Festival Reading #10: Marvelous Cornelius by Shane Strawbridge
Directed by Neil David Seibel
Casey, a student new to New Orleans, has been given the assignment to do a presentation about someone she thinks is a hero. When a hurricane tears her city apart, she learns that heroes come in all shapes and sizes, with some of them residing in her own backyard.

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.
