ActorsNET, a non-profit theater group in Morrisville, Pennsylvania, is holding open auditions for its spring production of George M. Cohan’s “Seven Keys to Baldpate.”

Auditions will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, January 11, and 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, January 14, at the Heritage Center, 635 North Delmorr Avenue in Morrisville.
