HALLOWELL — The Gaslight Theater will hold auditions for “The Chalk Garden” by Enid Bagnold at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 4 and 5, in the City Hall auditorium.

Needed are two males and seven females for this production, directed by Laura Graham.

This psychological chamber piece explores the secret world of childhood through the prism of a dyed-in-the-wool British dowager, Mrs. St. Maugham, and her precocious and equally eccentric granddaughter Laurel. When enigmatic Miss Madrigal is hired as household companion and manager, the two finally meet their match.
