Join D.C. area alumni and friends for a three-course dinner followed by a theatrical production of Our Town at Ford’s Theatre. Tickets are $65.00 per person.

Description:

A tribute to life’s little blessings.

Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama presents a timeless commentary on the transience of human existence.

Teenagers George and Emily meet, fall in love, marry—and suffer the slings and arrows of everyday life. Wilder transforms their ordinary story into a poignant and captivating exploration of mortality and the interconnectivity of human beings.

In celebration of the play's 75th-anniversary year, Stephen Rayne (The Heavens Are Hung In Black, Sabrina Fair and Parade) returns to direct a diverse cast, creating an Our Town for our time.

“Our Town is a play which transcends differences in culture, class and race, and speaks to the great themes common to all great art: love, death and marriage,” Rayne said. “From its first production in 1938, the play struck a powerful chord with the American psyche, and it is as fresh and relevant today as it was then. I am hoping to bring a fresh perspective to this great classic and present a production that Ford's and Mr. Wilder will be proud of.”

Recommended for ages 12 and up; play contains complex language and themes. Dates and actors subject to change.

Registration includes performance ticket and dinner. Limit four tickets per registrant.  Each ticket is $65.00 and the seats are in the Premium Orchestra section.

Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. at Central and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m.

This is one exciting event that you won't want to miss!
