Thornton Wilder’s final word on how he wanted his play performed is an invaluable addition to the American stage and to the libraries of theatre lovers internationally. Performances: Thursday, February 1st @ 7:00pm Friday, February 2nd @ 7:00pm Saturday, February 3rd @ 7:00pm. Tickets are $5.00 for students and $7.00 for adults. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
