Thornton Wilder—who begins Our Town with the direction, "No curtain. No scenery."—might have been thrilled to stage his Pulitzer Prize winning play in a space where theatre had never been created before. His play pioneered a form of expressionism that demanded an audience collaborate in the creation of the story without the aid of production elements of any kind. When Strawberry Theatre Workshop Artistic Director Greg Carter walked into the unfinished performance space at 12th Ave Arts on Capitol Hill, he decided that Wilder was uniquely suitable to welcome the neighborhood into a new venue. "The idea of this production is that 12th Ave Arts is not a theatre until we make it one." "We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures."—Thornton Wilder. 12th Ave Arts January 22- February 21, 2015 Thu-Fri-Sat 7:30pm Sun 2pm written by Thornton Wilder directed by Greg Carter performed by Amy Thone as the Stage Manager Anastasia Higham as Emily Webb Sheila Daniels as Mrs Webb Greg Lyle-Newton as Mr Webb Joe Cummings as George Gibbs Marianne Owen as Mrs Gibbs Rob Burgess as Dr Gibbs Amy Fleetwood as Mrs Soames John Ulman as Simon Stinson with Margaret Savas, Shanna Allman Remke, Richard Hesik, Nate Kelderman, Alexander Silva, and Analiese Guettinger. designed by Melanie Burgess (Costumes) Matthew Smucker (Scenery) Dave Tosti-Lane (Sound) Reed Nakayama (Lights) Katherine Stromberger (Props and Paint) Adam Hulse stage managed by Claire Branch Gabrielle Strong Blake Huddleston General Admission $36 Seniors over 60 years $27 Students under 25 years $18 Tickets @ http://bit.ly/OurTownTix
