What is CreateHER?
CreateHER is a free course for girl-identifying or non-binary high school students interested in writing and producing for theatre. Through the program, students are given the technical and creative tools to take their creativity from an idea to reality.
CreateHER provides high-level playwriting and producing courses as well as features guest speakers who are leaders in the industry: from producers and general managers, to groundbreaking playwrights, dramaturgs, and casting directors. By the end of the semester, the students write, produce, and present a short play of their own!
