Local Kevin Leonard Honored At SUNY Oswego
SUNY Oswego senior Kevin Leonard of Rockaway Park is one of seven winners in the college’s annual “New Voices” 10-page-play competition.
Leonard, whose play is titled “Elevator Man,” joins fellow honorees Eli Ouderkirk, a senior of Holland Patent; Katherine Boswell, senior, Buffalo; Gavin McCarthy, freshman, Blooming Grove; Samson Dikeman Jr., senior, Altamont; Stephen Russomano, senior, Tillson; and Eric Wojtanik, senior, Eden.
Winners received staged readings of their plays in Tyler Hall’s lab theatre at SUNY Oswego.
During the readings, student actors for each role read from scripts with direction from another student.
Brad Korbesmeyer of English and creative writing, said there were about 25 entries. A committee of faculty and students judged the competition.
The “new Voices” program is one of the most prestigious that the upstate school runs each year.
