Angry Donkey in Michigantown under new ownership

Keltie Sullivan Domina and her husband Joe have formed Keltie and Company LLC and assumed ownership of the Angry Donkey restaurant and pub at 230 Main St. in Michigantown, according to the Clinton County Chamber of Commerce.

The couple plan to assemble and train their team in time for an early July opening.

The new owners succeed Troy and Stacy Dunn, who founded The Angry Donkey by renovating a century-old building to be a pub and eatery along with a space for special events.

After working in the hospitality industry for more than 70 years combined, the husband and wife are finally working together. They bring to the enterprise a firm foundation and experience in hospitality and are eager to showcase their Hoosier inspired cuisine.

The couple have both been recognized for their leadership in business, the culinary arts and humanitarianism. They also bring a sense of community, strong work ethic and the enthusiasm and skill to get it done, the Chamber reports.

Red Barn will open season June 13

The Red Barn Summer Theatre will open its 50th Anniversary season with “No Sex Please, We’re British.” The farce, written by Alistair Food and Anthony Marriott. 

The play begins with a young bride’s error when placing a mail order for Scandinavian glassware. What she receives is Scandinavian pornography – which the audience hears about but never sees.

The plot revolves around the different characters’ reactions to the scandalous books, films, pictures and even people who arrive as a result of the misguided order.
