Its 1922 and the height of the Jazz Age, as young Millie Dillmount hits New York City with no money but big dreams to find a wealthy husband. Filled with flappers, dashing leading men and a madcap villainess, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a musical suitable for family entertainment.

MillieFINAL“We frequently offer productions at Rabbit Run featuring dance, but rarely at this level.  The hours that have gone into the choreography for this production have been grueling for the cast, but exciting in the final outcome.”

Playing the role of Millie is Stephanie Harden.  Harden has performed at several theaters in the area including The Beck Center for the Arts, Lakeland Civic Theatre and Rabbit Run Theater.  She has also performed with the Cleveland POPs Chorus.

Camp and Canoe Capital of Ohio

travelplanner2015lgLoudonville, Ohio – May 25, 2016 – Knowing the ins and outs of a vacation can be really helpful. This can range from what to pack to what are the local favorites. One of the best resources for this information would be the front desk and asking the server at the restaurant. One other way is to keep reading this and discover the secrets to visiting Mohican.

Since Mohican is the Camp & Canoe Capital of Ohio, it is normal to see everyone in casual dress. Shorts, tennis shoes, hiking boots, jeans and a t-shirt are pretty much a prerequisite. Even at the restaurants. There are plenty of places to eat inside or out. In fact the Mohican State Park Lodge’s, Bromfield’s Restaurant, Malabar Farm Restaurant and the Copper Mug Bar & Grille at Landoll’s Mohican Castle, offer deck and patio options when the weather permits. During the dinner hour, a fresh pair of jeans and a nice shirt is always a safe bet.

Jim South, Mohican Trails Club Member, gives a little known portion of the trails that are great for hiking, “Many places on the bike trail are good – from the Discovery Forest to the covered bridge is probably the best part of that trail.” In fact there are places off the horse trails that will hike past abandoned homesteads. One rule to remember, be courteous. If a horse or mountain biker is on the trail, please safely step off to the side and allow them to pass. For more information on hiking in Mohican, call the Mohican Visitors Bureau at 419-994-2519.

It may be a small town, but the library has a lot of activities that are free and open to the public. Tour The Cleo Redd Fisher Museum and Wolf Creek Grist Mill, one of the oldest working mills in Ohio. Visit the Memorial Shrine, where the names of Ohio Veterans, who sacrificed all they had, are handwritten in the books on display.
