Our Town

By Thornton Wilder

Directed by Roseann Sheridan

One of the masterpieces of American drama is given fresh life in a modern production that stresses the timelessness of the themes of life, love, death and the meaning of community. Through the stories of two families in a small town, an immersive theatrical experience allows the audience to share in the sorrows and joys of life as depicted by Madison native Thornton Wilder.

The cast features Niko Alegria, Emma Bahnson, Isaac Brieske, Nolan Elsbecker, Jamie Herb, Jessica Karinski, Michael Kelley, Margaret Nelson, Dave Pausch, Tucker Penney, Niharika Talwar, Cobi Tappa, Denzel Taylor, Madelaine Trewin, Paul Urbanski, and Zhiyun Zhao.
