Artists and Ancestors
A Dramatic Re-enactment & Walking Tour
at Forest Hill Cemetery
Saturday and Sunday
April 17th & 18th at 2 and 3:30 PM
This original production is a collaboration with the Fitchburg Historical Society, and the script is written by award-winning writer Sally Cragin.
Personages included will be Musician/Singing Group Maestro Cyrus Thurston, Artist Sybil Augusta Fairbanks with Artist/Fitchburg Art Museum founder Eleanor Norcross, Stratton Players Founders Helen Stratton and Fay Crocker, Architect H.M. Francis, Sculptor Herbert Adams and his wife, writer/artist Adeline Valentine Adams.
Members of Stratton Players will re-create a number of important, historic personages who were instrumental in establishing the variety of arts that are present in Fitchburg. These ladies and gentlemen lived in the late 1800s through mid-20th century.
Because of the Covid-19 Pandemic and attendance restrictions, our theatre company, now in its 96th consecutive year will finally be able to present an original performance after our 2020-2021 season was postponed.
Performances will be at Forest Hill Cemetery, Fitchburg, Saturday and Sunday, April 17, and 18 at 2 and 3:30 pm. Tickets will be available later in the spring; Reservations required. Audience members will be out of doors, and able to socially distance. Visit Strattonplayers.com for more information about our group.

WE'VE REACHED OUR FIRST FUNDRAISING GOAL!
Thanks to the generosity of our local community theater lover's and assistance from the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund who helped us turn $200K into $400k.
Green Leaf Construction has begun work on the project since early March 2018. We are all excited to begin to have a regular space to work on our sets and store our properties.
Thank you to everyone for continuing to support the Stratton legacy!
