One of the most exciting and anticipated aspects of the new IPFW Department of Theatre 2013-14 Subscription Season is a production of Our Town in December, directed by and starring Fort Wayne native Dan Butler.

Butler will direct a contemporary approach to Thornton Wilder’s American classic where audience members will be closely involved in an emotionally unforgettable look at the everyday lives of the people who make up Grover’s Corners.

“Dan has requested to produce this play in our Studio Theatre, or as he refers to the space, ‘the old PIT theatre.’,” explained Department of Theatre Chair John O’Connell. “Not only will he be directing and starring in the production, he also will be inviting many alumni from the ‘PIT’ days to join him. Our expectations are high for audience appeal on this show.”

Butler, best known as Bulldog in the long-running and popular TV sitcom Frasier, brings a fresh and contemporary approach to one of the greatest plays of our time. Thornton Wilder's small New England town of Grover's Corners has never seemed more like the town we live in, as the Fort Wayne audience becomes an integral part of the play performed in the intimate Studio Theatre in Kettler Hall.

A season subscription consists of four (4) flexible tickets for $57 that may be used in any combination for the shows in the season. Subscribers will have the privilege of reserving their tickets to Our Town before tickets are made available to the general public on August 26, 2013.
