Rubicon Theatre of Ventura presents the centerpiece of the company's 15th Anniversary "Our Town/Your Theatre" Season, with Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning classic Our Town. This year marks not only Rubicon's 15th anniversary, but also the 75th Anniversary of Our Town's first production, which is being celebrated nationally.
Set in Grover's Corners, a quintessentially American town at the turn-of-the-last-century, Our Town is a powerful and poetic reminder of the precious nature of everyday existence. As the Stage Manager in Rubicon's production, Rubicon Artistic Director James O'Neil narrates Wilder's immortal tale of birth, love, marriage, death and daily life.
"Oh, earth, you're too wonderful for anyone to realize you," says Emily, played in our production byLauren Patten (Rubicon's Anne Frank). The large cast of 30, directed by Rubicon Artistic Associate Jenny Sullivan, also includes TOM ASTOR, DILLON FRANCIS, Joseph Fuqua, Robin Gammell, Stephanie McNamara, ELYSE MIRTO, Remi Sandri and many others. Our Town begins previews onMarch 6, with the official opening on Saturday, March 9 (and a gala party following with the cast and local dignitaries in the Ventura City Hall atrium).
