Directed by: Casey Eubank
Production dates: July 21-31, 2022
We’re in Mineola County where the Community Theatre is producing ROMEO AND JULIET. Even though the cast members don’t have their lines memorized, the set isn’t finished, and a dog keeps barking offstage, they’re gonna give it a go! There’s just an awe-inspirin’ performance given by Mildred Carson (who doesn’t look fifty) as Juliet. There’s great chemistry between Mildred and Bubba Bedford, who is cast as Romeo. And, lest we forget, Naomi Farkle Carson, who provided the additional dialogue.
Auditions for Wichita Community Theatre’s upcoming production of THORNTON WILDER’S OUR TOWN will be held July 9 & 10 at 2:30 at the theatre.
The address is 258 N. Fountain, Wichita, KS, 67208.
Performance dates are September 8 – 17, 2022.
Described by Edward Albee as “the greatest American play ever written,” OUR TOWN follows the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre – die. Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, OUR TOWN depicts the small town of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire in the early 1900’s.
There are roles for men and women of all ages and ethnicities.
