Nearly 40 actors take the stage in King Theatre this weekend for this year’s Class IV production, Our Town. Directed by performing arts faculty Eleza Moyer, the play transports audiences to the small fictitious town of Grover’s Corners to follow the life, love and death within two American families.
“Our Town is one of the plays that the more time you spend with it, the more you discover,” says Ms. Moyer. “It is an exploration of the little things in life that make life worth living. It questions whether we, the human race, take the time to notice what is actually in front of us while we are living it. In a world of social media, it really reminds us of the importance of being in the present.”
A long-standing performing arts tradition, the Class IV Play is an all-inclusive and beloved class project. Class IV students not on stage are contributing behind the scenes, acting as ushers, poster designers, or joining the audience in support of their classmates.
Our Town begins Thursday, November 19, and Friday, November 20, at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, November 21, at 7 p.m.
Tickets are on sale in Forbes during lunch or online at https://miltontickets.
