Stories from the Studio: Mighty Playwrights

STA were excited to catch up with the Lieder Theatre and chat about the Mighty Playwrights program.
Mighty Playwrights OPENS TONIGHT!!

Every child has a story to tell.

Local primary students, nominated by their schools, work with professional mentors in Goulburn Mulwaree Library to develop and write short play scripts. The plays are then transformed into full-scale stage productions by The Lieder Theatre Company.

Goulburn Mulwaree Library‘s award-winning Mighty Playwrights program inspires young people to discover the power of their own thoughts and voices through literacy education, story telling, and the performing arts. Mighty Playwrights encourages and celebrates self expression, lifelong learning, and the free exploration of ideas and the imagination.

Don’t miss these 7 amazing short plays, written by 7 incredible young writers. 19 actors playing over 70 different characters in 7 different shows, with original music and sound design and some of the most amazing costumes you’ll ever see, all presented in one spectacular evening of entertainment.
