The Stage Company

Auditions: Our Town by Thorton Wilder

Our Town Auditions

The Stage Company will hold auditions for its fifth and final production of its thirty-seventh season, Our Town, by Thorton Wilder, on Monday, April 29th and Tuesday April 30th from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the East Theater of the Varsity Center with callbacks on Wednesday May 1st.

Our Town is meta-theatrical play written in 1938 by American playwright Thornton Wilder. It tells the story of the fictional American small town of Grover’s Corners between 1901 and 1913 through the everyday lives of its citizens. Please note, this is going to be a darker take on the play than might be expected.

Actors are encouraged to come prepared with a 90 second monologue of their choice. There will be sides from the script for cold reads as well. Those auditioning, please bring with you a complete list of any potential conflicts you may have from now until showtime that would prevent you from attending rehearsals. Please be up front and open about your conflicts.
