Available Light Theatre will present Females of Ohio Bodacious Arm Rasslin' this weekend. But are Joan of Arms, Bobbie Fosse-licious, Quadzilla and more characters or competitors?

“It's sports entertainment, like professional wrestling, with all the larger-than-life heroes and villains. Except it's arm wrestling, and it's all women,” said ALT Artistic Director Matt Slaybaugh, an admitted pro-wrestling fan. The outcomes are only semi-scripted and left to the discretion of the combatants, he said.

There's also the potential for dancing, push-ups and more, Slaybaugh said, in an event that is also a benefit for ALT and Ohio Women's Refuge.
