The Manoa Project, teen playwriting competition and ensemble apprencticeship. This program is free to all who participate. Through out the academic year, Tricklock Company members, visit high schools and provide playwriting workshops. Students are then asked to submit their original scripts in the spring. Through a blind read, the best script is chosen for a full production. Second place receives a staged reading. Both young playwrites are mentored by Tricklock Company artists. In the summer we hold our 6 week intensive actor training program for teens. As a part of the training program students produce the winning plays with productions here in Albuquerque at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, our parnter in the Manoa Project, and then in Santa Fe.
We have opened a new performance space - The Tricklock Performance Laboratory located at 110 Gold Avenue SW, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87104
