Bedford Off Broadway auditions
Friday, February 28, 2014
Bedford Off Broadway Community Theater announces auditions for “The Glass Menagerie” by Tennessee Williams and directed by Mike Wood. Auditions will be held at 7:15 p.m. March 10-11 at the Bedford Old Town Hall, 3 Meetinghouse Road. Show dates are May 9-10 and May 16-17 with a matinee on May 18.
Amanda Wingfield, a faded Southern Belle, holds tight to her two children: Tom, an aspiring poet, and Laura, his painfully shy sister. After receiving pressure from his mother, Tom brings home a gentleman caller to meet his sister. What follows is one of the most compelling and heartbreaking stories ever told. A classic of the American stage, Tennessee Williams’ deeply personal and haunting “memory play” is a profound tale of love and loss, illusion and escape.
Audition requirements: Please prepare a 1-2 minute dramatic monologue, preferably. Said monologue preferred to be from a Tennessee Williams or similar-style play. Cold reads will follow. Please be prepared with a southern accent.
