Theatre of NOTE in Hollywood, California, produces the annual Young Writers Project, sending writers to coach high school students, selecting shows for production, then giving them their premiere on the Theatre of NOTE stage. Student writers are involved in casting from a pool of professional, working actors. Directors work with the writers as needed during the rehearsal process. Kids get to speak their minds, and you might be surprised by what you hear. This episode explores some of that journey, but mostly our shared journey. (Hint: It may be more shared than you think.)
