CCT Announces Cast for Ordinary People


Clayton Community Theatre (CCT) is pleased to announce the cast for our upcoming production of Ordinary People, by Nancy Gilsenan adapted from a novel by Judith Guest, directed by Jessica Johns Kelly.  BUY TICKETS 



Audiences may be familiar with the novel produced later as a four-time Oscar-winning movie in 1980 by actor-director Robert Redford.  The novel and screenplay were adapted to a stage production by playwright Nancy Gilsenan.


Conrad Jarrett had an older brother named Buck, and now Buck is gone. What's left of young Conrad's family, with his successful, well-intentioned father and his beautiful, organized and remote mother, is in terrible jeopardy, as is Conrad himself. They are all "ordinary people," and each is fighting a hard battle. This play goes to the essence of a young man, his friends, and family, their relationships and survival.


Here is the cast!


Conrad Jarrett – Jeremy Schnelt

Cal Jarrett – Alex Alderson

Beth Jarrett – Tracy Murphy

Dr. Berger – Brad Kinzel

Kevin Stillman – Tyler Webster 

Joe Lazenby – Tyler Crandall

Jeannine Pratt – Nadja Kapetanovich

Karen Aldrich – Sarah Vallo

Coach Salan – Tim Naegelin


The production will be presented March 23 – April 2, 2023


All plays are presented in the Washington University South Campus Theatre, 6501 Clayton Road, in Clayton.  Each production runs for two weeks, on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 8:00 and Sunday afternoons at 2:00.
