On Friday, Jan. 2, at 6 p.m., the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will offer a guided writing workshop inspired by the works of Alan Shields now on view in the exhibition “Alan Shields: In Motion.” Participants may create short pieces in any form, including stories, poetry, and descriptive writing. The format will be similar to a life drawing class, but with words as the medium.
The cost is $10, free for members, students, and children.
Center Stage at Southampton Cultural Center will hold open auditions for “A Chorus Line” on Jan. 3 and 4, beginning promptly at 5 p.m. both days. Rehearsals will begin immediately following the auditions, and the musical will run from Feb. 26 through March 21. Michael Disher, director of Center Stage, will direct the production. Amanda Borsack Jones will be musical director.
