Grand Rapids Community College’s Players will be presenting “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” by Sarah Ruhl March 29-31 at the Spectrum Theater.
This comedy is set in a quiet cafe where a dead man’s cell phone refuses to stop ringing until a nearby woman answers it and ends up getting pulled into the middle of that man’s life.
The play is directed by Tom Kaechele, Theater Program Director for the Spectrum Theater.
“The characters in this piece have a rather loopy or mysterious quality to them,” Kaechele said. “And that forces the actors to look beyond what they would see as ‘typical’ reactions to the situations, and instead find ways to react more imaginatively.”
All of the actors in “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” are GRCC students. The actors include Jenna Bassett, Micah Dekens, Jasmine Piper, Caitlyn Tiszai, Veronica McClimans and David Dekens. Tatum Kovach is the production stage manager.
The show will start at 8 p.m. and the dress rehearsal will be open to the public on March 28.
Tickets are $5 for GRCC Students, $8 for other area students and for GRCC faculty and staff, and $12 for the general public. To get tickets and for more information call the Box Office at (616) 234-3946 or visit the GRCC Theater web page here.
