The Rhinebeck Theatre Society is proud to present Inherit the Wind, Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee's classic drama about the Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925.

It's a large cast, non-musical drama with plenty of roles, both speaking and non-speaking - a great opportunity for anyone who has ever wanted to participate in a community theater production to do so.

We hope to see you at AUDITIONS:

August 13 at 1PM, August 14 at 7PM

Callbacks August 15 at 7PM

The show will be presented November 11-20 at The CENTER for Performing Arts in Rhinebeck.
