Theatre of Anthem Presents Our Town
August 13, 2012
– Musical Theatre of Anthem (MTA) opens their fifth season with the straight
play, Our Town,
presented by an award-winning
cast of youth and adults, September 20 – 23 in Anthem.
Described by playwright Edward Albee as “…the greatest
American play ever written,” Our
Town 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 theatre die. Thornton Wilder's final word on
how he wanted his play performed is an invaluable addition to the American
stage and to the libraries of theatre lovers internationally.
Town is directed by
Zoni-nominee and National Youth Arts Award-winner Laura O’Meara. Performances take place
on September 20, 21, 22 at 7:00 p.m. and September 22 and 23 at 3:00 p.m. at
MTA’s new theatre performance space at 42323 N. Vision Way, Bldg. 2, Anthem,
