Founded in 2016, the DG1 is a special educational offering from The Dramatists Guild. Start with one of our foundational courses, examining the structure of plays or musicals. More experienced playwrights, lyricists, and composers hone their craft by participating in our writing workshops and masterclasses, led by top industry professionals.
We’ve designed a curriculum of classes — both online and in-person — that utilizes the talent of the very best of our prominent Institute playwriting and musical theatre faculty into a variety of extended educational classes (anything from a long weekend to something more rigorous that’s 6-10 weeks in duration). Though we will always give priority to Guild members (Guild members receiving a significant reduction in tuition), our classes are open for admission to all artists in the theatre community.
