National Young Playwrights’ Association (NYPA)

The Young Playwrights’ Association is The National Theatre’s newest program, aimed at enhancing the education of high school students by providing invaluable access to Broadway productions. The National Theatre partners with The Young Playwrights’ Theatre to bring the most dedicated students to the theatre to engage with the shows in our Broadway at the National Season. These students also participate in a discussion with professionals, who give insight into the theatre industry.
