ELLSWORTH, Maine (WABI) - Do you have what it takes to be Dolly Parton? How about Hank Williams?

The Grand in Ellsworth is seeking auditions for an upcoming Country Music Tribute Show to be held outside at the Woodlawn Museum.

It’s part of the theater’s effort to find new programming that allows people to enjoy live entertainment while staying minimizing the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

Brittany McHatten spoke with The Grand’s executive director Nick Turner to learn more about what he’s looking for in these audition tapes.

Anyone who’s interested should record a two to three minute video of themselves singing a classic country song that embodies the vocal qualities of the original performer. Videos, along with your name, relative experience and contact information should be emailed to

Exact dates are still in the works, but The Grand is planning for shows in September and October.

The Grand is also excited about its upcoming original production, Downeast Shakes! Turner says its a funny take on Shakespeare with a Downeast accent. Downeast Shakes! runs four days in August at Union River Lobster Pot.
