Peterborough Players is honored to welcome author Howard Sherman as guest expert at the next Playgroup, taking place online on March 26th and April 2nd at 7:30 pm. Howard’s popular new book, Another Day’s Begun: Thornton Wilder’s Our Town in the 21st Century explores the impact of this enduring classic. The book has recently been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, American Theatre Magazine and NPR’s Weekend Edition, among others.
Session 1 on March 26th will feature Howard Sherman discussing his book and Our Town, in general, with Associate Artistic Director Tom Frey. In session 2 on April 2nd, they will be joined by guest artists Tracey Conyer Lee (Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill at Portland Stage Company) and Aliah Whitmore (Mahida’s Extra Key to Heaven at the Players) to further illuminate the impact of Our Town and read select scenes.
Sessions are free, but registration is required, and space is limited. Those who would like to participate in these special events can email email@example.com and indicate in the subject line which workshops they’d like to see. (For example: Playgroup – Beirne and Design, Playgroup – All) A reservation confirmation email will be received shortly after, and a second email with log-on instructions for the online sessions will follow a few days prior to the event in question.
