Who are GRCC Players?
GRCC Players is our name for all students who participate in GRCC productions, either onstage or behind the scenes. We in the theater department pride ourselves on offering stimulating theater that challenges and educates (and hopefully entertains) our students and audience. We offer college credit for participation in student productions (kind of like "pay to play", except you don't have to pay if you don't need the credit). Every fall and winter the faculty direct main stage productions, and every winter we select a few students to direct an evening of one act plays. Students have designed lighting, costuming, scenery, and sound for a number of our productions.
2021 - 2022 Season
Tigers Be Still … October 14-16, 2021
By Kim Rosenstock, Directed By Tom Kaechele
TIGERS BE STILL is a comedy that follows the misadventures of Sherry Wickman, a young woman who has recently earned her master’s degree in art therapy only to find herself moving back home with her family, sending out countless résumés and waiting for the job offer that never comes. Unemployed and overwhelmed, Sherry retreats to her childhood bed and remains there until an unexpected employment opportunity gives her a renewed sense of purpose and hope. Now if only her mother would come downstairs, her sister would get off the couch, her very first therapy patient would do just one of his take-home assignments, her new boss would leave his gun at home, and someone would catch the tiger that escaped from the local zoo, everything would be just perfect.
