‘All Together Now’ Fundraiser for Athens County Food Pantry

November 13, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Ohio Valley Summer Theater, a theater group founded in Athens in the early 1950s, is presenting its very own musical theater show titled “All Together Now” dedicated to songs from famous musical works. The two-day event will take place on November 12 & 13 at the ArtsWest facility on 132 W State St.

The event features songs from famous works such as Rent, Les Misérables, Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Hairspray and many other favorites. All Together Now is presented by a special arrangement with Music Theater International.
“We are beyond excited to be back on stage,” said OVST executive director Christopher Parsons. “This event is sure to an entertaining show for the Athens community to enjoy.”

Since 1951, OVST has been displaying their performances under the mission of providing a safe, educational and inclusive theatrical experience to as many as possible.

Naturally, Covid-19 put OVST’s production on hold for a while. OVST was recently fortunate enough to have the opportunity to celebrate their 70th anniversary with a performance of Clue that was just presented on Oct. 8.

In addition to the shows, the OVST is donating 100% of the proceeds from the events to the Athens County Food Pantry. The organization felt the need to give back to the community that it calls home. As many are aware, Athens County is the poorest county in the state of Ohio. It is important for this event to gain attention as it could greatly help a community that desperately needs it. Christopher Parsons and the crew at OVST seem fairly eager to assist the community in any way they can.

“The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted something that many of us already knew — food security is a serious issue in Appalachia,” said Christopher Parsons. “OVST wants to use the opportunity of staging All Together Now as a way of using local musical theater talent to raise money for an organization that helps feed so many people.”
