You’re invited to the timeless classic, “Our Town” Pulitzer Prize winning play by Thornton Wilder Described by Edward Albee as “…the greatest American play ever written,” the story follows the small town of Grover’s Corners through three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage,” and “Death and Eternity.” Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre – die. 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.
