'Our Town' opens tonight at Eastern Promising another season of classic entertainment, Eastern Washington University Theatre will open tonight with "Our Town" by Thornton Wilder, which plays every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening through Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. at University Theatre. "Our Town" was first performed in the McCarter Theatre in Princeton, N.J., on Jan. 22, 1923, and was directed by Jed Harris. On Feb. 4 of that year, the show first played in New York and later won the coveted Pulitzer Prize. "Our 'Town", directed by Norman Boulanger, professor of theatre, cen- ters around life in the small town of Grover's Corners, N.H. Like all small towns, Grover's Corners has the stereo- typical town gossip, church choir, doctor, newspaper publisher and milk- man. The Gibbs and Webb families are among the common folk. A member of each family, George Gibbs and Emily Webb, symbolize the way of life in a small town. The play follows George and Emily through different stages of their inherited lifestyles from being good friends, to going steady, to being in love, to marrying and having a child. By using minimal props and scenery, the audience soon identifies with the characters of "Our Town". Emily's profound insight impacts the audience when she reflects on her life. In her classic monologue, Emily shares her enlightenment as she says, "Oh earth, you're too wonderful for anybody to realize you. Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it?" Playing Emily is freshman Alysse Gourley, who has had previous stage experience as Irene Molley in "The Matchmaker", Jane in "Babes in Toy- land" and Frau Schmidt in "The Sound of Music". William Wernofsky is play- ing Emily's father, Mr. Webb. He has been in Eastern Washington University Theatre's productions of "Willow Springs", "Whose Life is it, Anyway?" and "As You Like It". Fodie Jo Short is portraying Mrs. Webb and has been in productions of "Willow Springs", "Little Mary Sunshine" and "Jesus Christ Superstar". Emily's little brother, Wally Webb, is being played by George Neal. Portraying George Gibbs is Scott Nell, who has been in other theatre productions, but who is making his first appearance at Eastern Washington University Theatre. Dr. Gibbs is being portrayed by Eric Hartley. Hartley, a senior at Eastern Washington Uni- versity, majoring in theatre, has played in many Eastern Washington Uni- versity Theatre productions, including "'Willow Springs", "L'Histoire du Sol- dat" and "Godspell". Rebekah Stone Buel, who has performed in Eastern Washington University Theatre's pro- ductions of "Willow Springs" and "Godspell", is playing Mrs. Gibbs. George's sister, Rebecca, is being portrayed by Pam Ferraro. Playing the part of the Stage Manag- er is Terry Lewis. Lewis is making his first appearance at Eastern Washing- ton University Theatre, but has pre- viously portrayed the parts of Jack Worthing in Columbia Basin College's production of "The Importance of Being Earnest" and Sylvestro in "Scap- ino".
