Our Town continues Actors Theatre’s 50th anniversary season

The Thornton Wilder classic and staple of community theatres nationwide, Our Town brings the simplicity and beauty of daily life into focus for the residents of Grovers Corners, New Hampshire at the turn of the 20th century.

The Actors Theatre production, directed by Artistic Director Les Waters, features Bruce McKenzie (Romeo and Juliet and The Delling Shore at Actors) as the omniscient Stage Manager. Long-time Actors favorites William McNulty, veteran of over 150 Actors productions, and Ann Hodapp, who just finished her 22nd season of A Christmas Carol will also appear.

Our Town also highlights a Louisville local, Gregory Maupin, co-founder of Le Petomane Theatre Ensemble.

Actors Theatre has developed several special events in conjunction with the run of Our Town, including a performance presented with theatrically trained American Sign Language interpreters on January 29.

Following the Saturday, January 25th production, a panel discussion featuring two clinical psychologists and Actors Theatre artistic staff will explore Our Town from various perspectives. The discussion is free and open to the public.

Our Town opens Tuesday, January 21 and runs through February 9. Tickets to all performances are available online or by calling the Actors Theatre box office at 502-584-1205.

Actors Theatre has several discount ticket options available which can be seen here.
