If you're between the ages of 10 and 16 and are up for a unique creative adventure this summer, then look no further than our immersive "Animal Farm" writing & performance workshop! 

 

You'll work closely with fellow youth workshop attendees, D2D staff, and local writer/filmmaker Mathew Klickstein on creating a fresh new play based on your own authentic lived experiences and unrestricted artistic expression. For an added engaging twist, throughout the collaborative process, we'll be using George Orwell's immortal ANIMAL FARM as a thematic and cultural guidepost. 

 

A week of rehearsals will follow after the group scriptwriting process, resulting in two full performances of the work at downtown Dayton's premiere cultural event space, The Brightside. A thoughtful Q&A will follow each show in which audience members can ask workshop participants about their process. 

The workshop will take place starting in June 2021 with 2 performances on August 10 and 11 at 7pm. There is no fee for students to participate. Full staff and venues will be announced soon - please contact drennen@dare2defy.org with any questions.

 

**THEATRE EXPERIENCE NOT REQUIRED. We hope to cast a wide net in our call to the youth of Dayton for participation in what we know will be an enlightening, entertaining, and exciting new endeavor. Prepare to turn off your screens, journey outside your comfort zone, and see how far your imagination can take you! (And if that's not enough: snacks and bottled waters provided!)
