BGT 8.0 has begun! It’s our fourth year at PS75, and we’re so glad to maintain the relationship. Many of our new fifth-grade playwrights saw the 2017 production, so they came in hungry to write. We’re also hosting BGT at IS77, a middle school in Ridgewood. It’s our first time working with sixth graders– an exciting new challenge!

This year our theme is “Home.”

We started by thinking about what we love about our own homes and neighborhoods, and what we wish could change about them. We were introduced to the basic parts of a play and tools of playwriting. We wrote short dialogues and shared them with each other, establishing what will become our regular structure of writing, sharing, and receiving feedback. We have wonderful groups of students at both schools, and we’re already looking forward to producing their plays in April!
