WFU Theatre Season to Open with Our Town

 The Wake Forest University Theatre will open its season with Our Town by Thornton Wilder, which will be directed by Associate Professor of Theatre Dr. J.K. Curry.

In this classic American play, winner of the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Wilder invites us to reflect on how we fill our days through an examination of life in one small New England town in the early 20th century. A timeless story about family life, love, community and the passage of time.

Along with Dr. Curry, several members of the WFU Theatre faculty are involved in the production. Scenic and lighting design will be by Jonathan Christman, Associate Professor of Theatre. Tyler Wilson, Teaching Fellow in Design, will be Costume Designer. Current student Tracy Wegner is stage managing. The cast consists of Philip Kayser, Alexa Erb, Clint Blumenberg, Heather Sullivan, Justice von Maur, Tyler Johnson, Thomas Poston, Eli Bradley, Eric Bray, Hayleigh Carroll, Jayson Pugh, Eden Sharpe, Kathan Gandhi, Zeke Bradley, Lucas Bradley, Alex Nedvidek, Jack Kountouris, Connor Sagerman, Cole McWilliams, Caleb Cabiness, Jason Chinuntdet, Katie Gamble, Caroline Baisier, Matthew Zoltners, and Anna Hibbert.

Performances are Sept. 18-19 and 24-26 at 7:30 PM and Sept. 20 & 27 at 2:00 PM in the Mainstage Theatre of the Scales Fine Arts Center. Tickets are $15 adults, $12 senior citizens, and $7 students (price includes sales tax).
