Part of Your World: “Mainstream” Artists Create TYA

How do "mainstream" artists navigate creating TYA for the first time?

TYA Theatres and audiences are energized when acclaimed mainstream artists known for their work for adult audiences create Theatre for Young Audiences, either for the first time or regularly as part of their practice. What challenges do these artists face in writing for young audiences for the first time? What have they learned in the experience of bridging this divide? What can they teach us about our own practice, and what support do they need from the TYA community in creating new work?

Join TYA/USA as we interview a panel of nationally-celebrated artists who will share their motivations, challenges and hopes for creating projects specifically for young audiences.
