In partnership with the Stillwater Public Library’s Two Books, One Community reading program, Town and Gown will present “The Great Gatsby” in April.  The community-wide reading program will feature many great programs throughout Stillwater, and this production by Town and Gown is sure to be one of the highlights.

“The Great Gatsby” is based on the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, passionately pursues the elusive Daisy Buchanan. Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into their world of obsession, greed and danger. The great American story of love, loss, and excess is presented in splendid detail. Experience the emotion of the roaring twenties and find yourself longing to see it again. Directed by Cody Whittenburg and Sharyl Pickens.
