As best as I can remember, Our Town was my first staged play (as a member of the audience). I was amazed, seeing my friends on stage at Hayes Junior High, putting on this amazing, thoughtful and moving performance.
That was the last time I saw the show (I'd rather not think about how long ago that was), so I'm really looking forward to seeing what ARTS does with the show!
It's the story of an American family, told in a unique format, using a minimal set. The focus is on the story and the characters.
It's taking the stage in Huntington this weekend - and if you want to take advantage of the dinner offered, you'd better get your reservation in - Saturday's dinner is sold out!
