PlayWrite was AWESOME! It boosted my confidence and helped me learn new ways to express my feelings, thoughts and senses.
It was the most amazing experience that I have ever done in my life. I enjoyed EVERYTHING about it. The activities that they had us Do before hand, the “warms ups” and the writing time we had. I loved the coaches, they all were amazing at what they were doing and knew exactly what they were doing. I think that the best part of this whole thing was getting to see our work up on stage in front of everyone being performed by amazing actors and actresses. The feeling is something that I can’t really explain. It was so strong and you just got this overwhelming feeling of accomplishment. I want to do this again! I miss it even! I was so attached to these characters that I created and I wanted everything to go right for them. I felt as it I had known them all my life. As if they were my family. It took so much to make it what it was. But it was so worth it. You put so much into this that when its over you just want to cry, with happiness because you got to see the amazing play you have written. But you are also torn and sad because it’s over and you don’t get to do it anymore.
PlayWrite is an amazing opportunity and it’s like nothing that you’ll be able to get to do in a public school! I’ve learned different ways of explaining myself, of being descriptive, and seeing the world. I was really proud of myself for choosing to do this—especially since it is something I wouldn’t usually do!
