Stage 2 Update
Our Town by Thornton Wilder is NEXT WEEK
Wednesday 18th – Saturday 21st July, 7.30pm
The Crescent Theatre, Sheepcote Street, Birmingham B16 8AE
Tickets: £9 available from: http://www.crescent-theatre.co.uk/Y2012/stage2-our-town.html
The show is now just over a week away! Make sure to get your tickets ASAP and spread the word about this uplifting production!
Our Town is a very interesting piece of theatre, almost the `theatre of the mind` with minimal set and mimed props, allowing the audience to interpret the scene how they will. This is not a Stage2 twist on a classic, but how Wilder himself staged and created the play. Due to the imaginative writing of Wilder, the audience will not only experience turn-of-the-century small town life, but also the ambiance and interpretation of 1930′s drama. Stage2 is known for the diversity of its productions and it has been a good while since it has performed a true American classic, with different focuses, and emphasis to that of a British writer. The show is completely suitable for the whole family
NEWSFLASH share Our Town on FaceBook or ReTweet on Twitter for a chance to win TWO free tickets to Our Town.One lucky winner will be drawn every day until the opening of the show on the 18th of April. Good Luck!
