First Gulf War Exhibit

This exhibit remembers the Persian Gulf War of 1990-1991 when the United States led the most diverse coalition of nations in recent history in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Shield to oust Iraqi forces that had invaded the Middle East nation of Kuwait. The government of the State of Kuwait funded this exhibit to honor the 75,000 men and women, and their units stationed in North Carolina, who served and sacrificed to liberate Kuwait. Those soldiers honored include the bases of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, U.S. Army Fort Liberty (Bragg), and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.

Auditions for Anne of Green Gables

In conjunction with the Grange exhibit, the Wayne County Museum invites you to another agricultural town called Avonlea as they perform a radio play of the childhood classic Anne of Green Gables.

It tells the story of stern Marilla and her warm-hearted brother Matthew who hope to adopt a boy to work on their farm. But the orphanage sends young, befreckled Anne by mistake, and their lives will never be the same. Her warmth and wit affect everyone around her – even, eventually, the cold Marilla. We follow Anne through her rebellious years, her transformation into a young woman, and her romantic pairing with Gilbert. This play has been charming audiences around the world.

But we need several actors to bring this story to life.

Auditions at the Wayne County Museum on November 7 at 7:00. Sides will be available at auditions, along with audition sheets. If you cannot make the date, we will also accept video auditions. Please contact Heath Radford at if interested or there are any audition questions.
