Our Town Rehearsal Photos 09
May

Our Town Photos Blog

With just one week before the 2019 season opens (on 16 May), it’s time to catch up with Our Town, as we prepare to move from the rehearsal room to on-stage technical rehearsals.

Take a look at our rehearsal photos

The cast is led by Laura Rogers in the central role of Stage Manager, who introduces another ordinary day in Grover’s Corners.  The townsfolk go about their daily business: newspapers are delivered; people go to work; gardens are tended to. And a boy and girl fall in love. The boy, George Gibbs, is played by Arthur Hughes, and the girl, Emily Webb, by Francesca Henry.

But, as life’s events unfold and a community comes together, one question remains: “do any human beings ever realise life as they live it? Every, every minute?”

We look forward to welcoming you to our 87th season!
