Young Writers Project

Young Writers Project 2023

The Young Writers Project was the brainchild of NOTE member Jonathan Klein. In 2001 he organized an outreach program as an opportunity for Theatre of NOTE to work with high school students on developing and producing theatre pieces. Utilizing NOTE writers, we lead workshops in high schools throughout Southern California. We then produce selected pieces, performed and directed by NOTE members and guest artists. Since 2001 we have premiered more than 75 plays, some of which have gone on to win awards at other festivals. We are proud to keep up this tradition and are now in our 22nd year. We look forward to many more.

This year’s YWP performance dates are May 13, 14, 20, 21 @ 11am. Tickets are by donation only – both cash and card will be accepted at the door. We hope you join us in supporting these young artists! 

Life Lab Notes 
Young Writers Project

To honour these young writers and Theatre of NOTE and the Young Writers Project, I interviewed some students from a participating school. Ten plays were submitted from their school, one was chosen to be produced. I met with five of these kids to talk about writing, their voice, and not being chosen.
