Play Auditions in Guilford

Guilford Center Stage announces open auditions for its October premiere of To Their Appointed End: the One-Act Plays of Jean Stewart McLean.  There will be two sessions of auditions: Saturday, May 20, from 10 am to Noon, and Wednesday, May 24, from 6 to 8 pm, at Broad Brook Grange in Guilford.  William Stearns directs the production.

There are a number of roles for men and women from about age 20 and up.  No reservation is needed, and auditioners may arrive anytime during the 2-hour session.  Those trying out may prepare or bring a dramatic reading, or a passage from a play of their choosing, of about one minute in length.   Director Stearns will also have passages from the one-acts available for those who wish to try some dialogue.  Stage helpers are welcome, also.

Book Talk at Brooks Library: The Life We Got: Losing Sight and Gaining Vision

Save the Date for a Book Talk at Brooks Memorial Library. We hope that you will join us on Wednesday, May 24th at 7 pm in the Meeting Room to meet Neil and Alison Taylor, who co-authored their memoir called "The Life We Got: Losing Sight and Gaining Vision."

Neil was a young teacher and athlete when the discovery of a brain tumor catapulted him into a life of blindness. With his dreams shattered and the future uncertain he began, with unwavering support from his family, one step at a time, rebuilding a life worth living and worth celebrating. A monumental step in his journey toward acceptance and wholeness was the writing of this memoir with his mother Alison.

Tavernier Chocolate Promotion Mention During Conan Monologue

Brattleboro was sort-of mentioned on national TV Monday night when Conan O'Brian mentioned a Vermont candy maker (Tavernier) giving out chocolate bars with golden tickets.

I won't ruin the joke for you, but it is funny because it rings very true. Charlie got a chocolate factory.
