Michael D. Graves (Dramaturg), currently a Theatre Studies graduate student at Illinois State University, is beyond excited to be involved with the Community Players stage! An avid fan of movies, random trivia, and board games, this Mississippi native has grown up around theatre his entire life predominantly on stage where he has been involved on stage as an actor in such roles as Colonel Mustard (Clue), Charlie Brown (You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown), William Barfee (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), Pseudolus (A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To the Forum), Monsignor O’Hara (Sister Act), Rufus Jeter (The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical), Drake/Ensemble (Annie), Oberon/Theseus (A Midsummer’s Night Dream), Ken Gorman (Rumors), Jesus (Godspell), and Audrey II (Little Shop of Horrors). Many thanks to this insanely talented cast and crew for the hours of joyous rehearsals and their continued support into the arts! Special thanks to, well, you know who you are! You mean more to him than you know.
