Ashland Contemporary Theatre will hold auditions for its coming productions of 2014 from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, in the Gresham Room of the Ashland library, 410 Siskiyou Blvd. Actors will read scripts from future productions and may bring a head shot and an audition piece.

ACCESS will use a Cover Oregon grant to share information and resources about insurance options available to Jackson County residents.

ACCESS outreach staff will hold town hall meetings to provide information and also will answer questions by phone.

"Although we are not signing people up for insurance through Cover Oregon, our team has been well trained to answer questions and to quickly connect them with local resources if they choose to enroll," ACCESS Support Services Director David Mulig said in a press release.

The first town hall meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. today at the Central Point library, 116 S. Third St.

Other town halls are scheduled for 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31, at the Gold Hill library, 202 Dardanelles St.; 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Rogue River library, 412 E. Main; and 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, at the Ruch library, 7919 Oregon 238.
