Phoenix Theatre Kicks off the 15th Annual Hormel New Works Festival
How into theater are you? We dare you to spring for the value-packed VIP pass to Phoenix Theatre's 15th annual Hormel New Works Festival.
You won't merely get admission to four star-studded staged readings and An Evening of Short Plays and the results of the legendary and incredible 24-Hour Theatre Project -- you'll also enjoy crazy insider access to parties and other cool stuff, like first and second draft table reads of the headlining plays.
The pass is only $75, or $50 for students. In this weather, it may actually be cheaper than staying home. Individual public event tickets and staged reading packages are available, as well, and the fest will showcase two more plays in free "sit-down reads" on Saturday, July 14, and Saturday, July 21.
VIP events start with the kickoff table read, for Monte Merrick's contemporary love-and-war story First Casualty, at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, July 8.
