MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Two more former students are suing the Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis and its co-founder, John Clark Donahue, over alleged sexual abuse decades ago.

The two men, both 54, are identified only as “John Doe” in the lawsuits filed Tuesday.

The new plaintiffs join six others who have sued Children’s Theatre Company and former staffers since Dec. 1.

Donahue was charged in 1984 with molesting three boys. He served 10 months in jail.

A person answering the phone at Donahue’s home told the Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1LsfLoV ) that on his lawyer’s advice, Donahue will not speak to the press.

In a statement, the Children’s Theatre Company said it continues to “support the efforts of those who have been victims of sexual abuse to have the truth known and to see justice served.”
