In 2024, there will be three unique Young Theatre Makers Ensemble experiences. 

Musical Theater and Devising Workshops 

These workshops will take place April 20. Matthew Greenberg, assistant professor of theater performance at the University of Wyoming, will lead the workshops. The two workshops are open to all students in 10th through 12th grades. Students are encouraged to participate in one or both workshops in order to experience a variety of theatrical training.

Play/Write Short Play Showcase

April 22 through May 14, the Ensemble will prepare for the Play/Write Short Play Showcase hosted by Relative Theatrics in Laramie. Play/Write teaches the foundation of dramatic writing and theater literacy to fifth-graders. The Ensemble will work on staging and rehearsing two original plays written by Laramie fifth-graders before traveling to the University of Wyoming in mid-May to participate in a showcase aimed at celebrating and validating the artistic work of young people.
