Jan. 3, 2020 GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The GRCC Players production of Nick Payne’s “Constellations” weaves romance into questions about relationships, choices and destiny.
Adjunct faculty member Carrie McNulty will direct the drama, which starts at 8 p.m. Jan. 9 to 11 in room 201 of the Spectrum Theater, 160 Fountain St. NE.
“Constellations” centers on an encounter between two characters, portrayed by GRCC students Yesenia Cotto and Anthony Snead.
McNulty said directing such a small cast is a unique experience.
“Having a two-person cast for ‘Constellations’ has been a wonderful experience all around,” she said. “We are able to truly focus and apply the skills these two actors have been learning in their acting classes. We are able to dive deeper into the material, and I am able to explore many possibilities with them to arrive at a really authentic final product. I am incredibly proud of both Anthony and Yesenia. They have worked incredibly hard, and I am thrilled to witness their progress.
“This is a unique story, and I know the audience is in for a treat!”
