Playwrights Theatre’s Creative Arts Academy starts in July

PTNJ’s two-week process-oriented classes result in theatre pieces created by the students and shared with family and friends that incorporate writing, acting, singing, and improvisation. Students learn to appreciate the spoken word, gesture, and the importance of narrative and character in their daily lives. All in a fun and non-threating environment.

In Playwrights Theatre’s Creative Arts Academy, students practice transferable life skills while receiving quality training in theatre-based craft. Through this craft, students learn to collaborate and empathize, to know when to lead, when to assist, and to develop the confidence to assert themselves in the service of others. Students also practice executive function skills that help them take healthy risks and deal with setbacks, as well as skills that develop working memory for complicated tasks, and that build kind of intellectual flexibility needed to come up with creative solutions to old and new problems.

All classes are taught by trained professional theatre artists/educations. Classes are devised to be taken multiple times.
