Set in the Renaissance, this toe tapping, hilariously clever musical-comedy tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two struggling playwrights trying to compete with rock star of the times, William Shakespeare for the hearts and minds of theatre-goers. After all, the play's the thing! Consulting with a local soothsayer, the Nick Bottom learns that the future of theater will be something called a musical, and sets out to produce the very first one. Hijinks and hilarity ensue. Performances run July 9th thru the 11th, 2021 at Hilliard Davidson High School, 5100 Davidson Rd., Hilliard, OH 43026.

by Jerri Shafer - Oct 9, 2019

Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she's an outcast who's bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she's at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie's just discovered she's got a special power, and if pushed too far, she's not afraid to use it… Performances are October 11th thru October 20th, 2019 at the Columbus Performing Arts Center, 549 Franklin Avenue, Columbus, OH 43215.

by Jerri Shafer - Jul 12, 2019

'Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek....' And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek. Performances July 12th thru the 14th at the Hilliard Darby Theatre in the Hilliard Darby High School, 4200 Leppert Rd., Hilliard, OH.
