GSC play has successful opening night
Thu Feb 13, 2020

Wednesday, February 12 was the opening night for GSC’s production of "Till Death Do Us Part," written by Dr. Marjorie Stewart and directed by Professor Dennis Wemm. "Till Death Do Us Part" is a murder mystery set at a disastrous wedding. The cast includes a bridezilla, a moody groom, and a hateful wedding party that cannot seem to get along with one another.

Opening night seemed to be a hit with GSC students. Students had a chance to interact with characters in an attempt to find out who the murderer was after watching the majority of the drama unfold. Was it the bride, whose signature saying is “My day, my way?” Or maybe her mother, who can’t seem to get along with anyone besides her daughter?

As if things weren’t already bad enough with the tacky decorations and a venue deemed less than satisfactory by the bride and her mother, the murder victims, exes of the bride and groom, stole the show by getting engaged and then dying at the wedding.. But is there anyone who didn’t have a motive for killing these two people? Well, maybe the groom's father, an eccentric Vietnam vet who seems to be a little… spaced out.

The play will be performed again on Friday, February 14, when it will be open to the community. An alternate ending will be performed to prevent any spoilers from those who attended the Wednesday night production. This production will include a dinner and will require a ticket for admittance. Tickets can be purchased in the Foundation's office on campus. Tickets are $30 per person, $55 per couple, or $200 for a table of seven if available. The show, held in the Mollohan Ballroom, starts with a cocktail hour at 6:30 p.m.

The Friday night production of "Till Death Do Us Part" will also be the last production directed by  Professor Wemm, who will be retiring from his position as a professor of theatre and speech at the end of the semester. He has put on many plays throughout his time at GSC, and he will be dearly missed. Make sure you come out if you can and support Professor Wemm in his final play with us..
