Little Dipper Theatre presents ‘Our Town’ production in Fort Langley

Various dates from Feb. 29 to March 10

Showing at the Fort Langley Community Hall, Langley-based Little Dipper Theatre will be presenting ‘Our Town’ starting Thursday, Feb. 29.

As the title suggests, ‘Our Town’ by Thornton Wilder is a play about the whole community, but it centres on the lives of George Gibbs and Emily Webb, played by Carson Walliser and Yasmin D’Oshun.

Through their love and loss, humour and vulnerability, their story remains as relevant and moving now as it was when it was first produced in 1938.

Langley resident Jordan Ravensbergen is a new producer with the theatre, and said rehearsals left everyone feeling lighter and calmer.

“When I joined the producer team I felt really aligned with the company’s desire to delight audiences, while also giving them something to think about beyond simply watching a show. Our Town is the perfect blend for this,” she said.

With its use of minimal scenery and props, ‘Our Town’ – directed by Larisse Campbell – focuses on the seemingly insignificant but also remarkable moments of life.

“It’s a beautiful reminder to slow down and be present, to be grateful for the people and things around you,” Campbell said.

Ravensbergen added that audiences will be drawn to the “charming small-town feel” of the play and be “pleasantly surprised by its exploration of larger themes that affect us all.”

The play runs for two hours and 45 minutes, including two intermissions.

It officially kicks-off with a “pay what you can” preview on Thursday, Feb. 29, and then has various dates and times until March 10.

Tickets can be purchased online at littledippertheatre.com.

The Fort Langley Community Hall is located at 9167 Glover Rd.

Little Dipper Theatre Company was launched in 2022 by Langley resident Nicole Shannon.
