Though the play requires minor stage props and scenery, the theater crafts I and II classes have successfully contributed to the production of the play, which will be held in the old Campus Inn. The evening shows will be April 24 – April 27 at 7 p. m. and the matinee show will be April 28 at 2:00 p. m.
With a heartwarming plot that will leave audiences with much appreciation for their lives and the people in them, “Our Town” will captivate all viewers.
If you can’t make it to this production or want to see more from the students, they will also showcase their bi-annual One Act festival on May 2 and May 3 at 8:00 p.m. in the old Campus Inn.
