The Silent Movie Theatre in Los Angeles is the last theater in the world to program only silent films. When Lawrence Austin, the elderly owner, hires 19-year-old Mary Gallagherto manage the concessions stand, tensions rise between the owner and his projectionist/lover, James Van Sickle. As Mary ingratiates herself into the her new chosen family, Van Sickle plots to gain control over the theater at any cost. Popcorn Girl is based on a true story.

About the Festival:
Each year, our New Works Advisory Board reads between 50 and 100 plays taken from the cumulative body of work of student playwrights who will be coming for the current summer session. These plays are ranked and vetted, and ten are selected for staged readings in collaboration with directors associated with our program--Certificate students, visiting faculty and guest artists.

These readings are presented free to the public, but there is limited seating. We also bring in more than a dozen guest responders who are active working theatre professionals from across the country. Many of our festival readings have gone on to be published, produced and won major awards. Come see tomorrow's stars today!

Our festival is presented in collaboration with Mill Mountain Theatre on their Waldron Stage.
