On Sunday, Sept. 28, there will be tryouts for two original one-act musicals about Vineyard history:

Nancy Luce, The Musical was originally produced in the summer of 2007 as part of Children’s Theatre Workshop summer program, with a book by Dana Anderson and music by Linda Berg.

An Island of Women, Life on the Vineyard, 1850-1852, written by E. St. John Villard, takes place at a time when much of the male population was at sea whaling. Philip Dietterich has written the music and lyrics.

Ms. Villard will also direct both plays. The production will open Thursday, Nov. 13 at the Katharine Cornell Theatre and will play for two weekends.

Tryouts will be held from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Christ United Methodist Church, 89 Williams street in Vineyard Haven. Both plays have multi-generational casts, with roles for both children and adults.

This is an Island Theatre Workshop, Inc. production. For further information, please call Ms. Villard at 508-627-2529.
