Casting call

TOTS seeks actors for fall production of ‘Bad Seed’

Theater Off The Square is announcing a casting call for its upcoming production of the play “Bad Seed.”

The play is written by Maxwell Anderson, from William March’s novel. It is produced by Special Arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, directed by Wally Jones.

When one of Rhoda’s schoolmates is mysteriously drowned at a picnic, Mrs. Penmark is alarmed, for the boy who drowned was the one who had won the penmanship medal that Rhoda felt she deserved. This is a thriller.
