our town

Starting Thursday night, the Contemporary Youth Arts Company takes on Thornton Wilder’s classic play, Our Town. This Pulitzer-winning play about life in the village of Grover’s Corners has become a staple of American theater, and is read in classrooms to this day.

Our Town has also been a major influence on the work of our local master playwright and the director of this production, Dan Kehde. His own work, “Good Night, Grover’s Corners” is a prime example of this.

Describing this play is a bit of a challenge. So many people know it by heart. I will simply strongly urge you to see what, I’m certain, will be a thoughtful production, with an excellent cast. The date, time and ticket information is in the graphic above.

Our Town will feature Nik Tidquist, Mariah Plante, Michael Tighe, Matthew Connelly, Beth Chambers, Siercia O’Brien, Patrick Felton, Maddy Ranson, Caitlin Moore, Kat Johnson, Leon Alexander, Austin Lowe, Neil Gandee, Lisa Gandee, Angel Gandee, Lauren Mallory, Olivia King, and Bob Bird as the residents of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire.
