Scriptwriting Workshop for Kids

Calling all future writers, producers, and directors! 
BC Summer Reading Club is excited to be partnering up with Green Thumb Theatre this summer to bring an exclusive mystery play for kids all over the province! Try your hand at screenwriting an ending to a play and enter your writing for a chance to have it read by professional actors. 
Here's how to get started: 
1) Download and read the script HERE.
2) Think about how you think the play should end.
3) Register for one or more sessions with our Summer Reading Club Assistant, William, to brainstorm, workshop, and edit your script ending.
4) Submit your writing entries to Green Thumb Theatre between July 26-28. 
Green Thumb Theatre will have professional actors do a live virtual play reading where they’ll select and read 3 different endings submitted by participants on Wednesday, August 18 at 2:00pm on YouTube!

This activity is best suited for kids ages 10-13 with an interest in creative writing. However, no keen child will be turned away.
