So you have a great concept that you think would make an awesome kid’s TV show or a brilliant idea for a play that you want to write for young audiences—what should you do before you put pen to paper? Come away from this 2-day workshop at Primary Stages Einhorn School of Performing Arts (ESPA) with the tools to write compelling scripts targeted toward children and teens and an understanding of how to break into this expanding and lucrative world.
with Cusi Cram (Writer, A Lifetime Burning at Primary Stages, Emmy Award nominee for "Arthur" on PBS) and Peter Hirsch (6-time Emmy-winning Writer, “Arthur” on PBS)
There is a huge demand for quality scripts written for young audiences, but too often the material available to young audiences is cliché, preachy, and downright poorly-written. Cusi Cram and Peter Hirsch will walk you through the nuts and bolts of dramatic storytelling for kids and share their intimate knowledge of this business.
Saturday, October 24 and Sunday, October 25
