For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the Kaskaskia College Theatre Guild will host a fall production open to the public in the Jane Knight Auditorium on the college’s main campus. Kaskaskia College students will take the stage to perform “Check Please and Check Please: Take 2” for three performances on November 19-21st.
“Check Please and Check Please: Take 2” by Jonathan Rand are one-act plays that show the struggles of dating, including when your date turns out to be a raging kleptomaniac, your grandmother's bridge partner, a foot-reading psychic, an extreme accountant, a mime, and even a pirate! The plays will be directed by KC Theater Professor David Quinn.
“In November of 2019, the KC Theatre Guild last performed in front of a live audience with The Revenge of the Space Pandas, or Binky Rudich and the Two-Speed Clock,” said Quinn. “After performing on videos for the last few semesters, we are anxious to get back in front of a live audience!”
The performances are Friday and Saturday, November 19 and 20, at 7:00 p.m. The third performance will be held on Sunday, November 21 at 2:00 p.m. All performances are free and open to the public.
The cast and crew of KC students include Dusk Donoho, Aden Hill, Michelle Barlow, Maximus Dsouza, Alexandria Twitchell, Bryce Stanley, Alyssa Lurkins, Zeke Muhammad, Emma Peper, Addy Gambill, Aidan Glasgow, Erin Wrzesinski, Kristin Bailey, and Jenny Barnes.
