"Returning Champion" is the next LIVE read presented by Austin Conservatory's Script to Screen Team. This off-the-wall comedy is the story of what happens when a college freshman is booted out of school and has to move back home to his has-been game-show host and hostess parents. The only way out of answering relentless trivia questions and guessing which door breakfast is behind is to get his out-of-work parents back on the air.

“Returning Champion” is written by two TV industry pros. Michele Gendelman (writer for TV shows "Newhart" and "Facts of Life" and author of two books) has joined forces with Ursula Ziegler (writer for "Empty Nest," "Head of the Class," "Sister, Sister” and "Larroquette," among others) to create this unique look at TV colliding with real life. Both writers will be in attendance.

3001 S. Congress Ave
Austin, TX  78704

When: 4 p.m. Sunday, August 30
