Saint Mary’s students to stage ‘Our Town’ Nov 8-11

WINONA, Minn. — Audiences will get a gentle reminder to not take the little things in life for granted as the Saint Mary’s University Theatre and Dance Department presents “Our Town” 7:30 p.m. Nov. 8-10 and 3 p.m. Nov. 11 in Page Theatre.

Written by Thornton Wilder and directed by Judy Myers, “Our Town,” is set in the small town of Grover’s Corners, N.H., in the early 1900s, as told through the eyes of the stage manager. Set in three acts: daily life, love and marriage, death and eternity, the play presents universal ideas about family, love and life that are essentially the same as they were more than 100 years ago.

This work was especially selected by the Department of Theatre and Dance to celebrate the Saint Mary’s University Centennial season.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and seniors and are available online at or at the SMU Box Office, (507) 457-1715 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
