The Menlo School Drama Department will present Thornton Wilder's 1938 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, "Our Town," Feb. 6-9 in the Florence Moore Auditorium on the Menlo School campus, 50 Valparaiso Ave. in Atherton.
There will be four performances: at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 6-8, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9.
The play "whispers to us the urgent necessity of living in the here and now which is all anyone, anywhere, be it Grover's Corners or the Bay Area, really ever has," says Menlo's new drama director, Steven Minning. The production's contemporary staging reflects this theme.
