Footlight Players present ‘ Here on the Flight Path ’

By Jen Jones
COSHOCTON - “ Funny .” “ Hilarious .” “ True to life .” These are just a few of the words the actors from “ Here on the Flight Path ” used to describe the play .
Director Susan Metz Guthrie said she saw a 30 minute excerpt from the Norm Foster play and really fell in love with it . “ It ’ s funny , smart , and clever .” She said she was familiar with Foster ’ s work and ordered the script soon after seeing the short piece .

The entire show takes place on one set – on the balconies of adjoining apartments . Wherley plays John , a writer , who meets three different women as they each move into the apartment next to his .
Wherley said , “ I swear Norm Foster read my diary – this character is me .” Wherley also said this play is nerve wracking and exhausting to him as his character never leaves the stage . “ It ’ s a real challenge .”
Baumgardner said being on stage with just Wherley is fun . “ I really enjoy working one on one with him . These characters are likeable , flawed humans .”
Aggas plays Angel , an aspiring singer , who moves to the big city to pursue her singing career . “ The part is funny and I like playing funny roles . It ’ s been a challenge to learn my lines and cues . There isn ’ t a chance to

COSHOCTON - Guitar duo Willie Arnold and Ed Zinkon will be kicking off the 2018 / 19 Rent Party season Oct . 5 , 7:30 – 9 p . m . with a great mix of classic folk and blues and just enough funk to add a little edge .
Willie and Ed have been playing music together here in Coshocton County for almost 40 years , which is to say not long after they began wearing long pants , which means in their early teens ( if you ' re not old enough to understand this expression ). In addition to playing as a guitar duo , they perform together in the rockabilly band The Woodrose .
Ed is a member of Big Fat Dog Blues Band and has recorded two albums with them .
You can expect to be well entertained by this duo while sharing drinks and snacks with friends inside our historic 1836 Greek Revival mansion .

All donations go towards the upkeep of this great estate . Call or email Donovan , event coordinator at 740-622-0326 or office @ pomerenearts . org .

BOOTH : Old Kodak photo booth re-purposed

“ My grandpa said , you know what would be a great idea ? Make it into a pumpkin to draw attention ,” said H a t fi e l d .
The former photo booth is made of fiberglass and is made up of four pieces bolted together . It is approximately 12 feet wide , 12 feet high , and 18 feet long . When William Albert Excavating took it down from the plaza , a worker decided to take it home , reassemble it , and use it as a goat shed . Hatfield ’ s grandfather , Bob Johnson , knew the worker and bought it from him . It stood on his property

for many years as a sanding shed for his woodshop . He gave it to his granddaughter for her FFA project .
With the help of her grandfather , her mom and dad , and her sister and brother-in-law , the photo booth was transformed overnight from a sanding shed to a pumpkin . There are 150 pumpkins for sale and range from minis to 80 lbs . Hatfield also has a 101 lbs . pumpkin that she will be entering into the fair this year .
