GRCC Players

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.

Fall Mainstage Production

Grand Concourse by Heidi Schreck

November 9 - November 11, 2023

Having dedicated her life to religious service, Shelley runs a Bronx soup kitchen with unsentimental efficiency, but lately her heart’s not quite in it. Her brisk nature masks an unsettling fear that her efforts are meaningless. 

Lab Theater Production

Macbitches by Sophie McIntosh

January 10 - January 13, 2024

When freshmen acting major Hailey unexpectedly scores the coveted role of Lady Macbeth, her upperclassman rivals immediately invite her over to "celebrate." As the Fireball and Svedka flow, the young women interrogate their own ambitions as well as power structures that have shaped their education - and when the night spirals into violent shocking acts of betrayal, they come to learn that what's done cannot be undone.

Winter Mainstage Production

Incorruptible: A Dark Comedy About the Dark Ages by Michael Hollinger

April 11 - April 13, 2024

Welcome to Priseaux, France, c. 1250 A.D.: The river flooded again last week. The chandler’s shop just burned to the ground. Nobody’s heard of the wheelbarrow yet. And Saint Foy, the patron of the local monastery, hasn’t worked a miracle in thirteen years. In other words, the Dark Ages still look pretty dark. All eyes turn to the Pope, whose promised visit will surely encourage other pilgrims to make the trek and restore the abbey to its former glory. That is, until a rival church claims to possess the relics of Saint Foy—and “their” bones are working miracles. All seems lost until the destitute monks take a lesson from a larcenous one-eyed minstral, who teaches them an outrageous new way to pay old debts.
