Anoka-Ramsey Community College will showcase their students’ hard work in the winter production of He Said & She Said by Alice Gerstenberg. The play will hit the Cambridge theatre’s stage March 1, 2, and 3 at 7:30 pm, with a matinee showing on March 4 at 2 pm. 

“I like to find different genres of shows and plays that take place in different time periods so Anoka-Ramsey students get a chance to work on a variety of styles.” said Lisa Weaver, the play’s director and Anoka-Ramsey theatre instructor, “Last year, the show was a contemporary play set in the 1960s. He Said & She Said is a comedy of manners written in the 1920s and set during WWI.  We are also incorporating cast members and some music students into the show with a musical interlude of songs from the time period”, said Weaver. “That has been really fun! My hope is to bring a light and breezy romp to the campus in the middle of a cold winter!”

Tickets are available to the general public for $8. March 4 is Senior Sunday, with tickets on sale for $5. Tickets may be purchased at the Cambridge Campus Bookstore, or at the box office prior to showtime.

More about He Said & She Said

In He Said & She Said, Enid invites two friends, Mrs.  Packard and Diana, to dine with her and her husband Felix. However, upon arriving, Mrs. Packard has a piece of gossip for Enid about Diana that threatens to ruin the night and to end friendships. As this gossip gets rolling, characters rarely get a chance to finish their thoughts or say exactly what they mean, making other characters assume the worst and relate a version of the story more twisted than the last. A comic and cautionary tale, the musical reveals the damage that rumors and gossip often create.
