Memorial Theatre Company is back again this fall with another wonderful production! The Company will be performing Our Town, a Pulitzer-winning three act play by Thornton Wilder. Our Town takes place in the small town of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, and follows the lives of the townspeople, mainly the characters George Gibbs and Emily Webb. The story is described as a microcosm of human life and as an exploration of life, love, death, and humanity across cultures and generations. With simplistic views and complex themes, the play will have minimal set and design, with emphasis on the performance of the actors.
The show will be directed by the lovely Emily Glick, and will star talented young performers from the Memorial community. The show performances will be October 25th, 26th, November 1st, and 2nd at 7:30 pm in Theatre 300. The tickets are $5, and will be sold at lunch the week before the performances in the cafeteria or online at https://jmmourtown.brownpapertickets.com. Additionally, if you want to stay updated on the Drama department at Memorial, be sure to follow @dramaatmemorial on Instagram. And be sure to check out crew and tech for the play, which happens on Mondays and Wednesday, 6-8 pm. We encourage everyone to participate in the success of this production in any way possible!
