High School Seniors Direct & Produce “Our Town”

You are invited to see the play “Our Town” by Thornton Wilder the first two weekends in March – directed and produced by High School seniors Olivia Hagen and Grace Mierkey!

OAKHURST – “Our Town” is a three-act play by American playwright Thornton Wilder which won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play tells the story of small-town life, much like our own town of Oakhurst, between 1901 and 1913. Many High School students have read this play for High School English class.

The directors and producers, Glacier High School senior Olivia Hagen and Yosemite High senior Grace Mierkey, have been in many local productions since a young age. They have been working on organizing this play since 2021 and would absolutely love for you to come and see this wonderful production. The amazing cast is made up of local talent as well as talented students from Mountain Home School, Glacier High School, and Endeavor Charter School. Teacher Brandon Mallard and Principal Eric Hagen are also in the production.

This show is not being sponsored by Western Sierra Charter Schools or any other local organization. Olivia has dreamed of directing this play since she first read the book in Mrs. Friesen’s 9th grade English class and is excited to see it come to life.
