Come Blow Your Horn Sounds Happy Note as First Summer Theatre Play [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 7 July 1964
Come Blow Your Horn Sounds Happy Note as First Summer Theatre Play Come Blow Your Horn is an excellent refresher for a hot summer night. This opening production of the KSU Summer Theatre has snappy lines, humorous situations, and a better than average college cast. The play is at times suggestive, although not offensive, and those who like their summer entertainment light, should find the comedy at the E. Turner Stump Theatre their dish of fun. The play, which ran four days last week, will open again Wednesday and run through Saturday night at the air-conditioned theatre. Curtain time is 8:30 p.m. Essentially the recent comedy concerns two different brands of redemption:—the playboy is redeemed from his life of dissolution, while his younger brother frees himself from apron strings at home. If Come Blow Your Horn has any message, it is that every young man should have flung his fling before settling down to matrimony and job security. Most of the play's comic situations arise becaus...
