‘Stuck at Home’ to debut at Olde Glory Theater


If 2020 wasn’t enough social distancing, Olde Glory Theater is set to present its upcoming show “Stuck at Home” June 19 – 22.

“Stuck at Home” is a comedy set in 2020, full of Zoom calls, virtual first dates and plenty of dad jokes.

“It's a humorous take on what happened during the pandemic and how a family handled being stuck at home together for an extended period of time,” said Megan Boggs, a member of the board of directors for Olde Glory Theater.

Boggs said the cast is looking forward to sharing this comedic production and hearing audience feedback.

“It's so important to have that audience and have that feedback of laughter that they (the cast) hear. And so I think they're really looking forward to that,” Boggs said. “I'm already trying to encourage them and tell them about things like ‘OK, you know you're gonna get a big laugh here, so the next person needs to pause a little bit before they come in with their next line.’”

Boggs said the cast had a great time getting to enjoy hilarious line delivery and wacky scenes, constantly hearing laughter throughout every practice. 

“One of the scenes has a super soaker in it that Ethan (Boggs) threatens his father with and that's just kind of a funny little exchange that we've all gotten a kick out of,” Boggs said. 

The cast will have four main characters, the father, played by Justin Baldinger, the mother, played by Angela Kaspar, the son, played by Ethan Boggs, and the daughter played by Emma Matulka.

Supporting the leads will be Dalton Mobley as Paul, the son’s friend, Sage Ruzicka as Ted, the daughter’s date, Mia Cobian as a news reporter, Mariya Corner as the grandma, Lucy Kahler as the family dog Muffins and Mya Boggs as the cat Piddles.

The doors open on Wednesday, June 19, and Thursday, June 20, at 6:30 p.m. for a 7 p.m. show. Audience members will be able to purchase concessions. Tickets will be $18 for adults and $12 for those under the age of 12.
