The director is looking for:
1 female and 1 male for the roles of Laura Wingfield and Jim O’Connor.

Laura Wingfield -  Amanda’s daughter and Tom’s older sister. She has a slight limp, but views it as much worse. Twenty-three years old and painfully shy, she has largely withdrawn from the outside world and devotes herself to old records and her collection of glass figurines.

Jim O’Connor -  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 success.

No preparation needed.  Sides will be provided for actors prior to auditions.  Side will be posted on the call board just outside of the faculty offices.
