Our Town, presented by Artistry


  • September 6-29, Wednesday-Saturday shows at 7:30 pm; Sunday shows at 2:00 pm

For 17 days throughout September, Artistry presents one of the most enduring plays in American history at the Schneider Theater at Bloomington Center for the Arts (1800 W. Old Shakopee Road).

Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Our Town tells the story of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, and the simultaneously remarkable and quotidian lives of its inhabitants over the twelve long (and short) years from 1901 to 1913. Narrated by the omnipotent Stage Manager and anchored by the love story of young George Gibbs and Emily Webb, Our Town is a play about life: at once epic, ordinary, and fleeting. The New York Times writes: “Our Town presents a long-gone way of American life, yet the eternal verities it embraces are as touching as ever.”

Directed by Artistry's Artistic Director, Benjamin McGovern and featuring an outstanding cast headlined by Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominated actress Linda Kelsey, Our Town is an experience you won't want to miss!
