THE GLASS MENAGERIE
by Tennessee Williams
directed by James J. Christy

October 28 – November 23, 2014

In Tennessee Williams’ shattering classic, an aging Southern Belle longs for her youth and dreams of a better life for her children. Her restless son Tom—a would–be poet and the story’s narrator—gets swept up in his mother’s funny and heartbreaking schemes to find his painfully shy sister, Laura, a husband.

Seeking:

Amanda Wingfield:
Mother of two adult children: Tom and Laura.

Laura Wingfield:
Six years out of high school. Incredibly shy and introverted. She fixates on her collection of glass figurines.

Tom Wingfield:
The poetic, frustrated son who works at a mindless warehouse job, supporting his family after his father left home for good. He also serves as the play’s narrator.

Jim O’Connor:
The gentleman caller who has dinner with the Wingfields. He is described as a “nice, ordinary young man.”

UNNECESSARY FARCE
by Paul Slade Smith
directed by David Bradley

February 24 – March 22, 2015

Two cops. Three crooks. Eight doors. Go. In a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant, while in the room next-door, two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But there's some confusion as to who's in which room, who's being videotaped, who's taken the money, who's hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes.

Seeking:

Eric Sheridan:
Male, 30’s. A police officer. A bookish, even-keeled guy who finds himself completely out of his element.

Billie Dwyer:
Female, 20’s/30’s. A police officer, Eric’s partner. Excitable and entirely unthreatening, she seemingly lacks every skill necessary for police work.

Karen Brown:
Female, 30’s. An accountant who has always taken pride in her accountant-like, professional demeanor – until this morning.

Mayor Meekly
Role is CAST. Male, 50’s to 70’s. An Innocent, with a capital i. An affable, gentle fellow – not too quick on the pick-up.

Agent Frank:
Male, 20’s to 50’s. The head of Security at Town Hall, and, frankly, the wrong man for the job. Though he presents a gruff exterior, he is frequently a man frightened by his own shadow.

Todd:
Male, 20’s to 50’s. Speaks with a pronounced Scottish accent. A professional hit man. Cool, quiet, and perceptive when at his best, but more frequently angry – and the angrier he becomes, the thicker his accent gets.

Mary Meekly:
Female, 50’s to 70’s. The Mayor’s wife. Small in stature and unfailingly sweet.
