Get your Star Wars geek on with Sinclair Theatre’s hilarious production of All Childish Things opening April 5th through the 13th in Sinclair’s Black Box Theatre, building 2, of the downtown Dayton campus.

Written by Joseph Zettlemaier, it’s the story of 3 Star Wars enthusiasts who create a “can’t fail” plot to raid a toy warehouse for collectibles. One lives in his mom’s basement where the scheme is hatched amongst an amazing array of Star Wars collectibles and memorabilia. Another pressures the gang to include his girlfriend, who’s not quite into the fandom of “the force”.

Directed by Nelson Sheeley, the cast includes Anthony Dell’Aria, Joseph Herzog, Vincent Klosterman, Rachel Charles, Chase Niemitalo with special “appearances” by Christopher Goetz.

Performances are at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, April 5, 6, 12 & 13. There is one Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. on April 7th and a Thursday, 7 p.m. performance on April 11th. ASL performances are on Sunday and Thursday.

Limited general admission tickets cost $10 and are available online at: www.sinclair.edu/tickets.

Sinclair’s Black Box Theatre is located on the fourth floor of building 2 (401 West Fourth St.). Take the elevator to the third floor and follow the signs to the half flight of stairs leading up to the theatre. A chair lift is available for anyone who needs assistance on the stairs leading to the Black Box Theatre. Doors open 30 minutes before curtain and early arrival is requested as no one can be seated after the production begins.
