Spring Play Offers Humor and Depth

Anatomy of Gray to be performed

Anatomy of Gray show poster The York College Drama Department will present the drama Anatomy of Gray February 23-26.

Director John Baker describes the play as a children’s story for adults. “It’s a deep and rich story…a drama with moments of laughter and a serious point,” says Baker. The play will touch on themes of science and religion that should challenge audience members and make them think. Baker says that the play is both emotionally powerful and very funny.

Anatomy of Gray is set in Indiana in the late 1800s. It deals with death, loss, love, and healing in a unique coming of age story. It was written by Jim Leonard, Jr., author of The Diviners, which York College presented in 2000.

Music plays an important role in the show, though Gray is not a musical, says Baker. Gospel music authentic to the time period performed by the cast serves to underscore dramatic moments in the show.

The cast includes York College students Drew Leonard, Jasmine Agee, Stephanie Studebaker, Royce Roberts, Brianna Bailey, Caleb Clark, Caleb Clark, Briana VanDeusen, Erin Florea, Jameson Trauger, Kyle Svehla, Ryan Nelson, Morgan Goracke, and Ali Wallgren.

Seniors and veterans of the York College stage Meagan Detlefs and Bethany Saylor will serve as assistant director and music director, respectively.

The production will run February 23-26 in Gurganus Hall (10th & Kiplinger), with performances on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. and a Sunday matinee at 2:00 p.m.

 Tickets are $6 adults/$4 seniors and students. Reservations can be made by calling the York College Box Office at 402-363-5641 or by email.
