“Our Town” Comes To The Kate

On Jan. 21 through 23, the Shoreline’s fresh new theater group, The Saybrook Stage Company will bring Grover’s Corners to life at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in their town of Old Saybrook, Connecticut.  With the Stage Manager as your guide, Thorton Wilder’s classic story of the fictional New Hampshire Community takes you on a poignant journey where you will become enthralled with the everyday life of the small New England town “in their birth, in their living and in their dying.”

Under the direction of John Sebastian DeNicola, The Saybrook Stage Company’s actors are as real as the characters they portray – some are professional actors, some returning to the stage after years away and some relatively new to the stage – but the combination of personalities and talent will win your heart from the very first Act. 

The company is thrilled to perform their debut production at The Kate because it has special meaning for them in that the building that houses the beautifully renovated theater was the original home of the first stage company in town – The Old Saybrook Musical and Dramatic Club.   The Saybrook Stage Company hopes to serve the shoreline as a stage company that will provide an outlet for all who have a genuine love of theater.

The Cast of Our Town

Although Wilder wrote Our Town back in 1938, it is still one of the most performed pieces of theatrical works today for the worries, joys and tragedies that the characters live through are virtually the same ones we face today.  So be sure to venture out of your town to experience “Our Town” at The Kate – where you will be awakened to truly enjoy life for what it is – a precious gift to be savored and appreciated – every, every minute.
