Set in the French Antilles, this celebratory musical from the Tony Award-winning creators of Ragtime and Seussical combines elements of both Romeo and Juliet and The Little Mermaid. The result is an exhilarating, calypso-tinged story filled with infectious rhythms, rousing dance and exuberant theatricality. The Tony-nominated hit chronicles the fairy-tale love of a young peasant girl for a handsome young aristocrat -- a love that leads her to save him from death. As the gods debate the star-crossed lovers' fate, the islanders gather to sing and celebrate the hope of the human spirit. Olney's production is directed by Alan Muraoka, proprietor of Sesame Street's Hooper's Store since 1997. Learn More

A progressive play beneath a canapoy os stars in the ruins site in Ellicott City. An excellent venue for this play! The production and performance was more than I expected. I felt as though I was a part of the Town and gained greater insight to the characters because of the sudiences participation in the "movesable" aspects.
Our Town is also something of a ghost story, with the last act set in a graveyard whose inhabitants either pity or are indifferent to those left behind, and whose most recent arrival is allowed to relive a day from her past. Perhaps the scene will inspire a sighting of Annie Van Derlot, the ghost of a former PFI resident who died of pneumonia during a harsh winter. Such sightings are rumored each year, and patrons are encouraged to bring flashlights for their own comfort and security.
