The Playground is a month-long, multi-discipline performing arts intensive which culminates in a weekend of performances. A dozen top-notch teaching artists have been enlisted to offer 10 hands-on, material-developing workshops that explore the intersection of performance and writing; playwriting, storytelling, improvisation, movement, songwriting, comedy and lots more. Participants at all experience levels are encouraged to deep dive into the whole mind-boggling festival (more than 30 hours of workshops), but are welcome to dip their toe in one workshop at a time.
Workshops run Monday and Tuesday evenings from 6:30-9:30 Sept. 30 to Oct. 29. Performances November 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
