Jason Abbott, artistFrom an early age Jason Abbott loved to draw. Like any child who craves drawing, he grabbed whatever pencil or pen was available and drew on scrap paper what he imagined. But one day when he was a child, he went out to lunch with his family while on a cross country trip in Germany.
“I remember the floor–to–ceiling windows and looking out at the huge mountains. I was so fixated on that scene I didn’t even care about my chocolate milk,” Abbott laughed. “But I just kept staring at it, watching the light behind it. It moved me so powerfully.”

Thelma Stowell, GinaWoodring and Bob Strohmayer as Elwood P. Dowd in Harvey.Those who attended performances by The Persimmon Tree Players over years past know Bob Strohmayer. A staple of the group for nearly 20 years, always the actor and sometimes stage manager and long-time president of the group, Strohmayer is thinking about leaving the limelight and hanging up his hat for good. He has said in the past that every show would be his last but this time Strohmayer would like Harvey to be his exit from the stage. This was a role very near and dear to him and as memorable as all his years spent in community theater.
