• Young Writers Project

    YWP is NOTE's outreach program featuring original work from young LA playwrights.

    The Young Writers Project is a nine-year old artistic community outreach project produced for Theatre of NOTE by Jonathan Klein. Each year five writers from five high schools are chosen to participate in a workshop-based writing experiment that culminates in the staged production of five short plays, one play representing each school.

    This year, Young Writer's Project takes place on
    May 7 - 8 at 11am
    and May 14 - 15 at 11am
    featuring the following works:

    Frank Steins
    Written by Brandon Martinez

    Written by Gerardo Garcia

    Basketball with the Angels
    Written by Kristyn Byrd

    Reverse Psychology
    Written by Julianne Holmquist

    Written by Estella Church and the Students of Hawthorne High School: Stacy Alfaro, Jessica Almaraz, Caitlyn Bundy, Oscar Cabrera, Jocelyn Contreras, Herson Cruz, Selenia Gracia, Malik Lamont Haynes, Ruben Perez, Anthony Rivera, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Ricardo Salgado, Demetrius Solis, Bryanna Trask and Tiffany Williams.

    Free admission; donations appreciated.

    The YWP is made possible in part by a generous grant from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Community Foundation which provides grants to deserving community organizations that are working to improve Hollywood.
  • NOTEworthy

    NOTEworthy is Theatre of NOTE's staged reading series, established to foster relationships with playwrights as they develop new works. The playwrights chosen for this series will attend a staged reading of their works-in-progress and participate in a talkback with the cast and audience, giving the playwright an opportunity to make revisions based on this feedback. This is your chance to be an active participant in the playwriting process!

    Past NOTEworthy readings have included: Red Light, Green Light* by Erik Patterson, Zeppelin! by Bill Robens, Lydia in Bed* by Phinneas Kiyomura, And the Two Romeos by Jennifer Maisel, Dirt by Alex Dremann, Brandohead* by Chris Danowski and Film* by Patrick McGowan.

    * Plays that went on to become part of a NOTE mainstage season.

    Get Involved with NOTEworthy

    NOTE is currently accepting submissions for our NOTEworthy staged reading series. Submissions may be sent to or delivered to the theatre, attention: NOTEworthy. Plays should be complete works in development for the stage, not previously produced, and on which the writer is still planning to make revisions.
