New Voices is a two-week production process for students ages 13-19 that takes original one-act plays from script to stage for public performance. These plays will be written, directed, designed, performed, and technically managed by program participants. No previous theatrical experience required! Production mentorship will be provided by experienced members of the Olney Theatre Center staff. The program culminates in a final performance of the one-act plays. With New Voices, students can be extensively involved in all aspects of the theater, not just performance.
