Tickets on sale now for 'Our Town' performance at TRCC | Arts & Culture
POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - Center Stage, Three Rivers College’s student/staff/community theater, will open its 2012-2013 season with the Pulitzer Prize winning “Our Town.”
“Our Town” will be performed at the Tinnin Fine Arts Center on the college’s Poplar Bluff campus at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 19-20, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 21.
"'Our Town' is an American classic by Thornton Wilder. It portrays life in small town America in the early 1900s and focuses on many issues still prevalent today," said Robert Cook, Director of Center Stage and the Three Rivers Tinnin Fine Arts Center and a theatre instructor at the college.
The play is about the circle of life: growing up, adulthood and death and the relationships of the citizens of Grover’s Corners especially that of George Gibbs and Emily Webb.
“The play teaches the lesson that life is about acknowledging and enjoying the small things and that we need to appreciate life while we are living it,” Cook said.
The cast includes students and faculty at Three Rivers College, as well as members of the community.
“The goal of Center Stage is to provide as many performance opportunities to those in the area interested in acting and theater and to provide a wide range of theater experiences to the community,” Cook said.
Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for children, students, and senior citizens. Tickets are on sale now at the Poplar Bluff Chamber of Commerce and on campus at the Three Rivers Financial Services Office. Tickets also will be sold at the door.
