Amazing talent, amazing opportunities

The Young Playwrights Program (YPP), ACT's flagship education program, sends professional playwright teaching artists into area schools for 10 weeks to teach the basics of playwriting to Puget Sound-area students. ACT's YPP equips participants with tools for creative self-expression, endowing them with self-confidence and the sense that their ideas—about themselves, their world, and the challenges they face—matter, and their voices will be heard. 

"This program has really helped me to find out more about myself. The more I write, I discover connections between each piece and that's when I realize, wow, this is what I'm interested in, this is who I am."
