Our Town is a 1938 metatheatrical three-act play by American playwright Thornton Wilder. It tells the story of the fictional American small town of Grover’s Corners between 1901 and 1913 through the everyday lives of its citizens.
Throughout, Wilder uses metatheatrical devices, setting the play in the actual theatre where it is being performed. The main character is the stage manager of the theatre who directly addresses the audience, brings in guest lecturers, fields questions from the audience, and fills in playing some of the roles. The play is performed without a set on a mostly bare stage. With a few exceptions, the actors mime actions without the use of props.
The Bellevue Little Theatre is an all volunteer organization. As such, we maintain an ‘equal opportunity’ policy for volunteer recruitment of both board and all production and onstage positions. Auditions are always open to the general public with the same ‘equal opportunity’ policy observed. All roles are open, with the exception of an occasional role which will be precast. Inf this is the case it will always be noted in the audition notice.
