These meetings are the heart of the program and are mandatory.

  • All 4D participants will be required to attend Master Classes as scheduled.
  • All 4D participants are required to attend the invited in-progress readings and the final staged readings.

  • Each member of the 4D team will volunteer with SRT’s Youth Onstage New Orleans (YONOLA) program at Success Prep. Volunteer dates will be scheduled around participants’ work and family commitments.
