Public invited to share their mentor story
Cranbrook Community Theatre’s production of Mitch Albom’s Tuesdays with Morrie, written by Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom, will immerse audiences into an impactful story about how one person, Morrie played by Michael Grossman, transforms the life of another Mitch, played by Landon Elliott.
A mentor is an experienced and trusted guide, an advisor, a confidant, or one who inspires another. “This show is about Mitch Albom, a business-minded person,” explained Elliott. “Becoming real and connectable all because of his professor Morrie Shwartz.”
“Mitch comes out of his head and into his heart,” added director Stephanie Kress. “As a team, we thought about all the important messages in the story and how to relay those messages.”
The public is invited to enter the show’s ticket giveaway contest by submitting their own inspirational story to [email protected] about a mentor that has made an impact on their life. The winner will be announced on social media on Friday, April 29. Entrants are asked to include their name and phone number.
Also inspiring is the fact that Cranbrook Community Theatre (CCT), along with the show’s producer Amy Penney, are offering a half-capacity-night on Wednesday, May 11, limiting the occupancy of the Stage Door to just 40 people.
While masks and vaccination passports are no longer required to attend indoor events, CCT encourages theatre goers to continue wearing masks if it makes them feel more comfortable in their small auditorium.
