Based on Perry’s bestselling book by the same title, this newly released stage version picks up when Perry returns to his childhood town of New Auburn, Wisconsin and joins the volunteer fire and rescue department. This is a sometimes comic, sometimes heartbreaking and always captivating memoir. Population 485 celebrates Middle America and the understanding that one must give of themselves to truly live and be a part of a community.
A true story- Population 485 looks at the questions: What draws a person back home? and What happens when you get there?
