The Classic Theater Guild Inc. presents the Classic Stage play “Our Town”. This three-act play by American playwright Thornton Wilder, tells the story of the fictional American small town of Grover’s Corners between the years of 1901 and 1913. We are pulled into a world where we witness first hand the everyday lives of its citizens as the main character, the Stage Manager, addresses the audience, brings in guests lecturers, fields questions from the audience, and fills in playing some of the roles. The play is performed without a set and the actors mime their actions without the use of props. Come join The Classic Theater Guild Inc. for this truly classic piece.
