Westerville, OH—The Otterbein Summer Theatre 2017 season presents “They’re Playing Our Song” at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 6; 2 p.m. on July 9, 14 and 16; and 8 p.m. on July 7-8, July 13-15, and July 20-22 in Riley Auditorium at the Battelle Fine Arts Center, 170 W. Park St. Tickets cost $33. Call 614-823-1109 or visit www.otterbein.edu/summertheatre.

“They’re Playing Our Song” is a terrific collaboration between playwright Neil Simon and composer Marvin Hamlisch. Set in the 1970s, “They’re Playing Our Song” is a funny, romantic show about a neurotic, established composer and his relationship with a quirky young lyricist. Creative genius, passionate personalities, and a strange sense of timing keep these two birds humming as they pen the next big hit ad find true love.
