Everyman Rep gets grantOpen auditions Feb. 7
Rockport — The Everyman Repertory Theatre has been awarded a $1,000 grant from the Margaret E. Burnham Charitable Trust to help finance its 2013 season. The trust was established to help support nonprofit organizations that are in Maine and serve Maine communities, and 20 percent of its annual distribution goes to the arts. On occasion, the trust will award grants to outstanding organizations that have not applied, based on exemplary service.
Everyman is a registered 501(c)(3) not for profit professional theater company founded by actors, writers, directors, producers and professional administrators who continue to provide their expertise and guidance. The 2013 season opened with a January production of “The Eight: Reindeer Monologues” and will forge ahead with two other main stage productions dealing with the theme of domestic conflict (and its resolution) as well as a series of smaller, collaborative productions.
Everyman will hold auditions for its next show, “The Trip to Bountiful" by Horton Foote, as well as meeting potential actors, stage managers and producers for the rest of the season, Thursday, Feb. 7 at 5:30 p.m. at the Rockport Opera House; for more information, visit everymanrep.org or the troupe’s Facebook page.
