American Shakespeare Center to stage Our Town

Special to the Enterprise

American Shakespeare Center will stage Our Town in the Gilliam Center for the Arts on the UVa-Wise campus, at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 12.

The performance is presented by Pro-Art Association and the University of Virginia’s College at Wise.

This classic drama is a moving look at life in the small town of Grover’s Corners. Our Town examines what it means to grow up.

In three acts, “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage” and “Death and Eternity,” Thornton Wilder studies the deeply personal, yet remarkably universal, lives of the Webb and Gibbs families. This poignant American tale explores friendship, love and death, but most importantly, what it truly means to live.

Admission is $15 adults, $10 seniors 55 plus, free to K-12 and college students. UVa-Wise students receive cultural credit for attending this event.

The program is partially supported by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
