Teen-In-Residence

Next Draft is delighted to soon (!) introduce our 2022/2023 Teen-in-Residence!

Over the 2022/2023 season with support from Theatre Direct, a teen has been commissioned to create an original work. This new play will be workshopped through our Voice 2 Text program this winter and then be adapted into a digital format to be presented in Spring 2023. In addition to the commission, they will participate in our 2022/2023 Next Draft programming and receive mentorship from the Theatre Direct team.

Join our mailing list for updates on how you can check out their work with Theatre Direct!
