The Second Street Players of Milford will present Thornton Wilder’s award winning play “Our Town” February 11-20 at their Riverfront Theatre, 2 S. Walnut Street in Milford. One of the most frequently staged American plays, it has been described as an unconventional work because of it use of minimal  scenery and props and relies on pantomime and sound effects to convey the actions.  Thornton Wilder presented the play in this way so that the audience was forced to concentrate on the characters and the themes.

Director Jeff Haslow of Rehoboth Beach  has assembled a cast of over 20 people to not only perform  the play but provide all sound effects and music live on stage. In fact the cast rarely leaves the stage for the entire performance. The narrator, or as Wilder calls him The Stage Manager is played by veteran actor Doug Friend of Lewes. The Webb family is played by Steve Twilley of Milford, Carol Torrey of Felton, and Carly Jo Hosbach and Ben Wilcox of Milford. The Gibbs family is played by Don McGee of Georgetown, E.J. Panico of Seaford,  Devin Petka of Lewes and Josh Wakeley of Frederica. The rest of the cast includes characters such as the choir director who imbibes too much played by Charlie Meyer, of Lewes, The Milkman, Ben Lonski of Magnolia, and the town gossip played by Susan Newark of Harrington. Ben Wilcox, Carol Torrey, and Susan Newark of Harrington provide the live music on violin, flute, and bassoon.

The shows are on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 PM and Sunday matinees at 3 PM. Tickets are $17 with a $1 discount offered on the matinees for students, senior citizens, and military. Group rates are also available. For more information or to reserve tickets call 302-422-0220.
