Student Projects

Advanced Playwriting students participate each spring in the New Plays Festival, which showcases their plays via the Theatre Department’s student directors and actors.

All playwriting students write plays for the bi-annual ten-minute play festivals that take place as staged readings via collaboration with the Theatre Department.
