Cannon Falls is a small town with no live theater, and performances of
any kind are somewhat rare. So when the Cannon Falls High School does
their spring drama it adds a nice touch of culture in the only real
auditorium in the city (located at the high school).
This year the students are putting on a production of “Our Town,” by
Thornton Wilder. The play is set in a tiny New Hampshire town known as
Grover’s Corners in the early 20th Century. This is a charming,
evocative and touching story. And the drama program at Cannon Falls is
actually pretty good, the students do a nice job of staging and
performing by high school standards. In short, this is $8 well spent if
you enjoy live theater.
There will be 4 performances of Our Town this May, Saturday the 12th,
Friday the 18th & Saturday the 19th all at 7:00 p.m. – plus Sunday the
13th at 2:00 p.m. All performances will be at the Cannon Falls High
School Auditorium (820 East Minnesota Street). Tickets are $8 for adults
and may be purchased at the door.
