Mount Vernon Lisbon Community Theatre (MVLCT) will be having auditions for their production of Middletown by Will Eno on January 15 and 16, 2017.  

The performance dates are March 9-12, 2017.

Middletown is a deeply moving and funny new play exploring the universe of a small American town. As a friendship develops between longtime resident John Dodge and new arrival Mary Swanson, the lives of the inhabitants of Middletown intersect in strange and poignant ways in a journey that takes them from the local library to outer space and points between.

MVLCT is looking for actors as well as technical crew–so if you are interested, please stop by on either night!
