ACT is adding a Play division to our Community Theatre program! These shows are straight plays, or non-musicals, and will be performed in our facility for smaller, more intimate audiences!
We are very excited to announce auditions for our first our first full length play: The Glass Menagerie. This classic Tennessee Williams drama takes place in st. Louis in 1937. Amanda Wingfield is living in turmoil with her two adult children, Tom and Laura, Who both are struggling to live up to the unrealistic expectations their mother has placed on them. But Amanda has high hopes of all of that changing when Tom brings A gentleman caller over for dinner to meet Laura.
Auditions for the glass menagerie will be held at the ACT building On Saturday February 20th. Doors open at 3 PM, the audition will start promptly at 4 PM. The audition will consist of cold reads of sides from the show.
The show will be performed IN PERSON from April 30-May 2, 2021.

Amanda’s daughter and Tom’s older sister. Laura has a bad leg, on which she has to wear a brace, and walks with a limp. Twenty-three years old and painfully shy, she has largely withdrawn from the outside world and devotes herself to old records and her collection of glass figurines.
Tom Wingfield : (Age Range 18-25)
Amanda’s son and Laura’s younger brother. An aspiring poet, Tom works at a shoe warehouse to support the family. He is frustrated by the numbing routine of his job and escapes from it through movies, literature, and alcohol.
Jim O’Connor (Age Range 20 to 30)
An old acquaintance of Tom and Laura. Jim was a popular athlete in high school and is now a shipping clerk at the shoe warehouse in which Tom works. He is unwaveringly devoted to goals of professional achievement and ideals of personal succes
