing skills in literacy, script-writing and performance.

The program runs for 3 days 22, 23 and 24 May at the Powerhouse Youth Theatre, Fairfield.

This program is a highly engaging and interactive experience which specifically caters for students from a refugee and multicultural background. The devised work will be based on students stories and experiences. No previous performance experience is required but students will be actively involved in all of the workshop activities.

Applications are now open. Click here to apply.
