Playwriting Workshop

The New World Children's Theatre Playwriting Workshop for the The Fits vs. The Fats play. CLICK HERE for more information.

Classes meet twice a week to write play. (Usually the sessions are 3:30-
5pm on Thursdays and 2-3:30pm on Saturdays, although we are somewhat
flexible.) Once the play is written, the kids meet three times a week to
rehearse and create the sets for the play.

The Workshop will conclude with 3 performances, May 18 through May 20,
2007 at The Kent Stage, 175 E. Main in downtown Kent.

The New World Children’s Theater began as The New World Puppet Theater
at the North Water Street Gallery in Kent, Ohio, in January of 1993.
Originally, it was comprised of home-school children. Throughout the
years , however, it has grown to include public-schooled children as
well. Eventually, the troupe outgrew the puppets and the ensemble became
The New World Children’s Theater, which has produced 20 plays since
1994. In addition to the emphasis on original playwriting, the company
is dedicated to using recycled materials in the construction of its sets
and props. This fosters an understanding of a sustainable planet as well
as an understanding of how to work with limited resources. The only
requirement is an active imagination.

The New World Children’s Theatre is always looking for donations to
support students from low income families as well as our our ongoing
activities. Donations are tax deductible and can be made to Standing
