by Thornton Wilder

An American classic! As the stage manager say: “This is the way we were in our growing-up and in our marrying and in our doctoring and in our living and in our dying.” Life in a New Hampshire town depicted with humor, picturesqueness and pathos . . . set against the background of centuries of time, social history, and religious ideas.

April 22, 23, 29 and 30 and May 1 at 8 p.m.; April 25 and May 2 at 2 p.m. – Fisher Theater, Ames
