Our Town

By Thornton Wilder
The 80th anniversary of a landmark in American drama. Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Our Town tells the story of early twentieth century small town, Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, in order to explore timeless truths of every town, the whole world over. Narrated by the “Stage Manager”, we follow the Gibbs and Webb families, residents of Grover’s Corners, through twelve years of life changes. With humor, wit, and exceptionally powerful storytelling Wilder delivers universal truths about what it means to be human.

By Ken Ludwig
Directed by David Baecker

The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being murdered one by one and the renowned sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, along with his trusted sidekick, Dr. Watson, must work feverishly to crack the curse before it dooms the newest heir.  Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Comedic genius and Tony Award-winner Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure. Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than forty characters. Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be. Baskerville is a fast-paced and joyful comedy teeming with theatrical inventiveness

With the onset of social media, new technology and growing concern for social justice, the journey that today’s college student must embark on is filled with unique tribulations and struggles. “How have our expectations of student life differed from its reality, and how will these differences affect us? This is a chance to experience that change, spoken in our own voices.” UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT will run in the Meader Little Theater.

An elephant named Gerald and a pig named Piggie are best, best, “bestus” friends, but Gerald worries that something could go wrong that would end their friendship. Piggie is not worried at all. She’s even happier and more excited than usual. That’s because she and Gerald are invited to a party hosted by the Squirrelles, three singing squirrels who love to have a good time. And so begins a day when anything is possible. Gerald and Piggie take to the stage in a rollicking adventure that is perfect for young audiences
