Calling adult singers! We welcome you to be a part of the Community Choir in Thornton Wilder’s Our Town this summer at People’s Light.

The Community Choir will be comprised of a group of local adult (21+) artists, performing in rotation throughout the run of the production. We welcome choir members of all experience levels and of all racial identities and denominations to bring to life the music of this play – well-known hymns including “Blest be the Tie that Binds,” “Art Thou Weary, Art Thou Languid?” and “Faith of our Fathers.”

Community Choir members will commit to participation in a series of rehearsals (up to 8) and at least 12 performances in the run of Our Town. Choir members will be responsible for individual transportation to and from the theatre. Community Choir members will be responsible for bringing in certain clothing pieces for individual costumes. For costume considerations, please click here for more details.

Rehearsals span July 3 – 30, 2019
Performances span July 31 – August 25, 2019

All rehearsals and performances will take place at People’s Light, located at 39 Conestoga Road in Malvern, PA.
