The Greater Grand Forks Community Theatre is seeking up to 50 actors, including youth, adults, and families, to perform as in the World Peace Pageant, part of the Greenway Takeover Festival on Sept. 15, hosted by HB Sound & Light.

Be part of this unique event that celebrates our shared humanity.

Our motto: We are many, and we are ONE.
We have partnered with 16 different local businesses and organizations and seven local artists. More than 130 volunteers have created 50 paper mache masks and now we need actors to wear them in the show, which includes a 1 1/2 story puppet.
