Kompany Family Theatre is dedicated to nurturing playwrights through the development, workshop, and performance stages of creating new scripts for young audiences.

Writers (and would-be writers!) are invited to join our annual New Works for Young Audiences Programme.

The Playwright’s Toolbox is a virtual, hands-on workshop series for people interested in writing quality scripts for young audiences. All writers of all levels are welcome!

  • explore theatre for young audiences and families,

  • explore and apply script writing techniques and structures to writing for these audiences, and

  • generate ideas, themes, characters and story-lines that can be developed further.


Workshops begin January 7, 2021 and run every Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

New participants are welcome to join at any time!

Script Submissions

We are also happy to receive and read unsolicited scripts that are appropriate for our audiences!

Contact Artistic Director, Jan Taylor at to submit a script or for more information.
