Players Club Brings Home ‘Our Town’

SWARTHMORE — The Players Club of Swarthmore will present Thornton Wilder’s American classic, “Our Town,” opening Sept. 16 and 17 and running for three consecutive weekends.

Thornton Wilder revolutionized American theater with this celebration of some ordinary days in Grover’s Corners, N.H., at the turn of the 20th century.

Featuring former TV and radio host “Harvey in the Morning” in the role of The Stage Manager, the production is directed by Ellen Wilson Dilks.

Performances are: Sept. 16, 17, 22, 23, 24, 29, 30 and Oct. 1 at 8 p.m., with 2 p.m. performances on Sept. 18 and Sept. 25.

There will also be special school performances at 10 a.m. on Sept. 23 and Sept. 30.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $14 for seniors and $8 for students (with valid ID). PCS is running a food drive to benefit PhilAbundance during the run of “Our Town.”

Bring a non-perishable item and get $1 off your ticket price. Five items earns a half-price ticket. Pre-Order online via www.pcstheater.or or at the box office up to one hour prior to curtain.

The Players Club of Swarthmore, an all-volunteer organization, is embarking on its 101st Season of live theatre. Located at 614 Fairview Road—just off of Route 320, the theatre is only minutes from I-95 and Route 476, and the R3 Regional Rail Line is within walking distance (at the edge of the Swarthmore College campus). And buses run along Route 320 from the Springfield Mall, only 2 miles away.

The theatre is fully handicapped accessible and there is plenty of free off-street parking.
