Open Auditions for Tri-Town's
Production of "What Got Me Through,"
Monday, August 10 from 3 to 8 p.m.
at Chester Meeting House
Tri-Town Youth Services, in collaboration with Community Performance International, will be holding local auditions for non-union actors for their original production, 'What Got Me Through,'   on Monday, Aug. 10 from 3 to 8 p.m. at Chester Meeting House.
'What Got Me Through'   tells the stories of tri-town's own residents--their challenges, victories, heartbreaks and resilience--in a one-act play that takes us through the lives of a Vietnam veteran experiencing PTSD, an unwed mother during the tumultuous post-war years of the fifties, survivors of fires--both physical and those that burn from within--as well as the deep, close bonds of friendship and family that hold fast through generations.
'What Got Me Through'   is the uplifing tale of tri-town's ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Auditions are open to actors of all ages, children and adults. Final performances will be at Chester Meeting House on Oct. 2, 3, and 4. Call Gail or Cate at Tri-Town Youth Services, 860-526-3600 for more information.
