Ashland University Theatre Schedules 2015-16 Season

Ashland University Theatre has scheduled its 2015-2016 season, which reflects on human connections through family, technology, romantic relationships and more.

From the heart-warming celebration of our nation’s pioneer women in the musical “Quilters” to our technologically obsessed world seen through the contemporary comedy “Dead Man's Cell Phone,” and concluding with Shakespeare's classic comedy about love, “A Midsummer Night's Dream” -- the season follows the words of Herman Melville: “We cannot live for ourselves alone.

The Ohio Development Services Agency announced that the city of Ashland was one of a handful of municipalities awarded a $300,000 downtown revitalization grant. The grant is a 1-to-1 match, meaning downtown building owners who apply for funding assistance and receive approval for their projects can use their portion of the grant to pay for half of their expenses. The building projects could include anything from updating areas to comply with building codes to fixing roofs or restoring facades.
