Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, “Our Town,” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday from April 3–12 at the Black Box Theatre, at the corner of 11th and Grant streets on the campus of Montana State University.
Director Tom Watson, professor in the MSU School of Film and Photography, brings the classic piece of American theatre to life with Bozeman actors from MSU and the community, ranging in age from 10 to 50. The cast includes Kari Doll, Paul Heitt-Renne and Spencer Mirabal. Bozeman High School student Mariclaire Bozarth takes on the pivotal role of Emily Webb.
Described by Edward Albee as "...the greatest American play ever written," Our Town mines the depths of our relationship to home and community. Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families in turn-of-the-century small-town New Hampshire, as their children fall in love, marry and eventually die. This play is suitable for ages 7 and up.
Tickets for“OurTown” are $12 general admission, $10 for students and seniors, and are available at First Interstate Bank in the SUB, the front desk of the Visual Communications Building at 11th and Grant at MSU, or at the door.
