    Lusher Charter School presents TWO Spring 2019 Plays running in repertory:

    OUR TOWN by Thornton Wilder & CORNERS GROVE by Kaela Mei-Shing Garvin

    OUR TOWN

    Directed by Patrick McCrea & Beau Bratcher

    OUR TOWN is the classic American drama by Thornton Wilder that tells the simple yet profound story of the citizens of Grovers Corner, New Hampshire around the turn of the 20th Century. Performed with a simplicity of direction and design, this play has had the power to move audiences in profound ways since its premiere in 1938. Today, it is the most-performed American play in the world.

    performing in rep with OUR TOWN is…

    CORNERS GROVE

    Directed by Beau Bratcher

    A reverent nod to OUR TOWN by Thornton Wilder, this 21st Century-set play follows a group of young people in the town of Corner’s Grove from high school into adulthood as they deal with leaving home, falling in love, gender identity, and the death of Whitney Houston. It’s a story about growing up and hometowns, friendship and finding your place in the world.

    **PLEASE NOTE: CORNERS GROVE DOES CONTAIN SOME ADULT LANGUAGE AND SITUATIONS.
