GRCC is taking everyone on a time-twisting adventure through 100 years of its history with its production of Open Door.
A collaboration between the theater and music departments, the script was written by retired English professor Walt Lockwood and James Schafer, coordinator of video broadcasting and distribution. The music department created the play’s original compositions.
The story centers on Jill, a GRCC freshman who stumbles upon a mysterious door. It’s a roller coaster ride through the people, music and events that made GRCC — and West Michigan — what it is today.
Performances of Open Door are 8 p.m. November 7 and 8 at the Spectrum Theater — and GRCC employees and students get the earliest opportunity to buy tickets! Tickets go on sale to the campus community on August 25 — prices are $25 for employees, $20 for GRCC retirees, and $15 for students with a valid student ID. A complimentary dessert reception will be held in the theater lobby following each performance.
A dinner theater package with the Heritage restaurant is available for the November 7 performance, and GRCC employees and students have the earliest opportunity for those tickets, too! That ticket cost — which includes both the dinner and the performance — is $45 (nonalcoholic drink only) or $50 (includes a glass of wine with your dinner choice). Two seating times, with 20 reservations each, will be offered: at 5:30 and 6 p.m. The menu includes Scotch Quail Eggs and Rosemary-Lemon Feta Cheese Crusted Pork Porterhouse. A special vegan menu of Mock Eel and Cauliflower Steak also is available.

Tickets for the production as well as the dinner theater package will go on sale to the public on September 8 — and they are expected to sell out.
