More Shows in June

Oops! I missed a couple of outstanding theatre events coming up in June - the New Works Festival and Festiv-all!

Here's what to watch for:

- The Third Annual New Works Festival at Marshall University runs June 18, 19 and 20. Jonathan Joy will have two new plays presented, including Fly By Night and Senate Idol, both premiering June 18. Clint McElroy and Jeremy Richter have new pieces on the other two nights.

- And Jonanthan Joy's play Fly By Night will also be presented at the Clay Center as a part of the One Act Fest at Festiv-all June 27 at 8 p.m. Two other plays will be performed that same night. More information is available here: http://www.festivallcharleston.com/.

- Other plays will also be part of Charleston's Festiv-all, including How Cissy Grew featuring James Denton of Desperate Housewives and Charleston Stage Company's 10-minute play, The Crossing.

Again, more on Festiv-all as news develops (and I track it down).
