Community Theatre of Terre Haute will stage auditions for “The Constant Wife” by W. Somerset Maugham at 7 p.m. on Jan. 2 and 3. There are parts for four men and five women, all in the 30-70 age range. The play will be performed Feb. 15-17 and 22-24. Veteran Community Theatre director and actor Sandra Groves will direct the production.
The comedic drama was written by Maugham and debuted in 1926 with Ethel Barrymore, great-aunt of actress Drew Barrymore, in the lead role. Recently, Lynn Redgrave played the title role on Broadway. This sparkling comedy of modern manners espouses that so long as a wife is supported by her husband she must remain faithful, but when the tables are turned freedom becomes the currency with which both must pay. Audiences and critics alike have found Maugham’s views of marriage and infidelity witty, charming, light-hearted and enormously entertaining.
Auditions will be at the theater, 1431 S. 25th St. For more information visit www.ctth.org or email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
