Anthony Guest, the director of the Aquinas College Theatre Program and assistant professor of theatre in the Aquinas Communication Department, will be directing the production.

"Our Town" takes the viewer on a journey of life in 1903 in Grover's Corners, a small town sleepy where life moves along in an unassuming manner. The viewer experiences the joys and pains of life in the early twentieth century almost as a resident of the New England town. The story unfolds partially through the narration of the stage manager. Wilder's skill with language provides the emotion that makes the story so touchingly come to life.

The members of the cast are students and faculty/staff members. A cast list follows:
