More Information

Hollins Festival of New Works Friday, July 20 – Sunday, July 22, 2018 Mill Mountain Theatre’s Waldron Stage, 20 Church Ave SE Each summer at the end of July, we present a three-day event showcasing readings of student work from the Playwright’s Lab. These readings are minimally staged for the general public and close to a dozen guest professional responders from all over the globe. Guest responders include publishers, arts administrators, playwrights, professional actors, artistic directors, and come from as far away as Los Angeles and as close as downtown Roanoke. Many of our festival shows have gone on to have full productions, not only at Mill Mountain Theatre but also in New York and Los Angeles! Get acquainted with these plays and playwrights before they are famous, and engage in a conversation about theatre with our students, faculty, and some established theatre professionals. Admission is free; however, due to limited seating, advance tickets required. Tickets available online: brownpapertickets.com (search by play title) July 20, 7 pm July 21-22, 11 am, 2 pm, 4 pm, 8 pm (The 8 pm slot on the July 22 is a panel discussion with our Festival Guest Respondents) Sponsored by the graduate program in playwriting.
