Weber State Student Heads to Kennedy Center



Congratulations to Weber State University student and playwright Chris Shenefelt, whose one-act play is in the running for a prestigious national award. ---

“Reality Fallacy,” by WSU theater major Chris Shenefelt, was selected as one of four national finalists to be given a concert reading by equity actors at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in Washington, D.C., April 19-24. After the recent   Region VIII American College Theatre Festival in Los Angeles, one-act play respondents read and selected four national finalists from all regional finalists for invitation to the national festival.

The winner selected from among those four finalists will receive the John Cauble Award for Outstanding Short Play, the benefits of which include a $1,000 prize, a professional development fellowship, and Dramatists Guild Award, which comes with full membership in the guild. Good luck on the big stage.
