Ways to Connect

Deathtrap is a dark comedy coming to the Reif Center in Grand Rapids.  Auditions are tonight, tomorrow night and Saturday morning… We spoke with director Steve Jaeger about the play, what he’s looking for in terms of actors (5 actors – 1 mature female, 1 female aged mid 20s-mid 50s, 1 younger male – early to mid 20s, and 2 mature males), what auditions are like. Everyone is welcome to audition, with or without acting experience!

Steve also tells us about the excitement and thrill of directing and being in theater that keeps him coming back for more.   

"We're all about communication, compassion, and connection...it's putting the value of the other individual and the relationship that we have with them at the center. It's more so about building community- building a sense of trust, honoring another person and their good intentions even when conflict may arise.

"There's 29 best practices. They fall under five categories... building and lighting, land use, things of that nature...it keeps cities accountable...it's just a good program that doesn't cost anything to join" - Joel Anastasio on Green Step Cities 

The Bonfire Chamber Music Festival has been bringing the heat of chamber music to venues all over Grand Rapids, MN this week.  We spoke about it on the morning show and had a blast! The concerts continue tonight and tomorrow night in Grand Rapids at the Reif Center!   

"Music is the only thing that makes me feel better...if you learn how to play the ukulele or the keyboard, you can have that for the rest of your life." - Mark Munson
