Our Town, by A Community Theatre
Sean McQuaid’s review of Our Town from the Buzz
June 1995—The May 11-14 presentation of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town at the Carrefour Theatre was a major first. The play itself has been produced countless times before, but this performance marks the first production by a major new Island theatre group: ACT (a community theatre).
ACT is essentially a community theatre group who hope to promote and produce theatre in Prince Edward Island through performances, mentoring and workshops. Members range from amateur enthusiasts and drama students to seasoned professionals, and Our Town brought together many of them for the new company’s stage debut.
