Original Productions Theatre Marks Inaugural Opening With HOW I GOT PLUTO
Forty years later, feeling shades of joy, frustration, love, regret, the class of 1970 comes together for a bittersweet high school reunion. Baby Boomers still in love, those yearning for love, those scarred by high school trauma, and those shouldering current crises form a sometimes uneasy bond in How I Got Pluto written and directed by Columbus native Dave Morgan. This inaugural opening for Original Productions Theatre will be staged September 13 - 22, 2018, at the Abbey Theater of Dublin, 5600 Post Road, Dublin, OH 43017.
This two-act play contains some themes and language not suitable for younger teens.
Co-directed by Alyssa Ryan, the cast includes Ralph Edward Scott* (Scotty), Frank A. Barnhart* (Keith), Janetta Davis* (Deborah), Todd Covert (Harx), Linda Goodwin (Betsy), Catherine Cryan (Marilyn), Bill Hafner (Davey), Greg Hoffman (Doug), Ken Erney (Erik), Richard Skora (Bob), Susan Wismar (Jeannie), Tony Ludovico (Oz), Donovan Johnson (Jimmy), and Angela Palazzolo (Peggy).
