This weekend it’s time to visit ‘OUR TOWN’

Classic play opens tonight at arts center

ASHTABULA —  It’s about love and death in a small community.

The classic play “Our Town” opens tonight at G.B. Community Theatre at the Ashtabula Arts Center. Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize winning play takes place in three acts. The play takes the audience on a journey into the ordinary lives of ordinary people, leading to the conclusion that life is, with all its simple pleasures, something far too precious to fail to fully appreciate.

“Our Town” will be the final show of the fall and winter season.

“Our Town” will be on stage for two weekends, today through Sunday and April 12, 13 and 14. Friday and Saturday performances at 8 p.m. Sunday performances at 2 p.m.

Walk-in, day of the show box office tickets are $14 adults and $12 seniors/students. Save $2 per ticket when you purchase tickets in advance. Advance sale tickets must be purchased prior to 4 p.m. on Fridays or by noon on Saturday for the Saturday and Sunday performances. For tickets or more information call the center at 964-3396.

The show is directed by Steve Rhodes of Conneaut. The cast includes: Tom Milligan, Dennis Dixon, Martha Sorohan, Tim Kolman, Stellina Scacco, Derek Lebzelter, Lisa Lowery, Emily Baker, Denny Dixon, Ellen Kolman, Phil Mullet, Nathan Lowery, Marcus Lowrey, Nick Cusano, Tom Udell, Doug Warren, Cheri Stebner, Marti Dixon, Babs Legeza, Kyra Cobb, Kirsten Emerson, Larry Gasch, Doug Warren and Li Stebner.

  • wd heat rocky 9 .jpg ‘The Rocky Horror Show’ is well performed, funny and worth seeing

    Mention “The Rocky Horror Show” and almost everyone has an opinion, whether they've seen the movie or stage adaptation or not. It has been a cult classic for over three decades, since its release in 1975, and it has garnered plenty of criticism and negative commentary. Because public reaction to this extremely odd piece of musical comedy has been so strong for so long, many with an opinion have never even seen the movie or play. And many certainly do not understand that it is a spoof of shock theater. Yet they continue to berate the show as immoral and lewd.
