Jerry Scofield PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Every so often a play is written with a touch of greatness. Out of these plays come the few that will al- ways be a part of the theatre-the few that will be played before audiences not born when they were first produced.
"OUR TOWN" is such a play because of its simplic- ity; because of its sincerity; because of its compassionate understanding of life in any town, of any human being, from birth to death. -
We are proud to present "OUR TOWN" as our final show this season and hope you will join us for an excep- tional theatre experience. As Alexander Woollcott said, "In all my days as a theatregoer no play ever moved me so deeply." Truly "OUR TOWN" is a classic in the an- nals of American theatrical achievement, a play to be seen again and again:
Phyllis Eshelman President
We would like to call attention to the lobby display of set designs done by Alice Crawford for Civic Theatre productions.
