The Walpole Players was founded thirty years ago, and had its first production staged for Old Home Days 1987. That first play, ‘George Washington Slept Here’, by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, will again be presented to the community by the 2017 Walpole Players the last two weekends in June during Walpole’s Old Home Days celebrations.
To fill the cast of 9 males (including one teenager) and 8 females, auditions will be held in the Helen Miller Theater in Walpole on Thursday, March 30, and Friday, March 31 at 6:30 pm. Rehearsals will begin after Easter.
The story follows Newton Fuller, who, in the 1940s, moves his family from the city to rural Pennsylvania and an old farm. The problems that ensue involve endless repairs, disagreeable neighbors, troublesome guests, a supposedly rich uncle, and many more side-tickling adventures.
No preparation is required to audition. For additional information contact co-directors Tara Sad 603 756-4861 or Ray Boas 603 756-4545.
