The Glass Menagerie

by Tennessee Williams

Directed by Grant Purdy

Audition Call

March 19th at 5pm and March 21st at 8pm at Warrandyte Mechanics’ Institute Hall.

Performances June 16th to July 1st

In June and July Warrandyte Theatre Company will stage this classic American play portraying a timeless story about family.

WMIAA members and others are invited to audition for the four parts.

Tom Wingfield: Tom is the storyteller, and his memories are those that are portrayed in the play. Tom works at a shoe warehouse to support his family but is frustrated by his job and aspires to be a poet. He struggles to write, all the while being sleep-deprived and irritable.

Laura Wingfield: A shy, fragile young lady with an inferiority complex, that isolates her from the outside world. She has created a world of her own, symbolized by her collection of glass figurines.

Amanda Wingfield: A faded Southern belle abandoned by her husband, while trying to raise her two children under harsh financial conditions. Amanda is a vigorous, energetic woman who has kept her family together through the dint of her energies.

Jim O’Connor: Jim was a popular athlete and actor during his days at High School, but subsequent years have been less kind to him.
