The Academy for the Performing Arts
presents Our Town
April 26-29, 2012
The award winning Academy for the Performing Arts Theatre Department is very
pleased to be able to present the classic of the American Theatre, Our
Town. Thornton Wilder won
the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1938 for his play that uses the story of a young
couple falling in love in a small town in 1901 New Hampshire to let us look at
the universal themes of life, love and death.
The large cast of over 50 actors
features Zack Carlson as The Stage Manager who guides the audience through the
highly theatrical yet simplistic look at Groverís Corners at the turn of the
century. Garrett Brown and Marilee
Jooste play George Gibbs and Emily Webb, two teenagers who fall in love and
marry over the course of the play. Bryce
Miller and Sarah Ashley play Dr. and Mrs. Gibbs with Alex Jean and Cheyenne Derr
as Mr. and Mrs. Webb the parents of the young couple who are very good friends.
Kaitlyn Glenn as Mrs. Soames and Braeden Miller as Simon Stinson bring
two of the more interesting characters to life.
music will be provided by Stella Monshaw who won a Cappies award for playing for
last yearís production of Tom Jones.
A very unique set is being designed by Tiffany Nguyuen.
The lighting design is by Quinn Owen and Danielle Watson with Danielle
Kisner designing the sound. The
period costumes are being designed by Jordan-Marc Diamond, Oliva Ducharme, Jenna
Lego and Monica Wilson. Sharon Cowen
has been coaching the church choir in the play.
Robert Rotenberry is directing the drama.
