'Our Town' auditions at Long Wharf coming up on Monday

Long Wharf Theatre is looking for individuals to join the cast as the townspeople of fictional Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire in its upcoming production of Thornton Wilder’s classic, Our Town.

Auditions will take place Monday, Aug. 18, from 11:30-1 p.m. and 4-7 p.m. Applicants only need to bring a photograph of what they look like right now. No previous acting experience is necessary. The audition will be a meeting with Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein. The roles are open to every age, race, and gender.

“The world of Our Town has changed since Thornton Wilder first wrote the play,” Edelstein said. “Our production will endeavor to capture what our town is today.”

The commitment will be attendance at the final dress rehearsal Tuesday, Oct. 7, two additional rehearsals at a time to be determined, and a single eight show week. Performances take place Oct. 8 to Nov. 9.
