Live Theater Returns to Riverview

At 7 p.m. this Wednesday, Ms. Kammerlohr’s plays return to the RPAC stage.

Mutually Assured Destruction, written by Don Zolidis, displays ten different plays about brothers and sister relationships and the unique dynamics between siblings. The ten plays range through different time periods, from the 1920's until the present day.

If you have a sibling, you will relate to this play. As Ms. K explains, “Sibling bonds are unique, they’re unlike anything else in the world...that dynamic between siblings, and their ability to fight and still come back together because they’re bonded to each other. Siblings know you from your childhood up until the end of your journey."

The cast of this play has a wide variety of students, freshmen to seniors, with varying levels of experience. Along with some first year actors, the backstage crew is made up of only first year members of the acting club. The students in the play have worked diligently, spending over a hundred hours outside of school studying for their roles. That means long nights and weekends dedicating themselves to this play.

Since this is the first play back in front of a live audience, the cast is eagerly awaiting the stage. Ms. K would like the audience to know that “It is okay to laugh, but it’s not okay to be on your phone” during the performances.


Wednesday's opening night ticket prices will be pay what you can, as Ms. K wishes not to exclude people from the arts based on ability to pay. The Thursday and Friday ticket prices will be five dollars for the show.

If acting interests you, the spring show will be A Midsummer Night's Dream, written by Shakespeare, with auditions held after winter break.

Trust me Rams, this play is something you won't want to miss.
