Grand Rapids Civic Theatre has auditions today and tomorrow for the much beloved play, Our Town. From Civic’s website:
October 15 – 30, 2010
Follow the Webb and Gibbs families of Grover’s Corners, NH., in Thorton Wilder’s theatre masterpiece. Each scene describes the stages of life; love, marriage and death, as the narrator explains. “The date is May 7, 1901. Three years pass before the next act, Love and Marriage. It’s July 1904 and nature’s been pushin’ and contrivin’ in all ways. Before ya know it, its 1913. Horses are gettin’ rarer, but not a whole lot changes in Grover’s Corners. Even in the new part of the cemetery they’re growing indifferent to what’s goin’ on. The dead don’t stay interested in the living people for very long. Gradually they get weaned away.”
