Led by Kennedy Center Teaching Artist Mary Hall Surface 

Playwriting offers a powerful way to interest students in writing or pre-writing processes. Participants examine ways to help students learn how to think like playwrights and to develop a script that draws on their improvisations of characters and ideas. The workshop culminates in an activity based on Marcus Pfister's The Rainbow Fish. This workshop is offered in conjunction with Student Matinee performances of The Rainbow Fish in March 2019.

This workshop was developed in association with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and is partially underwritten by the U.S. Department of Education and the National Committee for the Performing Arts.
