Next up for the Sandy River Players will be the 3-act play “Icebound”, which was written in 1923 by Maine writer Owen Davis. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama that year while appearing on Broadway. Later, the play returned to Maine to be performed at Lakewood Theatre, where Davis had close connections.
The story tells of a family in Veazie, Maine, who have many issues with one another, especially about who should inherit their mother’s farm and money. There are roles for 12 actors: 1 young boy. 1 mature teenage girl, 5 men and 5 women of varying ages. Some roles are small but most are quite large and will require a significant commitment.
Auditions will be held at the SRP Playhouse on Starling St. in West Farmington on Thursday, Jan. 3 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturday, Jan. 5 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Dates for the performance are tentatively set for March 1-3, to be presented at the West Farmington Grange Hall.
