Young Playwrights' Theater inspires young people to realize the power of their own voices.

Playwriting and Choreography at Trinidad Rec Center

This summer YPT teamed with CityDance to provide an innovative playwriting and choreography camp at the Trinidad Recreation Center.
 
The summer camp was highlighted in a recent piece on WAMU’s Metro Connection, "Searching for Solutions in Trinidad." 
 
Students in the Trinidad community, who have recently experienced a series of violent acts, were encouraged to write about the places within their neighborhood where they feel safe.
 
On Friday, August 1st, students gathered to share their creations with the community.  Twelve girls ages 7-12 demonstrated the dances they had created and read from their original play.
