MANSFIELD -- The Ohio State University at Mansfield Theatre announces two mainstage productions for spring semester. Taking place in Founders Auditorium located in Ovalwood Hall, The Healing Project and Antigone will be this spring’s lineup.

Presented in cooperation with the Ohio State Mansfield Office of Diversity and Inclusion, The Healing Project is written by Mansfield playwright, Tiger Bradley.

Bradley, a first administrator of New Community Temple and youth pastor for 20 years, has written several plays, including The Hurt and The Healed, to help people discover the root cause of their problems. The Hurt and The Healed continues its development with The Healing Project.

Performances for this first spring semester production are scheduled from Friday, Feb. 25 through Monday, Feb. 28.

The second spring performance, Antigone, is a timeless play about recognizing the dignity owed to every person – whether we agree with them or not. Written by Sophocles, this crisp abridgement and adaptation of the original Greek tragedy, based on a translation by R.C. Jebb, continues Ohio State Mansfield Theatre program’s recent effort to make rights-free, accessible versions of classical texts available to students and teachers everywhere. Performances take place Thursday, March 31 through Sunday, April 3.

Auditions for both The Healing Project and Antigone will take place at 6 p.m. on Jan. 18 and 19 in Founders Auditorium. There are multiple parts available, and members of the community are welcome to audition. Auditions consist of readings from the script.

For more information on auditions, performance times and ticket information, please visit mansfield.osu.edu/theatre or call 419-755-4045.
