Outdoor plays coming to Clary Gardens

| July 20, 2021

Rogue Elephant Productions is excited to present two plays for the community.

The adult production is “Into the Woods” and features 13 cast members. It will be presented on Friday through Sunday, Aug. 6-8 and Thursday through Saturday, Aug. 12-14 at 7 p.m. at Clary Gardens. “I Wish” is the youth production and it will be presented at 5 p.m. Aug. 12-14. Sixteen youth make up the cast.

“This is the first year of our operation,” said Mark Kittel, president of Rogue Elephant Productions. “We just formed early in 2021. But I, my family, and our board members have been doing shows for several years, both here in Ohio and in upstate New York. Before forming the company, we had been exploring partnering with Clary Gardens in 2020 to bring live theater to their outdoor venue.”

Rogue Elephant was formed in March of 2021. They chose to do an outdoor performance hoping for the end of COVID restrictions. The youth production was added in April. “Anyone coming our second week can look forward to a double feature. We are already making plans for out next shows and member events for 2022.”

“We decided early on that while we would charge admission for the front row seats at the gardens, the bulk of the available tickets are free of charge and just require a reservation through our ticketing system. We want to ensure we don’t overcrowd the amphitheater.” The amphitheater has 42 front row seats that will cost $15 each.  All seats for the youth productions are free.

“We want to ensure that live theater is available and accessible to everyone in our community. Tickets are available through our website www.reptheaterohio.com.”
