YOU HAVE STORIES TO TELL THAT CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!
Writing Theatre is a year-long programme with NZ playwright and teacher Gary Henderson, beginning at introductory level.
Learn the art and craft of writing for live performance, using the spoken word, action, light, sound, and design. Discover your own unique voice and create stories that will touch and move an audience. In this class, you’ll learn skills which you can easily adapt to other forms of writing or storytelling.
The programme consists of four eight-week terms during which you'll write and workshop three scripts of increasing length and complexity. You’ll have a two-hour class each week and an online component through which you will interact with your colleagues and tutor between classes and terms.
