Play-writing Workshops

Our Artistic Director, Jay Hamburger, will be hosting play-writing workshops. He will be sharing his knowledge of, expertise on, and years of accumulated wisdom regarding successful theatrical writing techniques. Jay's experience includes decades of playwriting, acting, directing, and producing for the theatre both in Canada and the United States. Jay is also an expert instructor, and has taught nearly all aspects of theatre in both countries to children, adults and seniors. He has worked extensively with First Nations artists in BC, wrote some of the song lyrics for the blockbuster musical Godspell, and has had a number of his original scripts produced both in Vancouver, BC, and in New York City, NY. Jay has also written both poetry and newspaper articles for various small presses. The play-writing workshops will get right into the very nature of what makes for good, engaging drama, by drawing on real life experiences that bring forth conflict and motivation. Embark on an exciting, hands-on, and informative three hour journey that will prove inspirational for future play work. Jay has a knack for drawing forth – and getting down on paper – those scenes that live in the back of the mind of every shy and inexperienced writer. Please bring three pages of original dialogue to be read, discussed, and critiqued.
