Auditions for Titanic & Women’s Jury Plays

Auditions will be held for two upcoming one-act plays on Tuesday February 23rd (6 to 8 p.m.) and Sunday February 28th (3 to 5 p.m.) The production is a project of Guilford Center Stage. Written and directed by local author Michael Nethercott, both works will be premiered in June. “Nocturne Titanica” is a mythological take on the sinking of the Titanic. “The Lace Jury” is based on one of the first all-women juries in the country at the turn of the century. Rehearsals will be largely in May, and the actual performances are Friday June 3, Saturday June 4 (both evening shows), and Sunday June 5 (matinee). Rehearsals and shows take place at the Broad Brook Grange stage in Guilford, VT, about 10 minutes from I-91 Exit 1 Brattleboro. There are almost two dozen roles available, ranging from late teens to 60+. The Titanic play has a mixed cast, and Jury has an all-woman cast of six. Please prepare or bring a dramatic reading within a minute in length. Actors will also be considered for the October play (by Charles W. Henry.) Auditions will take place at the Grange, which is located at 3940 Guilford Center Road. Arrive at any of the scheduled times or call 802-380-2184 or email for further information.


Guilford Pre-Town Meeting Feb. 18


Broad Brook Grange will hold its annual Pre-Town Meeting on Thursday, February 18, 7:00 pm at the Grange hall.

This is the only opportunity for voters to hear details of the articles which will be presented at the Town and School District Meetings, and to meet and discuss issues with the selectboard and school board all in one evening, in advance of Town Meeting.

In addition, candidates for town and school board offices are urged to attend to introduce themselves to the voters.  State law prevents any “campaigning” by candidates at Town Meeting, when an Australian ballot is used, as in this instance.  So this is the only time before the vote for the public to meet and hear the candidates all at once.

Those interested in declaring as a write-in candidate should take this sole opportunity to appear before a group of voters.

Town Meeting itself will be held, as usual, on the first Tuesday of March, which this year is March 1, commencing at 10 am in the gym of the Central School.

Broad Brook Grange is in Guilford Center, 4 miles west of the Country Store.   Refreshments will conclude the evening.
