WiseWrite performance, 2018


In The Rep’s WiseWrite Program, fifth-grade students learn playwriting while increasing written communication skills.

Working with theatre professionals to learn the elements necessary to a successful script, these students work to create their own plays. Selected plays are presented at a festival held at The Rep.

The 24th Annual WiseWrite Young Playwrights Festival will be presented April 7, 2020, and will feature work by students from Dewey International Studies Elementary and Mason Elementary. The event is free and open to the public.

WiseWrite is a collaborative project with Springboard.

WiseWrite is presented with generous assistance from Mary Ann Lee, The Missouri Arts Council, The DeWitt and Caroline Van Evera Foundation, DCA Family Foundation and the Clifford Willard Gaylord Foundation.
