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.
