Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer-Prize-winning classic Our Town blends deceptively simple storytelling with depth of heart and innovative staging technique. Edward Albee called it "the greatest American play ever written." As we travel back to quaint Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire in 1901, we meet teenage Emily and her obtusely well-meaning crush George. We watch the villagers live their daily round of milk delivery, grass cutting, bean snapping and hymn sings. We listen as the public joys and secret sorrows of the populace are quietly revealed. But eventually we are astonished to realize the play isn’t about a New Hampshire village at all.

The author says, “It is an attempt to find a value above all price for the smallest events of our daily life.” And so, as it unwinds, we come to discover that this play is actually All. About. Us.

“Our Town” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.

From the novel by Mary Shelley

Frankenstein tells the original story of the iconic monster in a chilling exploration of life, death, and the nature of man. Throughout the play, spectors of death haunt both Victor and the audience, asking a horrible question: what if a sinful man had the power of God? The show incorporates metatheatre and symbolism to explore the Christian perspective behind this classic tale.

Directed by Emily Cothran `22

From the director’s notes: “This is a journey not about death and dying as much as it is about a man feeling his feelings for the first time and allowing them to take hold before they wash him away to reveal the person underneath."

Join us for a musical production in which the Cat in the Hat and JoJo imagine a world where Horton the Elephant faithfully protects the tiny Who planet and hatches an egg left in his care by the flighty Mayzie. Integrating many familiar characters and stories, this musical has a rousing pop score that dips into many musical genres including Latin, funk, and vaudeville.

SUESSICAL is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
