Thornton Wilder’s Our Town to Grace SUU Stage
November 03, 2009
The SUU department of Theatre Arts and Dance will perform Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, directed by Christine Frezza. Our Town, will run November 5‐7 and 12‐14, 2009, in the SUU Auditorium Theatre. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for General Admission, $8 for SUU Faculty and Staff, $5 for students/children and free for SUU Students with a valid Student ID.
Set in a 1930’s theatre, Our Town is the story of an average community depicted through the everyday lives of its inhabitants.
The show begins with the necessities of a daily routine and reveals a family’s intimate and established lives. Through the process of the following three acts, Wilder allows the characters to explore the need for human companionship and gradually shows the deeper aspects of life and death. During this exploration, Our Town reveals the age old tale of children in a hurry to grow up but still wanting to hold on to the security of childhood.
