With sets that rivaled Broadway and dynamic, emotive singers, Town & Gown Summer Theatre’s musical “Little Women” transported the audience to the Civil War era for the evening, entertaining them all the while.
You could call the Town & Gown Players theatre trailblazers. When Fairmont State launched its summer theatre program in the summer of 1960, it was the first of its kind in West Virginia.
Jo Ann Lough and Lawrence Wallman of the Fairmont State (then College) Department of Speech and Dramatics led the launch of the Players that began with one production that year, the hit British comedy “The Reluctant Debutante,” directed by Lough.
