GBN Theater and Covid-19

We here at Glenbard North place a strong value on the health and safety of everyone involved with our productions. This includes our audience, adult staff, and most importantly, our student actors and technicians. During these trying times, we will be looking into alternate dates, production methods, and viewing formats whenever available. Times are tough for us in the theatre community, and we may need to cancel our performances and rehearsals due to circumstances in our community. In the event that a cancelation occurs, we will be forthcoming in our communications and ready to answer any questions that may arise. Glenbard North Theatre thanks you for your anticipated understanding and support.

MEDEA. A sketch co-authored by Durang and Wendy Wasserstein. Medea and her chorus of 3 women try to figure out if it’s appropriate to kill your children to punish your husband. Jason shows up; so does a messenger with news of Lady Teazle, and a Deus ex Machina comes down from the sky to cheer everybody up.


The ACTORS NIGHTMARE. A short comic play by Christopher Durang. It involves an accountant named George Spelvin, who is mistaken for an actor's understudy and forced to perform in a play for which he doesn't know any of the lines.


FOR WHOM THE SOUTHERN BELLE TOLLS. In this parody of THE GLASS MENAGERIE, the fading Southern belle, Amanda, tries to prepare her hyper-sensitive, hypochondriacal son, Lawrence, for “the feminine caller.” Terrified of people, Lawrence plays with his collection of glass cocktail stirrers. Ginny, the feminine caller, is hard of hearing and overbearingly friendly. Brother Tom wants to go to the movies, where he keeps meeting sailors who need to be put up in his room. Amanda tries to face everything with “charm and vivacity,” but sometimes she just wants to hit somebody.
