Student Theater Thrives on GRCC Campus

Spectrum Theater building photoGRCC Players, directed by Theater faculty member Tom Kaechele, will present the play, ‘Dead Man’s Cell Phone’, by Sarah Ruhl,  at 8 p.m. March 29 to 31 at GRCC’s Spectrum Theater, 160 Fountain St. NE.  GRCC students Jenna Bassett, Micah Dekens, Jasmine Piper, Caitlyn Tiszai, Veronica McClimans and David Dekens make up the cast, and Tatum Kovach serves as production stage manager.

Ruhl, a MacArthur Fellow and Pulitzer Prize finalist, has set her comedy in a quiet cafe — with an incessantly ringing cell phone — where a woman is forced to confront her assumptions about morality, redemption and technology.  Kaechele said the play presents unique challenges for the cast as well as the set and lighting designers.

In addition to the performances on March 29 to 31, the final dress rehearsal — at 8 p.m. March 28 — will also be open to the public; tickets will be available at the door.

We hope you’ll attend the play – and you may want to take a look at our Theater Subject Guide, too!
