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.
