The Script-to-Stage program is A nine week, standards-based, public Elementary School program where students write their own original short script, then see it performed by professional actors. The Script-to-Stage program runs weekly during unstructured school time. A Volunteer Head-Mentor, trained by Young Storytellers, runs each class. Each student is given an individual mentor to work with them one-on-one and guide and encourage them as they imagine and develop their own short script. At the culmination of sessions, actors volunteer to perform the students’ scripts at an in-school assembly, called the "Big Show." Every student in the program presents a finished script, and all are given the chance to have their voices heard. For kids who normally receive little individualized attention and support bring their words to life as a piece of theater is transformative.
