3GT's free playwriting program for middle-school aged girls who don't otherwise have access to theatre arts programs in their schools
Girl-identified youth in middle and high school. Our student participants come primarily from San Francisco and Oakland, although newly launched virtual workshops have seen youth from across the country join in our program and share their voices!
3Girls Theatre’s mission is to put the work of women of all ages on stage where it belongs! Unfortunately, our school system lacks the resources to offer theatre arts education to many of our young people. We fervently believe young girls and teens have voices that deserve to be heard on stage, just like their older sisters. In addition to strengthening teamwork and writing skills, our young writers learn how to be confident in sharing their opinions, stories, and personal brand of entertaining theatre with the City!
All workshops are free to participants, and can consist of 1-day seminars, 6-day intensives, "field trips" to professional theater, support submitting to national young playwright festivals, and public performances starring professional actors of original plays by the participants.
“GirlWrights brings out real topics and showcases them through the eyes of our girls. Thank you for believing in our girls and giving them a forum to express their creativity!”
– JIGNA NAMBIAR, GIRLWRIGHTS PARENT
