Friends of the Theatre

Friends of the Theatre are a pillar of support for the theatre program at Ohio State Mansfield, providing funds to underwrite the costs of performance each season. Licensing fees for the content, costumes, lighting and sound upgrades are all part of the operating costs of the theater, and this year is no different.

The arts continue to be a vital component of our lives so this season’s virtual performances are being provided at no charge to allow continued access. Your continued support as a Friend of the Theatre supports this continuity and enables us to bring the arts into our audiences’ homes.

Comic Shorts
After the year we’ve had, we all need a laugh. These short comedies are written for a remote audience and will give us something to smile about.

Performances: Thursday, March 25 and Friday March 26 at 7:00 p.m.

We have multiple parts for all ages, genders, and character types. Shows will be cast as short-term, flexible projects in order to accommodate student and community artist schedules and the unusual lives we are all living these days. All rehearsals will take place via ZOOM.

Auditions consist of readings from the scripts. Prepared monologues are welcome but not required. Questions? - Joseph Fahey at or 419 755-4276.

Through show participation – onstage or backstage – students can earn up to three credit-hours of THR 4000 (Theatre Practicum) course credit.
