Ebony Bobcat Network presents 'Radio Golf' at annual theater fundraiser in Cleveland

The Ohio University Ebony Bobcat Network (EBN) calls on OHIO alumni, faculty members and students to join them at the Ensemble Theatre in Cleveland Heights, Ohio for the 6th annual EBN Theater Fundraiser on Sunday, February 12. This year, the Cleveland chapter of the EBN will present August Wilson’s feature play “Radio Golf” in a one-day-only performance. A portion of the ticket sales will benefit the EBN Urban Scholars Scholarship Endowment Fund.

The EBN Theater Fundraiser serves to celebrate African American culture and history by showcasing a play with similar themes. This year’s event gives attendees the opportunity to network with fellow Bobcats at a theater owned by OHIO Division of Theater alum Celeste Cosentino, who graduated in 2001.

This year’s play, “Radio Golf,” was featured during the first-ever EBN Theater Fundraiser in 2012. The updated presentation will follow the story of one man’s quest to revive his childhood neighborhood and become the first African-American mayor of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The play is the last in Wilson’s 10-part series, “The Century Cycle.”

“Ohio University community members, alumni, and friends should support this pre-reception and play if they enjoy good theater,” said Kellea Tibbs, assistant director for campus relations. “Especially if they know that a portion of the proceeds will benefit current students at Ohio University through the Urban Scholars Scholarship Fund.

The event begins at 1 p.m. with a pre-performance reception at the theater. The show starts at 3 p.m., and tickets are $40. For more information or to reserve tickets, click here
