Man sues Dickinson theater after projectile from stage causes eye injury

By John Suayan | Mar 17, 2017

GALVESTON – A Dickinson man alleges that he sustained injuries two years ago while watching a play at a local theater.

According to a lawsuit filed Mar. 15 in the Galveston County 405th District Court, a projectile from the stage at Harbour Playhouse in Dickinson struck Charles Govan during a performance on Oct. 4, 2015.

Govan says that he and his wife were seated in the second row. The cast of the play set off some type of special effects explosive device which caused the plaintiff to get hit in the eye.

“The defendant knew this condition caused an unreasonable risk of harm to persons such as the plaintiff who would be sitting in front of the stage where the play was being performed,” recent court documents assert.

Govan consequently seeks unspecified monetary damages.

He is represented by attorney Tom Oxford of the law firm Waldman Smallwood, P.C. in Beaumont.
