Auditions for the next MMCC Theatre production, “Dilemmas with Dinner” by Robin Roberts, will be held from 3-6 p.m. on Jan. 8 in the MMCC Auditorium on the Harrison Campus. Students and community members are encouraged to audition and participate either on stage or behind the scenes.
The play is a farce about a junior executive, Brooke, who invites her boss and his wife over for dinner in the hopes of securing a promotion. A caterer rushes in and out of the kitchen in response to timers and madly attempts to set the table.
Brooke’s husband comes home with a strained back and is followed in short order by a fired, extremely inept, employee who is roped into helping. That is, if you can call what he does “help.” While frantically getting ready, Brooke and her husband discover that the hired help is coincidentally the boss’ ex-daughter-in-law.
It seems like nothing more could go wrong, but it does, in this fast-paced and hilarious farce.
Rehearsals for the production will be held from 3-6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Performances will be April 9, 11, 16 and 18-20. For more information, contact Dawn Alberts at (989) 386-6622 or visit their website at midmich.edu/theatre.
