Notre Dame de Namur University Presents "Our Town," April 13–22

Belmont, CA, April 6, 2012—Notre Dame de Namur University Department of Theatre and Dance invites you to visit "Our Town," a place where milk is delivered every morning, everyone knows everyone else's business, and people grow up, get married or don't, and die. This is the world of Thornton Wilder's "Our Town," showing at the NDNU Theatre April 13–22.

Wilder's three-act play examines the lives of the citizens of a small town in the early 20th century, beginning with their daily lives and later delving into their relationships and mortality. Special to the NDNU production, "Our Town" becomes Belmont, California with projected images provided by the Belmont Historical Society.

In recognition of Belmont, "our town," Belmont residents are being offered a special admission price of $1.00. All residents are eligible to purchase tickets for any performance when they present proof of residency in Belmont.

"Our Town" is directed by Bruce Williams. Production staff includes Scenic Designer R. Dutch Fritz, Costume Designer Barbara Kassal, Lighting Designer Jennifer Salmeron, Projection Image and Sound Designer and Master Electrician William Springhorn, Music and Choral Director Larry Rice, Stage Manager John Ballas, Make Up Designer Jennifer Earlywine and Properties Designer Mary Hill.
