GC comedy explores love and laughter

MILLEDGEVILLE — Four student actors from the Georgia College Department of Theatre are tackling the tangled world of love, laughter and lifelong relationships — just in time to capture the spirit of Valentine’s Day.

The cast is performing one of the funniest musical comedies ever to play off-Broadway — “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” — for students, Homecoming alumni, parents, belated Valentine’s Day couples and arts lovers from nearby communities.

The play — directed by Amy Pinney with musical direction by Wendy Mullen — will run through Feb. 24 in the 1,000-seat Russell Hall auditorium on GC’s historic main campus in downtown Milledgeville. Performances through Saturday are at 8 p.m. and the Sunday matinee starts at 2 p.m.

The play also hits the highway as the department’s first traveling troupe — taking the play up U.S. 441 to Eatonton’s 500-seat Plaza Arts Center Theater at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 1. The production is being staged in cooperation with the Eatonton-Putnam County Arts Foundation.

“This is the first time one of our main-stage productions has traveled in Georgia,” says Artistic Director and Chair of Theatre Karen Berman. “We hope this establishes a long-term partnership between the GC Department of Theatre and the Eatonton Plaza Arts Center.”

“We’re reaching out to arts lovers throughout Middle Georgia to come see Atlanta-quality theater without spending half the night driving on I-20,” says Pinney. “They can come to Milledgeville and see it on campus or visit the great facility in Eatonton.”

Pinney and Mullen have been rehearsing the cast six days a week for eight weeks.

“This play is the perfect date night or girls’ night out,” Pinney says. “It’s just laugh-out-loud funny and full of connections, relationships and heartwarming moments.” 

The cast members are: senior Erin Borain and sophomores Zack Bradford, Hayley Koger and Mitchell Moore. Borain and Bradford recently attended a Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival workshop in Albany, Ga. GC’s production of “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” will be entered in the festival’s national competition.
