‘Our Town’ opens today in Bainbridge
The Out of the Woodwork Players will open their 25th anniversary season in the Town Hall Theatre today with Thornton Wilder’s play, “Our Town.”
Set at the turn of the century in the fictitious New England town of Grover’s Corners, this story of life in a small town “has become a classic for its simplistic style as well as its universal appeal to those coming of age in small communities,” according to a media release.
