Auditions for Guilford Center Stage's fall production


A final round of actor auditions will be held for the October production of "A Battle of Wits" at Guilford Center Stage. Two sessions of auditions will be held: on Tuesday, June 14, from 6 to 8 p.m., and Saturday, June 18 from 10 a.m. to noon, at Broad Brook Grange, 3940 Guilford Center Road.

The play is the only known extant work by Charles W. Henry, born in Guilford in 1850, and one of the two principal scenic theater curtain painters of northern New England during the heyday of the genre from 1890 to 1940. William Stearns will direct the production, which will be performed on Columbus Day Weekend.
