What has ears but cannot hear? A field of corn! Announcing the 14th year of Hoo Haw, an excellent live music performance with mediocre comedy. This familiar, fun-loving cast has been bringing in a full-house for 15 years now. The Columbian has maintained a strict cleaning regimen, has social distancing built into the online seating and we're dying to break a leg! There won’t be a full house but tickets are sure to sell out and the audience is sure to roar. Veteran actor and director Troy Hemphill heads the annual favorite with new skits, songs, and knee-slappers.?

There are multiple layers of involvement within the sport: player, manager/coach, umpire, scorekeeper or voracious fan. This exhibition contends with how each facet of the game is broken down into math and science.
