SCV Summer Theatre Presents "Our Town"
10, 2005--The St. Croix Valley Summer Theatre will celebrate its 39th
season with the first of four productions in the UW-River Falls Blanche
Davis Theatre in the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building beginning June 23.
"Our Town," by Thornton Wilder, has become an American stage
treasure and is Wilder's most renowned and frequently performed play.
First produced in 1938, the play reveals the ordinary lives of people
living in the small town of Grover's Corners, N.H.
River Falls actors Sandee Blakeley and Paul McMillan (seated left), portray
Mrs. Gibbs and Doc Gibbs, and Patrice Veit (seated right), plays Mrs.
Webb. In this production art does imitate life; McMillan is an M.D. at
the River Falls Area Hospital. Tom Monn (seated right), Woodbury, Minn.,
is Mr. Webb. Adia Morris (standing), of Minneapolis, is the all-knowing
Stage Manager. Joe Lullo, Madison, Wis., and Lauren Rusch, Manawa, Wis.
(kneeling), are the young lovers.
A large cast of River Falls and St. Croix Valley actors completes the
ensemble, which is being directed by SCVST veteran Ken Hill, a Ripon College
theater professor, and director of last year's "On Golden Pond."
All performances of "Our Town" are in the air-conditioned comfort
of the Blanche Davis Theatre, Kleinpell Fine Arts Building at UW-River
Falls. Evening performances, June 23 - July 2, begin at 7:30 p.m. A June
26 matinee is at 1:30 p.m. Adult tickets are $13; students and senior
tickets are$10; and children's tickets are $8.

Fine Arts Building, is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To
