Cincinnati, OH- As spring begins to arrive, the Walnut Hills High School Theatre Department presents an original, nature-inspired devised play: TO THE MEADOW AND BACK AGAIN.

TO THE MEADOW AND BACK AGAIN is being produced and filmed in the Walnut Hills High School Rick Steiner Black Box Theater, and the recording will be available to the public for On Demand Streaming.  Actors and crew are masked, and are following strict COVID-19 guidelines while filming.

“This is an original show composed both from established text and original writing from our cast of actors,” says director Helen Raymond-Goers.  “We’ve pieced together all of these writings into characters that all share a common bond or theme to make a unique storytelling experience that is different from plays you may have seen before.”

On Demand Streaming begins April 22 and runs through May 1.  Streaming Passes are $10 for an individual and $20 for a family. No live audience will be permitted for performances.  Passes can be purchased through the Walnut Hills High School Theatre Department Website: https://sites.google.com/view/whhstheatredepartment/tickets.

This production  and the entire WHHS Theatre 2020-2021 season is graciously sponsored by the Walnut Hills High School Class of 1964 Performing Arts Fund.
