Spark Development Series

Develop your script!

The Spark Development Series is a script development program that provides local Simcoe County playwrights the opportunity to further develop their new scripts.

Selected scripts will receive a one-day new play development workshop, led by Dramaturg & Education Co-ordinator, Leah Holder, working with paid actors. Playwrights will also receive additional dramaturgical support and professional guidance on avenues where the playwright can receive further guidance on their new script.

Check out the participants of our 2023 program below!
