Education lasts your entire life!

ACT is dedicated to the pursuit of new art, new thought, and a higher degree of artistic excellence. ACT's adult education programs are taught by professional artists who give participants the freedom to develop their creative voices in a supportive, invigorating, and challenging setting.

"I simply wanted to take a moment to mention how much I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED YOUR CLASS THESE PAST WEEKS; unfortunately ­ after  graduate school workshops, and teaching undergraduate workshops myself ­ I found myself a bit disillusioned by the process on the whole, but the class structure that you utilized was, without question, ONE OF THE BEST THAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED, and I am confident that my work has improved through each session."

- Stacy D. Flood, 2011 ACT Intermediate Playwriting Student


Adult Playwriting Program

ACT's Education Department is excited to offer the following class as part of our Adult Playwrights Program:

New Play Camp
Instructor:Stephanie Timm
Aug 10–24 | Sign up (To register, please follow the link to "Buy Tickets".)

Write the first draft of brand new play in just two weeks! This course teaches you to deliver a first draft on a short deadline through a series of writing exercises and an obligation to meet deadlines for each session. This class is perfect if you have no idea where to begin, are open to creating something out of thin air, or if you have an idea for a play that you’ve always wanted to write but haven’t dedicated the time to it yet. This is not a class to workshop an existing play. Finish the class with a showcase in which you will hear an excerpt of your play draft read by professional actors in front of an invited theatre audience.

Class Dates: Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, Aug 10–24, 2014, 7:00pm–9:30pm.


All classes and showcases are held at ACT, 700 Union Street, Seattle, WA 98101
