Mighty Playwrights 2021

Every child has a story to tell.

Local primary students, nominated by their schools, work with professional mentors in the Library to develop and write short play scripts. The plays are then transformed into full-scale stage productions by The Lieder Theatre Company.

Goulburn Mulwaree Library's award-winning Mighty Playwrights program inspires young people to discover the power of their own thoughts and voices through literacy education, story telling, and the performing arts. Mighty Playwrights encourages and celebrates self expression, lifelong learning, and the free exploration of ideas and the imagination.
