StageWrite empowers youth to become actively engaged in their education and passionate about learning through the theatre arts. We employ dramatic activities to involve young people in reading, writing, speaking, and listening as a holistic and meaningful communication process. Through the communal art of theatre, young people build skills in creative expression, collaboration and critical thinking: all necessary components of becoming literate and engaged members of an equitable society. We serve San Francisco public elementary schools during the school day.
