PLAYWRITING

Online Tutors International supports student playwrights in writing dramatic works that may be performed at school or in community theatre programs. Creating a script for a play or musical challenges a writer in ways that few other genres do, as they have to envision how their piece will come to life in a live theatrical performance.

What We Provide

Playwriting Tutoring

COURSE INCLUDES

  • Finding and developing ideas for theatrical pieces
  • Studying model scripts to learn playwriting techniques
  • Creating vivid characters who move the play forward, act as the agent of conflict and overcome obstacles
  • Deciding on the structure of the play; organizing its acts and scenes, and clarifying its story, the chronological course of events that took place on and off the stage
  • Developing plot, the protagonist’s journey, a clear problem for the character to solve
  • Incorporating theme, a central idea, intent, purpose or message
  • Writing narrative and dramatic dialogue, words with which the characters define themselves
  • Creating spectacle and a visual world through setting, scenery, costumes, light, sound, choreography, and style
  • Using rhythm, the pacing of the language, music, pattern and beat that create the mood and visual tempo of the show
  • Drafting and revising the script into an enthralling final script and formatting the play upon completion
For Special Courses, we recommend hour-long sessions.
Students may want longer sessions when they have big projects or pressing deadlines.
