HOOLIGAN Theatre Company will present Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, “Our Town.” HOOLIGAN is topping off its 10thseason with this timeless piece, which will run for one weekend only from May 29-31 at Jan Popper Theater in Schoenberg Hall at UCLA.

In the small town of Grover’s Corners, two quintessential American families, the Gibbs and the Webbs, grow up side by side. They experience all of life’s major milestones: everything from love and marriage to illness and death. Wilder’s unique, meta-theatrical style allows the audience to feel immersed in the lives of the characters, while the minimalist nature of the show lets the audience ponder with clarity what it means to be human.

HOOLIGAN Theatre Company is a student-run, non-profit organization that provides professional theatre experiences for college students of all majors in order to enrich the theatre community. Past sold-out performances include The Wedding Singer, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Legally Blonde the Musical, and Fiddler on the Roof. In addition, HOOLIGAN operates an ArtsE department, through which UCLA students teach theater in local middle and high schools. Since 2006, HOOLIGAN has worked to raise artistic awareness and generate a larger thespian art community in the Greater Los Angeles area through performance and educational programs.
