LAPC THEATRE CONTINUES SEASON WITH THORNTON WILDER’S AMERICAN CLASSIC OUR TOWN
Los Angeles Pierce College Theatre continues its 2019-2020 Season December 6 with Thornton Wilder’s iconic American drama, Our Town. Performances begin Friday, December 6 and continue for one weekend only through Sunday, December 8, 2019 in LAPC’s Performing Arts Mainstage.
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.
LAPC Theatre’s production of Our Town will be directed by Anthony Cantrell. Cantrell and Esdras Toussaint, both theatre professors at LA Pierce College will appear on stage in the roles of Mr. Webb and Dr. Gibbs. The cast also features Tamarah Ashton, Teresa Cotton, Jasmine Curry, Wyatt Domine, Robert Ford, Justine Gorry, Vanessa Hanish, Vincent Macias, Itzhak Matos, Clara McGee, Connie Miller, Dan Proctor, Danni Rabbani, Kayvan Shai, Kaylee Tabolsky, Mimi Taylor and Norman Anthony Thatch IV. Scott Kriloff is the stage manager.
LAPC Theatre’s production features scenic design by Engelbert Peraza, costume design by Kimberly Walker, lighting design by Casey Gale and sound design by Edward Salas.
