"Our Town," directed by Julie Bell Petrak, will open on Oct. 25, launching the TPNC's 67th season.
Other offerings in the new season will include:
A holiday "panto," a musical comedy for children and adults, directed by Patrick Kiley, in December;
"New Canaan is `Our Town,' and is a perfect place to do this play," said Sheri Dean, co-president of the Town Players. "We have a distinct identity and plenty of colorful characters, just as they do in Grover's Corners," the fictional setting for Wilder's play.
Petrak, who also directed the production "Of Mice and Men" at the Powerhouse Theatre in May, said, "Thornton Wilder uses universal characters who could live anywhere at any time, so there are parts for actors of many ages and types."
