Fairmont State University’s Town & Gown Theatre and Academy for the Arts will host auditions for two upcoming winter holiday productions, including The Best Christmas Pageant Ever and Jolly Holiday, A Broadway Christmas Revue. Auditions for both children and adults will take place on Tuesday, October 4 and Wednesday, October 5.
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever and Jolly Holiday, A Broadway Christmas Revue, will both run December 8 – 11 in Fairmont State’s Wallman Hall Theatre.
The remaining “Matilda The Musical” performances by the Fairmont State University Town & Gown Players scheduled to take place Thursday, June 23 – Sunday, June 26 have been indefinitely cancelled in observance of the University’s COVID-19 protocols.
Fairmont State University’s Town & Gown Players present “Children of Eden.” From musical theatre greats Stephen Schwartz (“Wicked,” “Godspell”) and John Caird comes a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith.
You could call the Town & Gown Players theatre trailblazers. When Fairmont State launched its summer theatre program in the summer of 1960, it was the first of its kind in West Virginia.
Jo Ann Lough and Lawrence Wallman of the Fairmont State (then College) Department of Speech and Dramatics led the launch of the Players that began with one production that year, the hit British comedy “The Reluctant Debutante,” directed by Lough.
