Huron Playhouse looks back in time with ‘Tintypes’

The Huron Playhouse returns this week to the days when ice cream socials and hoop skirts were giving way to automobiles, telephones and electricity with “Tintypes.” Featuring such popular tunes as “Meet Me in St. Louis,” “You’re a Grand Old Flag” and “Bill Bailey, Won’t You Please Come Home,” and characters representative of the time such as (left to right) Charlie (played by Matthew Bugay), Susannah (Modestina Fernandez), Theodore Roosevelt (Steve Copps), Emma Goldman (Nicole Hale) and Anna Held (Melissa Davis), the award-winning musical revue plays Tuesday-Saturday (July 18-22) at the McCormick School on Ohio Street. Call 419-433-4744 for tickets.

Next week’s production is the Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy “Harvey.” The story of mild-mannered Elwood P. Dowd and his invisible friend, the six-foot rabbit Harvey, will run July 25-29.
