The Beijing People's Art Theatre announced the launch of a training program for young directors and scriptwriters.

The program will take place from May to August at the theater with three-month courses by veteran directors and scriptwriters from the Beijing People's Art Theatre.

"It's the first time in the history of the Beijing People's Art Theatre, which spans more than 70 years, that we are launching a training program for directors and scriptwriters. We are very excited," said Feng Yuanzheng, veteran actor and president of the theater, in Beijing on May 8.

Sixteen young directors and scriptwriters will be trained by more than 30 artists, including scriptwriters He Jiping and Meng Bing. After a monthlong intensive training period in class, the young scriptwriters and directors will work together on new scripts and stage productions.

The stage productions will be performed by young actors and actresses from the theater during the last month of the training program.
