Tuesday. It’s not that

Tuesday. It’s not that he objects to the modern, lighter stuff. For that matter, he’s put “Harvey” on tap for 8 p. m. Friday in the Walnut Hills auditorium. And, well . . . “Harvey,” as anyone knows, is as contemporary as the psychiatrist’s couch. “We have one classical play, and one non-classic every year,” noted Mr. Gregory, in the softly modulated tones of the English, speech and dramatics teacher. “Harvey” is done by juniors. But the fall play at Walnut Hills Is mostly a senior production. Shakespeare’s been his classical favorite. He can rip off such titles as “Twelfth Night,” “As You Like It,” and “Much Ado About Nothing,” in the repertoire of plays at Walnut Hills the last 10 or 15 years. “BUT WE do other classics too,” observed Mr. Gregory, who joined the Walnut Hills faculty in 1930. “For example, we’ve done George Bernard Shaw’s ‘St. Joan.’ “ And he’s quite certain Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town.” which he revives every few years, ranks as a classic. For all their entertainment value, plays often perform a life-shaping purpose for their performers, Mr. Gregory said. “I have known youngsters who have been problem people before they had parts in plays,” he recalled. “They simply were having no fun here as students. Then comes the parts that change their whole lives.” He also directs plays at Cincinnati Country Day School. 46/Penn Magazine/November 2017 Wayne and Marjorie Gregory And for seven years he directed summer stock productions at a Culver, Ind., theater no longer operating. He also handled box office chores for University of Cincinnati’s “Musickaravan” at Daytona Beach, Fla. In 1964. And last summer he was treasurer for the Traverse City, Mich. Cherry County Playhouse box office. “I’ve never done any acting, except in a small way in college,” noted Mr. Gregory. But if he’s never been an actor, like the successful football coach who never played he’s known how to pick ‘em. “I look over my students in the 10th grade,” Mr. Gregory confided, “and from the talent I sense, I plan the plays.” I was blessed to have two wonderful parents, Wayne L. and Marjorie M. Gregory, who loved me without exception or question. When my mom died at age 97 in 2013, I found the vignettes among the boxes of papers and photos that I inherited. I was overjoyed to see my dad’s manuscript after all those years, and I vowed to publish it. Finally, three years later, I’m ready to do so. Without further ado, I am proud to share with the world my father’s vignettes, From a Member of the Audience. Chuck Gregory, June 15, 2016 [...

Five years later, in the spring of 1918, I first saw Maude Adams in A KISS FOR CINDERELLA. This was also in Peoria, at the Orpheum Theatre. Our regular theater, the Majestic, was being renovated and the roads shows were given in what was usuall considered a vaudevill theatre. — Wayne Gregory, From A Member of the Audience

GUESTS OF THE NATION GOTN tells the tale of a 9/11 Truth activist on his way home from a conference who has fallen asleep in an airport terminal and is confronted by the FBI. I wanted to do Guests Of The Nation in an attempt to show what really happened on Sept. 11, 2001, in a way that had not yet been done. I hoped that the artists and I could use our creativity to get behind the scenes, albeit in our imagination, really show it. I think we might have done something like that in a few of the images, but not most. I am always amazed at the great work done by the artists involved in my book projects. I must thank Michael Paul Miller and Allison M. Healy for the inside artwork, and Russell Brutsche for the cover art. I no longer believe that planes were used however. I think the deception goes much deeper than that. GOTN tells the tale of a 9/11 Truth activist on his way home from a conference who has fallen asleep in an airport terminal and is confronted by the FBI, taken to a back room and questioned. He is able to tell them exactly what happened because he was in on the planning. In this version these FBI agents are the heroes. “It was an interesting day.” “Looks like I hit the Trifecta.” “That’s one bad pilot.” “Today we had our Pearl Harbor.” —George W. Bush Boom.
