Junior Cam Burns new original song, “Jim Boogie”,  has been selected for performance in The Coterie Theatre’s Young Playwrights’ Festival.  His piece will be presented on The Coterie stage Sunday, May 5, at 7:00 p.m.

Burns was invited to become a member of The Coterie’s Young Playwrights’ Roundtable in February 2017, after participating in The Coterie’s Reaching the Write Minds playwriting workshop at Lansing High School.  The members of the Roundtable have each worked to create their own plays or monologues through the course of the year in workshops at The Coterie.  Under the mentorship of Artistic Director Jeff Church, Roundtable members listen, critique, and provide feedback to each other in order to develop their work.

Not many students are able to experience this, seeing that only a handful are chosen for performance on The Coterie’s stage. “It feels really great to know that my work was good enough to be selected. I have worked really hard to create this and it has finally paid off,” said Burns.
