Prep Players present Our Town: An American Classic

The Prep Players will present the simple and touching American classic — Our Town Nov. 12 and 13, at 8 p.m., in the Weir Experimental Theater at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Performing Arts.

OurTownPosterThe story follows the small town of Grover’s Corners through three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage,” and “Death and Eternity.” Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually — in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre — die.

This show is pushing the ensemble in ways that are surprising them. There is nothing to hide behind — no set, no props, nothing – because the play is so focused on the people. The talented ensemble includes Fairfield Prep students and young women from area high schools.

For tickets call 203-254-4010: $5 for students, $10 for adults.

Katie Rooney as Emily Webb, Jackson Mendes as the Stage Manager, Brendan Sawyer as George Gibbs.
