If acting is your thing, we have many opportunities year-round for you to try and make it to the stage!

For our major productions (spring musical, winter and fall plays), auditions are typically held 12-16 weeks before opening night. We also hold auditions for our Family Theatre, summer musical camp, and, periodically, for our On Book! Readers Theatre productions.

Our Town Summary:

Described by Edward Albee as "the greatest American play ever written", Our Town presents the fictional American town of Grover's Corners between 1901 and 1913 through the lives of its citizens. These folks find joy and laughter in the simple, everyday occurrences of meals, school, work, reading, conversation, birth, and death.

In his signature style, Wilder uses metatheatrical devices, setting the play in the theatre where it is being performed. The main character is the Stage Manager who directly addresses the audience, brings in guest lecturers, fields questions, and fills in playing some of the roles. The play is performed without a set on a mostly bare stage. With a few exceptions, the actors mime actions without the use of props.
