Downtown Playmakers Project

Downtown Playmakers Project is a playwriting and mentoring program, working with elementary students at MLK Elementary in Little Rock to create original theatre in collaboration with adult theatre artists.

The playmakers learn to unleash their imaginations and nurture their creative voices to tell stories unique to their communities, but accessible to all audiences.

This is a replication of of The 52nd Street Project in New York City, which serves children who live in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, and of the Manton Avenue Project in Providence, serving children who live in the Olneyville neighborhood.

Original works will be presented at The Rep April 19-21.

Tickets will be available soon!
