Mill Race Theatre troupe stages ‘God of Carnage’ at auditorium

The Mill Race Theatre Company presents the comedy “God of Carnage” through Sunday at the Judson Erne Auditorium stage, 1400 25th St. in Columbus.

Seating the audience on stage around the small set is something new for the troupe that has been seeking nontraditional ways to engage local audiences, according to company leaders.

The Tony Award-winning production, which opened Thursday, is slated at 7:30 tonight through Sunday. In the story, a playground altercation between 11-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter.

John Johnson is directing. The cast includes the characters of Alan Raleigh, played by Matt Nieman; Annette Raleigh, played by Emily Nolting; Veronica Novak, played by Shannon Clulow; and Michael Novak, played by Greg Simons.

Tickets, available at, are $10 for adults and $8 for senior citizens.
