October 05, 2011 - Is the cliché "opposites attract" true? Find out in Clarkston Village Players latest play, "Wrong for Each Other."
"I think it's an enjoyable experience for viewers and somebody to see it," said Joe Saulski, who plays Rudy. "It really gives them a lot of different experiences in a relationship they probably can identify with. I think that's a really fun and at times very heartwarming story."
Joy Oetjens, who plays Norah, agreed.
"I think it's an enjoyable show and well written script," she said. "It's certainly an opportunity for the audience to see a little bit of themselves up there."
Saulski said he liked the character Rudy because he was fun.
"He's got a lot of spirit," Saulski said. "That's the most admirable part of him I guess."
Oetjens said her character was smart and classy.
"She certainly has some issues like everybody else, but I like that she is intelligent and has a sense of humor," Oetjens said.
Director Verne Vackaro said he was pleased with his cast.
"They've worked hard on the show and Joe has only done a couple shows with us, I think this is his third one," he said. "This is the first show Joy has done with us, but she has a lot of experience. She studied theater in college. Both are easy to work with and both follow direction."
Vackaro chose to direct "Wrong for Each Other," because he likes playwright Norm Foster.
"This is the second play I've directed by this playwright," Vackaro said. "I think he has a pulse on what audiences like."
He noted they're doing another show this year written by Foster called "Drinking Alone."
Vackaro called "Wrong for Each Other," a funny show.
"I like it's also different it's very stagey in terms of an abstract set," he said. "It moves from one scene to another which is a little bit different."
The show runs Oct. 6-9 and 13-15 at Depot Theater, 4861 White Lake Road. For tickets, call 248-573-4104.
