  • Three event highlights
    1.) What is it? The CHS Players and the Chillicothe High School Drama Department will present its spring play, Arthur Miller's "All My Sons."
    2.) What's the play about? The protagonist is Joe Keller, a factory owner who may have allowed faulty airplane engine cylinders to be shipped to the U.S. Armed Forces. Because of those cracked cylinders, 21 pilots die. Keller's family believes he is innocent, but others do not. The ending has a strong moral lesson.
    3.) How much does it cost? General admission ticket prices have been reduced to $2 per person for a single viewing of the show. Veterans and their spouses attend for free.
