Walpole Players casting ‘Tourists Accommodated’
WALPOLE. N.H. -- The Walpole Players are holding auditions for "Tourtists Accommodated," a play "based on some scenes from present-day summer life in Vermont," written around 1930 by Dorothy Canfield Fisher "out of experiences, cheerful and otherwise, of her neighbors in the north district of Arlington, Vermont."
In this gentle comedy, the audience finds a Vermont family taking in summer tourists to raise money to send their daughter to teaching college.
Auditions will be held Friday, March 1, at 6:30 p.m., and Saturday, March 2, at 2 p.m., at the Walpole Town Hall.
Rehearsals for the show, which will be presented the first two weekends in May, will begin on March 10. The cast includes seven males and 12 females.
Because most scenes are short, rehearsals will be arranged to minimize mandatory attendance until the last month or so before the curtain goes up in May. If you cannot make either of the audition times, or have any additional questions, visit www.thewalpoleplayers.org, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call Ray at 603-756-4545.
