Manhattan Experimental Theater Workshop

Workshop: May 13 - Jun 17

Performances: Jun 16 & 17

Instructor: Gwethalyn Williams
Producer: Lauren Fischer

The Manhattan Experimental Theater Workshop (MXTW) brings high school students together to rejuvenate their sense of play, and draw on their creativity to interrogate their world by exploring experimental theater making techniques.  Participants become members in a company that will train together to learn performance skills and write, rehearse, and perform their own new plays. The workshop is a fun and nurturing experience that invites students to unlock new potentials within themselves and share their voices. The company will meet several times a week for the five weeks of the workshop, which culminates with public performances on the final Friday and Saturday of the schedule. For more information visit
