‘The Grapes of Wrath’ in Poultney
Green Mountain College’s fall theater production is Frank Galati’s adaptation of John Steinbeck’s ‘The Grapes of Wrath.’ Performances will be held Thursday, November 14, through Saturday, November 16, at 7 p.m. in the college’s Ackley Theater.
This is a powerful ensemble piece, adapted by a member of the famed Chicago Steppenwolf Theatre Company. The play was performed on Broadway and won the 1990 Tony Award that year. The GMC show includes a live three-piece folk band onstage, led by music director Gus Bloch. The cast of 18 actors is primarily made up of GMC students, including Andrew Kohler as Tom Joad, Andrew Bullard as Jim Casy, Emmet Murray as Pa Joad and Maddie Mielke as Ma Joad. Admission for the general public is $10 per person.
