… Kaechele, who also serves as Theater Program Director for Grand Rapids Community College, is no stranger to Circle Theatre. He has been involved with the company since the early ’80s, when he started out acting in Circle Theatre shows. He estimates that Spamalot is the 16th production he has directed for Circle Theatre since 2002.
