Oregon Community Theatre will present Toledo favorite, M*A*S*H, Feb. 14, 15, 21, 22 at 8 p.m. and Feb. 16 at 3 p.m. in the Fassett Auditorium at 3025 Starr Ave., Oregon.

Set during the Korean War, M*A*S*H was written as a semi-autobiographic fiction by Robert Hooker and adapted by Tim Kelly. Hooker wrote the book based on his experiences as a surgeon in South Korea.

The comedic stage play, based on the book, movie and television show, has all the favorite characters from Hawkeye to Radar and more (no, there’s no Clinger), but , but it’s still sure to leave audience in stitches.

The OCT’s presentation promises to be a fun experience for the entire family as it is the G-rated version of the story.

Director Jeff Smith said that the biggest challenge doing this play is “trying to show the fast pace of a busy 1950s South Korean M*A*S*H camp with a large number of characters coming in and out of scenes throughout the entire show.” Smith added that the show features a cast of more than 30 people – the biggest cast ever for OCT's winter show.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors and students. For tickets call 419-691-1398. For more information, visit oregoncommunitytheatre.org.
