Classic 1930s Musical Play “Our Town” | Berkeley
For their final production of the 23rd Season the Shotgun Players are proud to present a fresh interpretation of the classic Our Town, the Pulitzer Prize winning play by Thornton Wilder, featuring music direction by The Bengsons.
Pay-what-you-can Previews run December 4-10, 2014. No one turned away for lack of funds, but some dates are already sold out, so we recommend reserving your sliding scale tickets online to guarantee a seat.
Written in 1938, Our Town is deceptively simple: a play in three acts, each focusing on a different slice of life in the town of Grover’s Corners. With live music throughout, the Shotgun Players will find the heartbeat of every line, every word. Wilder graduated from Berkeley High in 1915, and Shotgun is proud to bring this classic to The Ashby Stage. “That’s what it was to be alive…To be always at the mercy of one self-centered passion, or another.”
