MILWAUKEE – Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer prize-winning drama Our Town will be presented by Marquette Theatre.

Set in the small New England town of Grover’s Corners in 1901, Our Town returns to the Helfaer stage after 25 years. The story of Emily and George is both charming and heartbreaking while discovering the profound greatness in life’s simple moments. Theatre goers will rediscover this American classic that explores the universal need to find a place to belong and the challenge of appreciating life. The play will run during the following dates:

  • Thursday Sept. 25, and Friday, Sept. 26, at 7:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, Sept. 28, at 2:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 1, through Saturday, Oct. 4, at 7:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, Oct. 5, at 2:30 p.m.

The Saturday, Sept. 27, performance of Our Town will be at 2:30 p.m. to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Evan P. and Marion Helfaer Theatre.
