MIDLAND, Mich. – Center Stage Theatre of Midland Center for the Arts announces open auditions on Oct. 26 at 6 p.m. and Oct. 27 at 1 p.m. for its January 2019 production of Anton Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard.” Auditions will take place at Midland Center for the Arts, 1801 W. Saint Andrews Road. Auditionees may attend either date, and should view the audition packet and fill out the online audition form at

Casting is for 7 men and 5 women. Performance dates are Jan. 12 – 20, 2019. Directed by Keely Stanley Bohn.

Chekhov’s final play is a portrait of a family on the brink of social change in Tsarist Russia. Refusing to acknowledge that their estate is about to be sold out from under their well-shot feet, the aristocratic Gayev family laments over old times and lost chances, all the while turning a blind eye to the new social class that’s waiting at the gate.
