WILLIAMSVILLE Rock River Players Host Open Auditions for May Production of "The Front Page": Set in 1928 Chicago, this period (yet timely) comedy whirls in a world of yellow journalism, corrupt politicians, and assorted silliness, with rapid-fire, streetwise dialogue. Originally written for the stage by two former Chicago reporters, there have been many film adaptations, notably "The Front Page" (1931, 1974) and "His Girl Friday" (1940). The play was revived on Broadway led by Nathan Lane in 2016. See the original script: The Rock River Players will do this version with the 2016 modifications. 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. Attend at least half of either session. Through Wednesday, November 6. Williamsville Hall, Dover Rd. Dir. Bahman Mahdavi: 802-365-7635,
