Our Town

by Thornton Wilder

directed by Bruce Longworth

February 21 – April 27, 2019 Festival Stage | 2 hours, plus intermissions Recommended ages 11+

Our Town follows young lovers Emily and George and their neighbors through a life journey that delivers universal truths about what it means to be human. *Please note that this performance will have two (2) 10-minute intermissions.

“We all know that something is eternal. And it ain’t houses and it ain’t names, and it ain’t earth, and it ain’t even the stars . . . everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings. All the greatest people ever lived have been telling us that for five thousand years and yet you’d be surprised how people are always losing hold of it. There’s something way down deep that’s eternal about every human being.” ― excerpt from Thornton Wilder’s Our Town
