Auditions set for MCT’s ‘Our Town’

Muskegon Civic Theatre has scheduled auditions for its 2020 production of playwright Thornton Wilder’s famous “Our Town.”

Tryouts will be 7 p.m. Dec. 9 and 10, on the third floor of the Hilt Building in the Frauenthal Center, 427 W. Western.

If needed, callbacks will be 7 p.m. Dec. 11.

Director Jim Query will have auditionees read from the script.

All roles are open to actors of any race or ethnicity.

Considered to be an American theatre classic, “Our Town” has been called “the greatest American play ever written.” It tells a universal story of small-town America, celebrating the beauty of life set against a backdrop of daily rituals. Set in the fictional town of Grover’s Corners, N.H., it underscores humanity while its characters provide glimpses into the concerns of all people everywhere.

“Our Town” will run Feb. 14-29, with a possible 11 a.m. matinees on Feb. 19. Rehearsals will begin Jan. 2, 2020, and run Mondays through Thursdays.
