Ever dreamed of putting your creative ideas on paper and seeing them come to life on the stage? This class will teach you how to tell your story through playwriting. Learn the essence of developing your plot, characters and message while creating your own short play. Students will be taught how to outline, format and develop their short plays in a workshop setting. Guest playwrights, directors and actors will join the class to offer their guidance and insight. Work with experienced playwright and actor, John Ruoff, on what makes a play successful and celebrate at the end of the 12-week course with a staged reading of your play on the Wade James Theatre stage. All levels of experience are welcome.

John Ruoff's professional writing career began as the head comedy writer for The Tricano DeSales talk show in the early 1980's in Seattle, which branched out to forming the Midnight Mystery Theater comedy radio show for which he has written 108 radio plays and still going strong. John sallied into the stage play medium through various writing workshops and theater groups, penning 35 One Acts, a musical comedy, and five full lengths, culminating in 55 productions of his work with three new full-length plays being produced in 2016. On the other side of the curtain, John is approaching his 500th performance as an actor, which includes his life long passion for silent clowning and radio theater.
