Stage 284 Auditions

Stage 284 is thrilled to announce auditions for Our Town! 

“Described by Edward Albee as “the greatest American play ever written,” Our Town presents the small town of Grover’s Corners in three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage” and “Death and Eternity.” Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, the play depicts the simple daily lives of 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. Thornton Wilder’s final word on how he wanted his play performed is an invaluable addition to the American stage and to the libraries of theatre lovers internationally.”

This production will be directed by the fabulous Cassie Foote who joined the Stage 284 family this Summer. We are looking for a multigenerational cast of storytellers to bring this classic play to life.
