The Hummingbird, will be presented on September 1st, 2nd and 3rd at the Kent Stage.  The play was written by local playwright, Scott C. Wilson. and is directed by retired Kent Roosevelt High School drama director Mary Ann Costa.  

Scott, a Kent native and Roosevelt HS alum,  is a graduate of John Carroll University, where he studied English and Classics. He went on to earn a Masterís Degree at Dartmouth College, specializing in Latin and Scottish poetry. He currently teaches English and Latin at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School in Manhattan.  

In his spare time, Scott writes plays and screenplays. Two of his one-act plays have been staged: Who Killed Mr. Blank? (Theodore Roosevelt High School, 1998; Trinity High School, 2004), and Another Night in the Alley (Kent State University, 2000). He looks forward to his first full-length stage play.  

Scott describes The Hummingbird as "part situational comedy, part tragedy." The play raises questions regarding community intervention for the homeless. It is fitting, then, that a portion of the proceeds from this production will be donated to the Mental Health and Recovery Board of Portage County.  

The Hummingbird will be preformed on September 1st, 2nd, and 3rd at the Kent Stage, 175 E. Main St in downtown Kent.  All performances begin at 8 pm.  Tickets are on sale now for $10 at McKay Bricker Gallery and Framing, Spinmore Records, and Woodsy's Music.  For more information call 330-677-5005.
