Students from the Marysville Ruby drama group are hard at work preparing two plays to perform for the local community.

The productions will be presented at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18 and Saturday, Nov. 19 at Tolles Career & Technical Center, 7877 U.S. Route 42, Plain City. Admission is free. A freewill donation and bake sale will be available to offset production costs.

The older cast, with students ranging in age from 12-18 years old, will present “Much Ado about Coconuts.” Everything in this laid-back tropical paradise is turned upside down when a business woman inquires about opening a shoe store in El Cansado. Now there’s a bigger problem. There’s absolutely no market for shoes in this remote tropical setting. You won’t be disappointed with this hysterical show. “Much Ado about Coconuts” is presented and directed by Colleen Scott.

The younger cast, with students ranging from ages 3-11 years old, will perform “Not Your Average Joe,” a spin-off of Biblical Joseph account. A 1959 island diner is under duress after a hurricane hits and family comes calling. Enjoy leather jackets, poodle skirts, and surf boards in this retold classic account brought to life. Tina Castle is the junior cast director.

The Home on the Rock Ruby Enrichment Program is comprised of home-schooled students of all ages. Each fall the students perform two plays that showcase their talents while offering family-friendly entertainment to the local community. This year, they are celebrating their 10-year anniversary of community drama.
