Program Type


Tiny Playwrights residency participants will use props and graphic organizers to collaboratively create an original story with a beginning, middle, and end. Students will then add dialogue to transform their story into a play. Participants will use story elements: character, setting, conflict resolution and playwriting elements of dialogue, antagonist, and protagonist.


Typically, residencies range from $2,000 to $3,000, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backward’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.

Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:

  • A kick-off assembly
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session
  • A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
  • A student culminating or sharing event
  • An evaluation meeting

For a rough estimate, residency prices include:

  • Artist assembly (see artist’s page for pricing)
  • A set of workshops ($100 each)
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session ($100 each)
  • An evaluation meeting ($100)
  • Mileage and supply costs depend on artist location and the residency chosen
