The Fall Play returns this week to RB.  This year, the Fine Arts department will be putting on Our Town by Thornton Wilder.  In selecting the play, director Diane Marelli had to consider the size of the cast, the available budget, and the time available to prepare for and perform the play.

Our Town is set in the fictional town of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire.  The story follows average townspeople throughout their lives in the early twentieth century and depicts their every day life.

After the failure of the 2011 educational fund referendum, the school board cut back on productions, eliminating the Fall Play and putting the Spring Musical on an every-other-year schedule.  Both have now been returned to regular annual production.

“We wanted students to experience both,” said Interim Principal Kristin Smetana.

Auditions were held in September.  The play will go on stage from November 6 to 8.  Show times will be 7 p.m. on opening night, and 7:30 on the following two nights in the Main Auditorium.
