book first draft
Alley Theatre’s community program, First Draft, transforms your best memory into a really great story! This workshop is a modern, out-of-the-box take on the age-old tradition of speaking our stories aloud. Pulling from a blend of easy playwriting and creative nonfiction techniques, you’ll tap into the skills and confidence you need to be an authority over a moment in your life. Join us to discover the most important elements of one of your personal anecdotes, and then speak your story into existence!
First Draft is offered at an hourly rate and can be tailored to your school or organization's needs. We'll bring it to you!
