Next Draft will soon announce its 2023/2024 Teen-in-Residence!

Over this season, the Teen-in-Residence will be commissioned to create an original work and have the opportunity to participate in Next Draft programming.

As part of the program, they will meet regularly with Company Producer Madeleine Brown through self-guided sessions to support the work’s development and offer guidance in order to complete a first draft of a full length-play and digital adaptation/short film of one of its scenes. The play will be presented in a workshop by professional actors and the adaptation screens at an accompanying event.

The Teen-in-Residence will be paid an honorarium of $1500. 

For additional information, please contact Madeleine at
