Our Town
July 31 August 25
"Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it? -- every, every minute?"

Long after it won the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Our Town remains one of the most popular American plays of all time, reminding audiences across the country that there is beauty in the ordinary. Celebrate love, family, and community with our music-infused production of Wilder's masterwork.

Recommended for ages 10+. Approximate run time is 2 hours and 15 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission.

July 31-August 25, 2019 By Thornton Wilder Directed by Abigail Adams Leonard C. Haas Stage
