This January, the 300-seat theater presents Sarah Ruhl's witty and quirky investigation into our society's love affair with cellular phones, as well as its painfully extended divorce from telegrams. After the man at the next table dies, plucky ingénue Jean decides to answer his ringing phone, initiating an artistic analysis of the mysteries and interconnections between life, death, reality, and dreams. An intimate community theater that explores the complexities and absurdities of human nature with its annual six-to-seven-play season, First Presbyterian aims to enrich and entertain its patrons. Call the box office at least 48 hours in advance to reserve your tickets or send your monogrammed carrier pigeon to announce your arrival.
Though this year's production of Dead Man's Cell Phone has yet to receive many online reviews, past events at the First Presbyterian Theater have been mentioned on FortWayne.com and in The Journal Gazette.
First Presbyterian Theater
The theater is part of the artistic arm of the First Presbyterian Church, and auditions for the troupe's roughly six annual plays are open to anyone. An art gallery doubles as the lobby for this 300-seat auditorium, which regularly hosts well-known ensembles, including past acts The King's Singers and saxophonist Ashu.
