Next Draft

Welcome to Theatre Direct’s new programming for teens, Next Draft: the future in-process

This fall, Next Draft kicks off with three theatre-based offerings for young people ages thirteen to eighteen, providing a platform for teens to create work and build community.

First up is After The Beep, a creation workshop in which participants will craft voicemail monologues while exploring the theme of mental health. Next on offer is Voice 2 Text, a PA Day workshop where teens will be invited to share their acting talents as they explore new plays by emerging playwrights, culminating in staged readings. And, finally, we are delighted to introduce our first-ever Teen-in-Residence Simaiya Shirley who has been commissioned to create a new play to premiere later this season at our FORWARD MARCH FESTIVAL ~ Stand in the Place Where You Live
