Our Town

Back to Events

By Thornton Wilder

“Only the invisible things are eternal.”–Sunday Adelaja

Ordinary life has great joys that very few people fully appreciate. There are also the transcendent moments surrounding love and death that come to all. This masterpiece of American theatre takes place in a small New England town at the turn of the last century. Through its themes lies the understanding that we are all connected no matter when we have lived and that we all know in our hearts that something is eternal and it isn’t the objects we own.

Adults $18, seniors $16, students $11. Season tickets on sale beginning August 28, single tickets available beginning September 11 in person from the Iowa State Center Ticket Office located in Stephens Auditorium and online at TicketMaster. Tickets are also available at the door.
