Keen Teens: Free After-School Theatre Program

This is from Blake Lawrence, of Keen Company:
It is time for the third season of Keen Teens to begin and we have begun inviting students to participate. In our first two seasons, over 60 students from the New York City area have made their Off-Broadway debuts in our World Premiere productions and our first six plays have been published and are being produced by high schools around the country.

Keen Teens is a unique opportunity for students in grades 9-12 to work in a professional theater setting and help develop plays written exclusively for them. No prior experience or training is required. Only a curiousity about acting and theatre and a commitment to our process. Students who have worked with us continue to come back and bring their friends. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

This is the audition notice for Keen Teens:
