RUMFORD — Paper Moon Players has announced auditions for “It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” by Joe Landry will be held at 6 p.m. Sunday and Monday, Oct. 19 and 20, at 49 Franklin in the Mystic Theater.

All roles are open. A sample of the script is available at Rehearsals will be held Monday and Tuesday evenings.

Performances will be held at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 19 and 20, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 21.
