Young CA Writers' Project

The Mime Troupe is thrilled to have inherited this very successful education program from the Magic Theatre! Since 1994, the Young California Writers' Project (YCWP) has provided high school students with the opportunity to work with local playwrights in the development of their own short plays. Peers identify the top nine scripts from among the final bunch, and these are ultimately brought to life by professional actors and directors in public staged readings at a local theatre.

During the Winter of 2012, the Mime Troupe started its third year of administering YCWP at San Francisco's Balboa High School. As when we first picked the program up in 2009, we continue the program with the same collaboration, administrators and teachers at Balboa, who have come to view this program as a vital highlight in their students' academic year. A staged reading of the students' top plays was performed and directed by adult professionals. The program is FREE, and the public is welcome to attend!

We are currently hoping to be involve with YCWP again in 2013.
