Pulitzer Prize-winning ‘Our Town’ play opens this weekend in Louisa
Mountain Movers Theater hosts classic play for five days
LOUISA, Ky. (WTVQ/Press Release) – Mountain Movers Theatre Company (MOMO Theatre) is proud to present the classic American play, “Our Town” opening on Friday, November 5, 2021. MOMO Theatre is determined to value the dignity, diversity, and talents of every individual. They desire to help new generations of Kentuckians discover their destinies and provide a platform to pursue their artistic passions and live their dreams.
Our Town tells the story of everyday life in small town America. Since its debut in 1938, Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” has been embraced as an American classic on the stage. The play is simple enough to be studied by middle school students, yet rich enough in meaning to warrant continual productions on Broadway and in community theatres across the country.
“Our MOMO Theatre team picked this show for our 2021 season because it celebrates the beauty of the ordinary, and the fact that the smallest things in one’s life are really the biggest things – the power of being present in the moments that may seem insignificant, but when they are connected together, make up a life worth living,” says Kim Willard, Artistic Director for the theatre.
All shows are performed at the Garden Theatre in Louisa, KY. The building has quite a history itself, dating back to 1921. Mountain Movers Theatre Company is proud to call The Garden Theatre home and produces a year-round offering of events, including children’s theatre, community theatre, and professional theatre productions.
This classic American play will be presented as a part of MOMO Theatre’s Kids and Community Series, featuring a local cast of actors ages ranging from 7-57. The show opens November 5 and runs November 6, 11th, 12th and 13th. Tickets will be available at the door at The Garden Theatre in Louisa or online: http://mtnmoverstheatre.com/
