Audition Notice 2018

 

Auditions 2018 season

The Glass Menagerie

By Tennessee Williams

Directed by Tony Junor

The plot

The Glass Menagerie is a drama and a memory play. These are really the memories of the narrator, Tom Wingfield. Tom is a character in the play, which is set in St. Louis in 1937. He is the son of Amanda. He lives and provides for his mother and sister Laura. Their father, ran off years ago and, except for one postcard, has not been heard from since.

Amanda, who was originally from a genteel Southern family, regales her children frequently with tales of her idyllic youth and the scores of suitors who once pursued her. She is disappointed that Laura, who wears a brace on her leg and is painfully shy, does not attract any gentlemen callers. She enrolls Laura in a business college, hoping that she will make her own and the family’s fortune through a business career.

It is Amanda who has the idea to get Laura a gentleman caller and enlists Tom to find one for his sister.

CAKE-WALK

By Colleen Curran

Directed by Laura Wilde

A small-town Canada Day Celebration would not be complete without the usual Pet Contest, Air Show and Cake-Walk. Competitions are not always the fun they appear and not everyone plays by the rules. The tension rises in the small contestant’s waiting room as the moment of judging approaches.
