From Feb. 9-10, Granville Little Theatre will conduct open auditions for a production of “Our Town,” scheduled to run April 18-21 at Oxford City Hall Auditorium. Gary Owens, whose previous directorial experience includes “The Papers” and “You Can’t Take It With You,” will direct.

Those auditioning will read from a script. Everyone is welcome to tryout, including adults. Understudy positions will also be available to anyone wishing to work behind the scenes — direction, stage management, etc. — instead of acting.

Written by American Playwright Thornton Wilder, this drama, in three acts, explores the everyday existence of ordinary citizens in Grover’s Corners, N.H., during the early 20th century. It focuses on George and Emily, two teenagers who marry after falling in love.
