When the audience at the Madison

County Fair rodeo was asked to provide

10 volunteers to come into the arena, it

was then they were presented with the

task of wrestling a bull to the ground. All

10 gave it a shot, and some lasted longer

than others, but none as long as Reagan

Gross. Gross, a student (pictured above)

at Global Impact STEM Academy, gave

that bull his money’s worth. In the end

with a bit of coaching and encouragement,

Gross took the bull to the ground

and took home first place.

This fall, West Jefferson residents will vote on changes to the

village’s charter, the document that sets the rules by which the village

is governed.

Every five years, the mayor appoints a charter review committee

that is then confirmed by village council. The committee is tasked

with going through the

charter and recommending

changes if they decide any

are necessary.

After 24 meetings over

the past 4.5 months, the

2021 committee finalized

its recommendations on

June 30, and council adopted the recommendations on July 6. The

changes will appear on the Nov. 2 general election ballot. Voters

will decide on the changes as a bundle rather than vote on each

change individually.

The committee includes Karl Frybarger, David George, Jeff

Hockenbery, Susan Krumm, John Lepard, Mark Pelphrey and Herman

Stanley.

“We all worked together really, really well,” said Frybarger, who

has served on the review committee three times and chaired this

year’s group.

“We invited not only the general public to comment, we also invited

every department head in West Jefferson, plus council members

and the mayor. We allowed them to have the floor and voice

any concerns they have with the charter.”

All of the committee’s recommendations stemmed from the feedback

they received from village leaders.

The proposed changes are as follows:

• Missed Council Meetings—The charter permits village council

members to miss up to six regular meetings per calendar year. They

are not paid for those missed meetings.

The committee is proposing that council members could not miss

more than four regular meetings per year but would be paid for up

to four missed meetings.

“Council meets two times per month which is 24 times per year.

We felt it was excessive that they can miss six meetings which

amounts to 25 percent of their job,” Frybarger said.

• Removal of Council Members—The charter requires that any

council member who misses more than six regular meetings in a

calendar year be recommended for removal. There is an exception

for military service.

In addition to reducing the missed-meetings limit to four, the review

committee is recommending the rules include an exception for

serious health conditions. In both cases, the mayor would appoint

someone to temporarily fill the vacancy.

• Council Vacancies—The review committee determined the

charter is unclear when it comes to when an unexpired term for a

council seat should appear on the ballot and, therefore, how long a

person appointed to a vacancy serves.

They recommend an unexpired term, whether for a ward seat or

an at-large seat, appear on the next available general election bal-

Contact tracing questioned

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

Parents of Jefferson Local Schools students are

happy with the announcement of a return to more normalized

school operations this fall, but are not pleased

with the potential for contact tracing procedures.

Dozens of parents attended the July 12 Jefferson

Local Schools Board of Education meeting to express

frustration with contract tracing associated with

COVID-19 exposure, the vaccinated versus the unvaccinated,

and mental health problems associated with

children who cannot go to school.

In June, the board approved a plan for the 2021-22

school year, which follows guidelines established by the

Madison County Health Department for COVID-19 mitigation.

According to the health department, as of a June 2

post to their website, people who are fully vaccinated

against COVID-19 are not required to quarantine following

exposure to a confirmed or probable case that

tests positive for COVID-19 as long as they remain

symptom-free during the 14 days following exposure.

For unvaccinated individuals exposed to the virus in

the classroom or on the bus, as long as in-school protocols

are followed and they are not symptomatic, they may

break quarantine and continue to attend school in-person

and participate in sports or extracurricular activities.

However, if they are exposed to COVID-19 outside

the classroom or bus setting, students and staff may not

break or fracture quarantine to attend in-person school

or participate in sports/extracurriculars.

“I don’t approve of contact tracing and quarantine,”

www.mylondonlibrary.org for details.

said Elizabeth Kuebler, who also asked how the school

district determines if a student is vaccinated or unvaccinated.

Erica Fortune’s concern was contract tracing and

mandatory quarantine.

“I’m concerned the lifelong implications this will

have on our students,” Fortune told the board. “This

plan is destined to cause a major interruption. Your

plan creates friction between parents and educators.

There is no easy answer.”

Erica Bogner said over half the children in the school

system are at risk of food insecurity and if they are not

in school, they face the potential for going hungry.

“These kids need to be in school,” said Bogner. “(You

are) punishing kids who don’t get the vaccine. It’s about

what’s fair. The burden should be on the parents. If

your kid is sick, keep them home.”

District teacher and parent Brian Fortune said what

people are asking for is to not quarantine kids that are

not sick and felt contact tracing is going to hurt kids.

He noted an example of an entire class that was quarantined

because one child was ill.

“All we’re asking for is for contact tracing to be removed

from the plan,” said Fortune.

Fellow educator J.J. Simmons said there is no consistency

in contact tracing procedures throughout the

state and,when in use, the policy causes students to unnecessarily

miss opportunities.

Board President Melissa Adams said, “My position

is I do not agree with contact tracing and differentiating

between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated.”

See TRACING, page 3

lot, no matter if it’s a year in which that particular seat would normally

be up for election. This way, Frybarger said, the public would

get involved more quickly in filling the vacancy by popular vote.

• Restrictions on mayor hirings and appointments—The charter

does not permit the mayor to hire or appoint anyone who is an immediate

family member of an elected village official, department

head or assistant, or ranking officer of the police department. The

charter lists who is considered an immediate family member.

The review committee is suggesting that aunt, uncle, sister, and

significant other be added to the current list and that step-relative

be removed.

If approved, the new list would include: spouse or significant

other, parent, parent-in-law, aunt or uncle, son, son-in-law, daughter,

daughter-in-law, sister, sister-in-law, brother, brother-in-law,

maternal or paternal grandparents, grandson, first cousin, niece or

nephew.

• Economic Development—The committee recommends the creation

of an economic development and redevelopment department,

along with creation of a job title and job description for the department’s

director.

“West Jefferson is experiencing a ton of growth. We really decided

we needed a person who was dedicated just for that,” Frybarger

said.

The change would allow the public safety director, who currently

assists with some of the economic development duties, to focus more

on infrastructure. It would update the job title and duties of the

current position of building, zoning and planning director. That person

reports to the mayor and public service director. With the recommended

changes, the director of the new department would

report only to the mayor.

• Notice of meeting relocations—Currently, the village must advertise

changes in government meeting locations in a newspaper.

The proposed change would give the village additional options, including

posting such notices to the village website, on social media,

on physical and electronic message boards, and/or on the front door

of the water department.

Large field of candidates seek to fill Stivers’ seat

Aug. 3 primary includes

11 Republicans and two

Democrats seeking to

make it onto the Nov. 2

ballot for 15th District

By Rick Palsgrove

Managing Editor

A primary election will be held Aug. 3 to

select candidates to run for Ohio’s U.S. 15th

Congressional District seat.

The slate of candidates includes 11 Republicans

and two Democrats. The seat became

vacant when former U.S.

Congressman Steve Stivers, a Republican,

resigned on May 16 to serve as president

and CEO of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce.

The primary winners in their respective

parties will face off against each other

in the general election on Nov. 2.

The Republican candidates are: John

Adams, Mike Carey, Eric Clark, Thad Cooperrider,

Ruth Edmonds, Ron Hood, Thomas

Hwang, Stephanie Kunze, Jeff LaRe, Bob

Peterson, and Omar Tarazi.

The Democratic candidates are Greg

Betts and Allison Russo.

For general information on the candidates,

The Ohio 15th Congressional District includes

Clinton, Fairfield, Hocking, Madison,

Morgan, Perry, Pickaway, and Vinton counties

as well as parts of Athens, Fayette,

Franklin, and Ross counties.

Republicans

Franklin County Republican Party Executive

Committee Chairman Josh Jaffe said

Stivers endorsed State Representative Jeff

LaRe and the Franklin County Republican

Party endorsed State Senator Stephanie

Kunze.

Superintendent William Mullett said he

does not want to see healthy kids miss

school and that the board and administrators

need a little time to address the issue

of contact tracing.

Legal options, liability and the need to

inform the county health department in the

event of an exposure are all considerations

the board needs to discuss.

“We have to be responsible if we let kids

come to school,” said Mullett, who felt a decision

could be made in time for the next

board meeting in August. “If a majority

finds it acceptable, it would allow us to

change our plans. We have to equate the

mental health risk with the COVID risk. It’s

not easy. It’s a pretty complicated issue, but

I think we can start the school year without

Former President Donald Trump has endorsed

Carey.

“Stephanie Kunze has spent the past

decade building a foundation of trust in

Central Ohio through her good work in the

General Assembly and previously at the city

of Hilliard,” said Jaffe. “She has a reputation

as an effective legislator who is responsive

to constituents and who isn’t afraid to

roll up her sleeves and get to work on tough

issues. That’s exactly what we need in

Washington.”

Jaffe said keeping the district in Republican

hands is critical. He said Stivers was

often a voice of reason cutting through the

chaos in Washington and helping make sure

that the important business of government

wasn’t forgotten.

“That’s an ideal role for a Central Ohio

member of Congress to play, and Senator

Kunze is well-equipped to play it,” said

Jaffe. “Neither of the Democrats in this race

can say the same. When the Republicans

take back control of the House of Representatives,

the people of the 15th District will

be well served by a conservative rising star

like Stephanie Kunze representing their interests

instead of a Democrat who may very

well be handing their proxy vote over to

Nancy Pelosi.”

When asked what his party thinks are

the keys to winning this district, Jaffe said

that any time a long-serving member of

Congress like Stivers steps down, the

biggest challenge for new candidates is to

introduce themselves to the voters in the

district, which he said gives Kunze an advantage

“Her Senate district covers almost all of

the Franklin County portion of the 15th

Congressional District and Franklin has by

far the largest piece of the 15th by population,”

said Jaffe. “Some candidates will try

to make a big deal about endorsements and

wedge issue positions over the course of this

campaign, but what voters really want is

someone with the will to fight for them in

Washington and the experience to do so effectively.

Stephanie Kunze has the will and

the experience and voters know she does.”

quarantining kids.”

Mullett said if a person is exhibiting

symptoms of an illness they should stay

home and do what is best for the children

and the community. He also expressed concern

with the inconsistency of contact tracing

from county to county and expects the

school district to resolve the issue in a

timely manner.

Teachers’ contract

Teachers and the board recently agreed

on a three-year contact with the West Jefferson

Teachers Association.

“I just learned they ratified the agreement,”

said Mullett. “I think the sessions

went very smoothly. We were able to do it

without an attorney, so we saved a little

money.”

The race has attracted a large slate of Republicans

seeking the position.

“It’s no secret that the 15th District has

been solidly Republican since Steve Stivers

flipped it in 2010,” said Jaffe, who noted

(former) President Donald Trump carried

the district by about 15 points in both 2016

and 2020. “Any Democratic candidate is

going to have a hard time in a district like

that and it’s clear from the breadth of their

field this year that they know it. The last

time there was an open Congressional seat

in Central Ohio a few years ago there were

about a dozen Democratic candidates, this

time there are two. There are so many Republican

candidates running because they

believe a Republican is likely to win the

seat.”

Jaffe said turnout in an off-year special

election is unpredictable and the district

will be completely redrawn after this year.

“No one knows what the new district will

look like,” said Jaffe. “It’s important for Republicans

to take a long-term view and

make sure our candidate is someone who

can hold the district for our party in the

likely event that redistricting makes it more

competitive than it is right now.”

Democrats

According to Alex Baker, executive director

of the Franklin County Democratic

Party, Russo is the endorsed candidate by

the Franklin County Democratic Party.

“The FCDP Executive Committee voted

overwhelmingly to endorse State Representative

Russo because of her proven track

record as a candidate, as a legislator, and as

a Democrat,” said Baker. “She is an incredible

advocate fighting for Ohioans in the

Statehouse and we are looking forward to

the experience, dedication, and passion she

will bring to Congress. She is an exceptionally

qualified candidate with a doctoral degree

in health policy, a master’s degree in

public health epidemiology, and over 20

years of experience advising leaders and

policymakers on how to better provide quality,

affordable healthcare to seniors, women,

and veterans. As a mother and the wife of a

combat veteran, she has been fighting for

District Treasurer Mark Ingles said the

contract includes a 2.75 percent increase for

each of the first two years and then a 2 percent

increase in the third year. Health cost

shares for individuals and family plans remain

the same as last year during the first

year of the new contract and then go up $15

for an individual and $35 for a family for the

second and third year. Prescription plan

shares increase $5 for individuals and $10

for families. Dental and vision remain the

same with the district picking up the cost

for both plans.

Board member David Harper called the

negotiations a “great experience to go

through without all of the negative. This

was one of the best times I’ve had in building

relations and not discouraging others.”

Ohio’s military families and for all Ohioans’

access to healthcare from our Statehouse for

the last three years and she is prepared to

continue this fight at the federal level.”

While this district leans Republican,

Baker noted Democrat U.S. Senator Sherrod

Brown won the district in his 2018 Senate

race and Democrat Justice Jennifer

Brunner won this district in her 2020 Ohio

Supreme Court race.

“With the resignation of long-term incumbent

Congressman Stivers and a

crowded Republican primary, Representative

Russo will have the opportunity to really

talk to voters and get her message out,

putting her in a very strong position to flip

this seat.”

Baker said the key to the Democrats for

winning this district is organizing and communicating

with as many voters as possible

about the issues facing the district and the

experience and plans that Russo has to support

it.

“The short time frame and pushing for

high voter turnout will be added challenges,

but Representative Russo has an incredible

campaign team behind her with a plan to be

on the ground in as much of the district as

possible between now and Nov. 2,” said

Baker.

‘Fear Street’ proves to be fun throwback slasher

In 2015, hallowed ground

shook as xennials and millennials

learned of plans to develop

films based on R.L. Stine’s

“Fear Street” books.

“Will they adapt the cheerleader series first?” they

wondered. “Or will they go to the start of the first horror,

then build the universe from there?”

It didn’t matter so much, they collectively agreed, as

long as they could finally see this strange world brought

to life, thanks to the partnership between Chernin Entertainment

and 20th Century Fox.

In the years that followed, a team of writers and directors

making waves in the independent horror genre

were brought on board, and a cast of promising teen actors

and veteran character actors inked deals to animate

(or reanimate, in many cases) characters of yore.

As the development progressed, news started to

trickle out that the writing team (Phil Graziadei, Leigh

Janiak, and Kyle Killen) would not be doing straight

adaptations of Stine’s popular trilogies. Instead, they

would create a new world loosely based on the “Fear

Street” series that would serve as a tribute to the collection

and the slasher films of the era.

Though the shaking lessened, interest was still high.

Then, in 2020, just as the first of the three movies

was slated for release, the pandemic shuttered movie

theaters and put planned distributions on hold. Not

wanting to see their trilogy of terror shelved for the foreseeable

future, Chernin Entertainment pulled its distribution

and inked a deal with Netflix.

Several weeks ago, Netflix started to unveil snippets

of the “Fear Street” movies. The teasers began to generate

buzz. Not only did these films—which take place

during three specific years—look decent, they also were

going to be released over the span of three weeks in

July. A strange move perhaps, especially coming from

a binge-friendly service, but one that made sense given

their commitment to releasing a new film each week for

2021.

On July 9, “Fear Street Part I: 1994” made its debut

on the streaming platform. While it is a decent film true

to the spirit of the books and

entertainment released during

that time, it is weighed down

by the fact it serves primarily

as a setup for the rest of the

trilogy.

“Fear Street Part I: 1994”

often comes across as an overly

long pilot in a limited television

series rather than the first installment

of an epic thriller

with a trail of terror that spans

centuries. It tries to establish

the current timeframe while harkening back to others.

It makes for a frustrating view, but one with good intentions.

It begins where all of the action took place during

this time—at a mall. Teenaged Heather (Maya Hawke)

is finishing her shift at B. Dalton bookstore when she

begins to experience odd events. First, she hears scuttling

noises, then horror books begin to fly off the

shelves. Suitably creeped, she seeks safety at another

store where her friend works but finds a pool of blood.

She later meets her demise at the hands of a figure

wearing the face of a recently deceased friend.

In any other town, this murder would have received

plenty of attention from the media, police, and school

where Heather was a student. But this is Shadyside,

Ohio, the “Murder Capital of the United States.” The

less that is said or written about this crime, the better.

Just because the town would rather not dwell on the

trauma doesn’t mean they don’t acknowledge it. They

do schedule a candlelight vigil before an all-important

football game against their rivals at Sunnyvale, but

that brings out the fisticuffs.

After the altercation, some Sunnyvale students race

after the bus full of Shadyside athletes and band members.

Fed up with their threatening behavior, Deena

(Kiana Madeira) opens the emergency door to toss a

cooler of water at them, but this causes their vehicle to

crash into the woods. Feeling contrite—mostly because

her ex-girlfriend, Sam (Olivia Welch), was a passenger—

she gets the bus to pull over for assistance but the damage has been

done.

Though no one was harmed during this incident, the teens manage

to unearth the burial site of Sarah Fier, a town witch who is

said to have laid a curse on Shadyside before she was burned at the

stake in 1666.

Shortly after the incident, reanimated killers from the town’s

past begin to haunt Deena, Sam, and their friends, Kate (Julia Rehwald)

and Simon (Fred Hechinger). Though several others are on

the menu as well (basically anyone who gets in the way), the spirits

seem to be particularly angry with with this little group.

With no idea how to stop the spirits, the teens turn to Deena’s

outcast brother, Josh (Benjamin Flores Jr.) who is well versed in

Shadyside’s murderous past. With centuries worth of news clippings

on the town terrors at their disposal, they have to figure out

how they can stop the curse and the cycle of violence that has been

plaguing the town.

Due to the structure of trilogy series, the first installment often

feels like the weakest link, so it is hard to fully judge “Fear Street

Part I: 1994” until its companion films are seen. (“Part II: 1978

dropped on July 16, while “Part III: 1666” drops on July 23). But it

could have been more creative with how it set up the trilogy, rather

than rely on the method of low stakes, back-end action and slowroll

development.

Gripes aside, “Fear Street Part I: 1994” is a fun throwback

slasher that is entertaining enough to watch with its 90s style,

slang, and music. Though some viewers will likely be torn as to

whether they want to continue with this series, I think I’m going to

stick with it until the end.

Always there, doing the

hard work to put on a fair

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

Darrell Champer has always loved attending

the opening ceremonies at the

Madison County Fair.

Though short in duration and minimal in

pageantry, what made the event so enjoyable

to him was seeing the look of surprised

delight on the faces of the individuals who

were chosen to be recognized by the senior

fair board for their commitment to the operations

at the beloved fair.

“These were the people who were always

working behind the scenes,” he said. “They

were the people who were putting in hundreds

of volunteer hours to get this fair up

and running not just for the week, but for

all of the weeks that came before it.

“I always wanted to be around to see

them being honored because their efforts

meant the world to me and to so many others

who participate in and enjoy this junior

fair.”

He said he never disagreed with those

who were chosen for the honor, even when

he served on the Madison County Agricultural

Society’s board of directors. But one of

the two individuals selected to be recognized

at the 2021 Madison County Fair brought

forth a mixed bag of feelings for the resident

of Mt. Sterling.

The announcement for the award was

nearing and Champer, the past president of

the Ag Society, stood where he normally

does — off to the side but in view of the

crowd so he could catch a glimpse of the individuals

selected.

While extolling the virtues of this year’s

honorees, senior fair board secretary Judy

Gallimore turned to Champer and asked

him to come forward. She praised him for

his “tireless efforts” in organizing a fair in

the middle of a pandemic last year and for

his long-standing commitment to preserving

the mission of the fair and making it

“accessible for generations to come.”

She announced that not only was he

being recognized by the senior fair board,

but he was also being recognized by the

state for having been selected as a 2021

Friend of the Fair by the Ohio Fair Managers

Association.

Champer, who later said he was too surprised

to smile at the time, said that he was

appreciative of the recognition but questioned

whether he was the right person to

be honored.

“I’m not one who likes recognition or

awards,” he said. “I don’t receive those well.

“It’s definitely appreciated but there are

a lot of people who put in a lot of hard work

who could have been selected instead.”

Gallimore begged to differ.

Gallimore said ever since she met Champer

in the fourth grade, she has always

known him as someone who spoke of the importance

of the fair.

“It just meant so much to him,” she said.

Not only did he spend much of his childhood

participating in 4-H clubs and showing

swine, but he also instilled those values in

his family and continued with its promotion

when he put his hat in the ring to become a

member of the Ag Society’s board of directors

in 2014.

She said he has always been an inspirational

figure, but his efforts last year to

bring forth a partial junior fair during the

pandemic inspired her to nominate him for

state recognition.

“He was always on the phone talking to

health advisors and drafting protocols for

how our fair could be safely run,” Gallimore

said. “He was doing this for weeks and

months on end, and the rules were always

changing so he could always be re-writing

those drafts.”

Eventually, those safety plans were accepted

and the 2020 fair was able to operate.

“We probably wouldn’t have been able to

have a fair at all last year if it wasn’t for

Darrell,” said Gallimore.

She said that was why it was so important

for the senior fair board to recognize

him this year.

“He’s always been instrumental to the

fair,” she said, adding that his presence on

the sale committee helped bring a new

arena and community center to the fairgrounds,

“and that is why he is so deserving

of this award.”

While Champer may have disagreed

with his selection, he did agree with senior

fair board’s selection of Arlene Duffey as the

second honoree.

Unlike Champer, Duffey had little to no

experience in a 4-H club while growing up

in London, but nevertheless became its face

for those who were involved — or at least had

an interest in it.

In 1984, Duffey applied for an open position

as an office associate at the Madison

County OSU Extension despite knowing little

about extension programming and services.

After being selected for the position,

she quickly became acquainted with the

process and helped thousands of 4-H participants,

parents, advisors and volunteers

throughout her career.

Gallimore called Duffey “the office rock”

and praised her for her willingness to come

to the aid of others.

“She is always willing to help,” she said.

“If you had an issue, a question, or needed

to know something about 4-H, she was the

one you went to.”

Duffey, who retired on March 31, said

she was humbled by the recognition.

“I was not expecting this at all,” she said.

“I thought maybe my invitation (to attend

the opening ceremonies) was going to turn

into a retirement celebration so this was a

complete surprise — a really pleasant surprise.”

awards of recognition to Darrell Champer (middle) and Arlene Duffey (right) for their

long-standing commitment to the Madison County Fair during the fair’s opening ceremonies

on July 10. In addition to receiving recognition from the senior fair board, Duffey

received a day (July 10) named in her honor while Champer was celebrated for his selection

as the 2021 Friend of the Fair by the Ohio Fair Managers Association.

Olivia Rinesmith, the 2019 Madison County Junior Fair queen (left) and Frances Foos,

a 4-H educator with the Madison County OSU Extension Office, presented Duffey with a

quilt made by members of the county’s 4-H clubs.

Though Champer and Duffey may believe

they are undeserving of the recognition,

Gallimore said they represent

everything the board looks for in choosing a

recipient who embodies a dedication and

commitment to the fair.

“I think it is very important we continue

to honor these behind-the-scenes people,

these unsung heroes,” said Gallimore.

“There is a lot of work that goes into putting

on this fair each year and we have to recognize

those people like Darrell and Arlene

who are always there, doing the work in the

background.”

Enjoy live theatre at Plays in the Park

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Now in its third year, the PC Trinity

Theatre Co. has officially joined hands with

the village of Plain City to present Plays in

the Park. “My Legacy Robe,” the first of two

productions planned for this summer, is set

for July 23-24. Shows are at 7 p.m. at Pastime

Park. Admission is free.

Led by three 2018 Jonathan Alder High

School graduates, the PC Trinity Theatre

Co. strives to provide opportunities for

young actors and entertainment for the

community.

Danny Rodriguez Hijo is the project

leader, providing acting direction and handling

advertising and communication.

Grayson Abend, the music director, writes

music and conducts the orchestra when live

music is incorporated into a show. He also

helps with acting direction. Ryan Gutierrez

heads up set conception and construction

and all things technical.

“We’ve been friends since junior high and

high school and were in productions together,”

Rodriguez Hijo said. “After high

school, we wanted a way to work together

and provide the arts and experiences we

have fond remembrances of to the community.”

From their first play in 2019 to an original

parody musical last year to this year’s

play and variety show offerings, the trio has

put middle school, high school, and young

adult actors in the spotlight. The majority

of the participants come from Plain City.

Some have been members of the Jonathan

Alder Junior High drama club, a program

Rodriguez Hijo has headed up since 2014.

Some have performed in high school productions.

A handful are trying theater for the

first time.

The all-female cast of “My Legacy Robe”

features seven students in grades 5-8: Dani

Berger, Ella Harrell, Ally Oross, Avery

Oross, Leah Polsinelli, and Ella Polston.

Written by Tim Kelly and performed

since the 1950s, the play—a short one at 30

minutes long—is set backstage at a show

that’s about to premier on Broadway. Each

of the actresses is coping with the premier

in her own way. Some are successful veterans,

some aren’t, and some are brand new

to the experience.

“It’s about how they are co-existing and

how they are bringing each other up to take

on Broadway,” Rodriguez Hijo said.

Since auditions in mid-May, the cast has

been rehearsing twice a week at the park.

Rodriguez Hijo is happy with the progress.

“The material came more naturally to

them than I first expected. It’s been very

good to see how they have developed with

it,” he said.

Danny Rodriguez Hijo (center), project leader for the PC Trinity Theatre Co., works

with Leah Polsinelli and Dani Berger on a scene from “My Legacy Robe.” The show

is set for 7 p.m. July 23-24 at Pastime Park in Plain City.

Next up is the “COVID Cabaret,” a variety

show of sorts scheduled for 7 p.m. July

30-31, featuring middle school- and high

school-aged actors. Short plays and vocal

music performances are planned.

Rodriguez Hijo has written three original

plays for the show—“Frame of Mind” about

a man learning to cope with losing loved

ones; “Dysphoria” about a soul trying to

take care of themselves; and “Sweet Paralysis”

about two demons failing at making a

nightmare for a child.

Abend wrote and composed a vocal duet,

“Roads,” which Ellyse Tillyer and Millia

Runkle will perform. Abend will provide accompaniment.

Additionally, Brea West will

play guitar and sing “Fever” by Elvis Presley.

Others performing in “COVID Caberet”

are Jacob Cameron, Annalise Caouette, Ava

Riddlebaugh, Olivia Riddlebaugh, and

Vanora Vowell.

Theatre Co., call (614) 259-8120, find

Company), or follow them on Instagram
