OU-C hosting dinner event prior to upcoming theatrical performance

Theater patrons can dine with former Ohio University-Chillicothe actors during “Influence of the Stars: Past and Present” event at 6 p.m. on Dec. 6 in the Bennett Hall Patricia Scott Art Gallery. Diners can then attend the latest OU-C theater production, Sylvia, at 8 p.m. in the auditorium.

Former stars of the OU-C stage will be on hand to share their insights of the campus’ theater endeavors. Cost of the meal is $25 per person or $46 per couple, and reservations are due by Dec. 2 by contacting Joyce Atwood at atwoodj@ohio.edu or (740) 774-7732. The meal includes chicken breast, redskin potatoes, vegetable blend, salad, pie and coffee or iced tea.

Admission for the play is free as part of a “preview night” for the Friday night performance. The play, which was written by A.R. Gurney and was first staged in 1995 in Manhattan, involves Greg and Kate, a middle-aged couple who move to the city after 22 child-raising years in the suburbs, and the street-smart dog who turns their worlds upside-down.
