YPT Education Director Jared Shamberger and The Theatre Lab Schol for Dramatic Arts Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director Deb Gottesman spent some time talking with Mazi Mutafa on Something to Say on WPFW 89.3FM.

Shamberger and Gottesman spoke about the Arts Institute for Creative Advancement, a program offering paid job training with opportunities for employment in technical theater for young adults starting January 2023. The 12-month program will run Monday through Friday evenings.

You can listen to the full segment here:

Young Playwrights’ Theater will be aiding students in the Arts Institute for Creative Advancement in writing their own 10 to 15-minute plays. Professional actors will then perform pieces of those plays in a celebratory reading. From those plays, four to five students will be selected to revise and polish their scripts to prepare for a full-stage reading.
