Youth Drama at Phillips' Mill

Youth Theater at Phillips' Mill

The Phillips’ Mill Community Association supports drama programming for youth. Our summer workshops have given young writers and actors a chance to learn how to create a character and write and perform a monologue. Children are guided in a series of improvisation exercises and discussions to inspire their creativity and expression. Participants are taught monologue writing techniques as they create their own works and then stage and perform them. 

Instructor: Fran Young is a member of the Phillips’ Mill Community Association Drama Steering Committee. She has a degree in theater and English from Northwestern University. She is certified to teach English, Theater and Public Speaking and taught in Verona, NJ, for 39 years. Now retired and living in New Hope, she is eager to revive the Phillips’ Mill Youth Drama program.    

Please email Fran with any questions you may have about future programming.
