An American classic opens the seventh annual arts festival.
An exciting comeback for the arts begins with a classic this week as “Our Town” opens at the Argenta Community Theater, kicking off the seventh annual Acansa South Arts Festival.
Since its Broadway debut in 1938, ‘Our Town’ has won numerous awards (including a Pulitzer Prize) and iconic status for its portrayal of life, love and death in the small town of Grover’s. Corners.
The show is directed by Ben Grimes, who also directed ACT’s well-received production “A Streetcar Named Desire” as part of the 2019 Acansa Festival.
“Our City” is the sixth in ACT’s 2021-2022 lineup, dubbed its “big reopening season.” Preview performances begin Wednesday, March 9, with the show running through March 19. Masks and proof of vaccination or a negative test are required. Visit the ACT website for more details.
The show kicks off two weeks of Acansa events taking place on the subway, a diverse slate that includes comedy, dance and lots of music featuring artists from across the country.
