BRHS Cornfield Picks

The Cornfield Picks

  • <<< Logo/artwork created by Chloe Abbott 

    Show off your shorts SUBMIT August-September!!!

    We mean, send us your short plays!

    Some may not know, but Broad Run used to be called Cornfield High School, so that's where we got the festival name. The plays will not be about corn, although we may use the pun a lot in advertising!


    It doesn't have to be completely polished, but the best will be selected for our short play festival.

    If we get a whole lot of great plays (which we hope we do), we will pick a variety and ultimately the plays that our seniors would be most excited to direct!

    Submission guidelines will be posted in May, at the end of the preceding school year!

    That gives you all summer to write a play that is finger-lickin' good!
