"Our Town" is in our town this week.

Kaylyn Engelhardt and Cody Follis (holding hands) portray Emily Webb and George Gibbs in the Lincoln Community High School production of “Our Town.”

Administering the vows at their wedding is Brian Alexander (Stage Manager, standing between couple). Seated guests at the wedding (with backs to camera, left to right) include Jessica Sutton (Mrs. Soames), Trevor Arrington (Mr. Webb, mostly obscured), Greg Harmon (Howie Newsome), Shelby Voyles (Mrs. Webb), Heather Meisenbach (Mrs. Gibbs), Ethan Plumier (Doc Gibbs) and Katie Langdon (Rebecca Gibbs). Witnessing the ceremony are choir members (facing camera, left to right) Tara Shane, Erika White, Elizabeth Jaegle, Lauren Stanfield and Morgan Conrady.

Performances are in the LCHS auditorium Thursday and Saturday, Oct. 16 and 18, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 19, at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at the door.
