In 2016, with major support from the Knight Foundation, we partnered with Miami-Dade Public Schools to initiate City Theatre Scholars; Giving Voice to the Next Generation of Playwrights,
or more simply, NextGen.
During the school year, aspiring high school playwrights are invited to participate in intensive workshops that span multiple weekends. Student playwrights work with professional playwrights, directors, and actors to create, rehearse, and present original work during readings at Summer Shorts.
The 2016 inaugural cycle benefited Miami-Dade students. As of 2017, the program will accept students from Broward County.
THE 2017 MASTER PLAYWRIGHT IS DOMINIC D'ANDREA.
