On July 16th at 10:30am we had our first Community gathering for the Our Town Tyringham Project. The Director, Courtney O'Connor and Producer, Ann Gallo, with help from Marcie Kammel, awaited our first community members. At 10:32 they started to arrive, and by 10:45 we had 16 community members. Lots of great questions and ideas emerged after about an hour. A Movie Night showing of "Our Town" is now being planned, as well as a Fireside Read-through and Wilder Tales, an evening of stories, truths and myths about Thornton Wilder.
Word is spreading around town and folks interested in participating are reaching out. It's very exciting to know that Tyringham is open and willing to take on this community-based theatre project.
