Once In a Lifetime Experience

GET READY FOR THE
ULTIMATE WRITER'S EXPERIENCE

A STAGE AND SCREEN SHOW TO CELEBRATE EXTRAORDINARY YOUNG WRITERS

  • We provide instructions for a short story writing competition OR schools submit from their own assignment.
  • Our team chooses up to two finalists. The winner’s story is turned into a short film. The runner up will have their story transformed into a stage play.
  • The INCREDIBLE part of these productions is that a well-known celebrity will be in both productions.
  • The audience and winner will not know that the CELEBRITY WILL COME OUT AFTER THE FILM IS OVER!
  • Once the film is over, the celebrity, our acting team and winners will begin the stage production.
  • We spend 20 minutes explaining the stage and screen industries and the process of a story going from pen to production.

The cost of a one-hour stage and screen show is $1500 plus travel. We attempt to book shows at other schools in the area to split the travel costs OR offer an additional service such as a ‘parent-pay’ screenwriting or acting workshop held the evening of the assembly or the following weekend. Booking a stage and screen show requires 3 to 6 months of notice.
