Students in the Livingston Parish Public Schools talented theatre program will perform showings of Thorton Wilder’s “Our Town” at 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, April 19-20, at the Suma Crossing Theatre, located at just off I-12 Exit 19 in Satsuma.
Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students.
“Our Town” is a metatheatrical three-act play that follows the story of the fictional American small town of Grover's Corners between 1901 and 1913 through the everyday lives of its citizens.
Students in the production will come from schools in the southeastern portion of the parish, which includes Doyle Elementary and Doyle High, Holden High, Albany High and Albany Middle, Springfield High and Springfield Middle, Maurepas High, French Settlement High and French Settlement Elementary, and Frost Elementary.
In order to enter the gifted and talented program, students had to go through a screening process, an interview and an audition in front of state examiners, all of whom are professionals in their fields.
In March, more than 85 of these gifted and talented students put on three showings of “Way Off Broadway,” a variety show that consisted of more than 30 recitals, monologues, skit reenactments, big Broadway numbers and an instrumental piece.
Once again, students will be performing director Melani Glascock and artistic director Sherry Martin in “Our Town.”
