ABOUT THE REVOLUTIONISTS: Four beautiful, bad-a** women lose their heads in this irreverent comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror.  Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back extremist insanity in 1793 Paris.  This grand comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sister – and how we go about changing the world.

Auditioning for a Show…

Is there a place for me?

Grand Rapids Civic Theatre is a community theatre, which means that all the actors who perform on our stage are a collection of individuals from West Michigan who have a talent and interest in theatre arts. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned actor, you are welcome to audition at Civic! It’s not uncommon for newcomers to be the star of the show, or a part of the ensemble! On average, approximately 40% of Civic’s volunteer performers are new, either to our community or our theatre. GRCT welcomes all genders and non-conforming individuals, all races and ethnicities, and artists of all ages. With each season offering a variety of musicals and plays, we are excited to offer a little something for everyone.
