Two Stow residents will perform in the provocative play Corpus Christi written by Terrance McNally and produced by Akron’s Heads Up Productions.
The play, which will be performed April 21 through April 23 at First Grace United Church of Christ in Akron, is a contemporary retelling of the Christian gospels. Set in modern-day Texas, the play has created controversy everywhere it has been performed because of its inclusion of homosexuality as part of the Christian tradition.
Stow resident TJ Jozsa is one of the creators of Heads Up Productions and is part of the play’s ensemble. After graduating from, he went on to perform in productions like You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, A Christmas Carol, The Laramie Project, Eurydice, and 1,000 Hills. He has also produced For Colored Girls ... and A Woman Called Truth. Jozsa is a political science and pre-law major at the University of Mount Union.
Nici Romo, also a Stow resident, has performed in The Laramie Project and 1,000 Hills for Heads Up Productions and was in Working for the Stow Players and Zombie Prom for Aurora Community Theater. She is the mother of three children and is a theater major at The University of Akron. She will also be part of the ensemble.
