August 13 & 14, 2010
Our Town by Thornton Wilder follows the small town of Grover’s Corners through three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage,” and “Death and Eternity.” Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually–in one of the most famous scenes in American theater–die. Our Town is representational of small American towns at the turn of the century, including Penfield. This presentation will include a video diorama of “Our Town Penfield” as slides of Penfield appear as a backdrop to this poignant historical play.
Performances are free and are held at Penfield Amphitheater, Veterans Memorial Park, 3100 Atlantic Avenue. Performances begin at 8:45 pm.
WindWorks Design is providing lights and sound for this production. Please come see the performance!
