Audition Description

Theatre Memphis Auditions

"The Member of the Wedding"
Directed by Irene Crist

Synopsis:
The novel takes place over a few days in late August. It tells the story of 12-year-old tomboy Frankie Addams, who feels disconnected from the world; in her words, an "unjoined person." Frankie's mother died when she was born, and her father is a distant, uncomprehending figure. Her closest companions are the family's African American maid, Berenice Sadie Brown, and her six-year-old cousin, John Henry West. She has no friends in her small Southern town and dreams of going away with her brother and his bride-to-be on their honeymoon in the Alaskan wilderness.
The novel explores the psychology of the three main characters and is more concerned with evocative settings than with incident. Frankie does, however, have a brief and troubling encounter with a soldier. Her hopes of going away are disappointed and, her fantasy destroyed, a short coda reveals how her personality has changed. It also recounts the fate of John Henry West, and Berenice Sadie Brown's future plans.

"The Heiress"
Directed by Tony Isbell

Synopsis:
Catherine Sloper is a plain, painfully shy woman whose emotionally detached father makes no secret of his disappointment in her. When she meets the charming Morris Townsend, she immediately is taken by the attention that he lavishes upon her, attention she so desperately seeks from her father. Catherine falls madly in love with Morris and they plan to marry. Catherine's father believes Morris is courting Catherine only to get her inheritance and threatens to disinherit her if she marries him. Catherine does not care, and plans to elope with Morris but not before telling him about her father's decision. On the night they are to elope, Catherine eagerly waits at home for Morris to come and take her away, but he never arrives.

    The novella's protagonist. Frankie Addams is a precocious and gregarious twelve year-old girl in the throes of adolescence. She is in a state of limbo between the innocent, sheltered days of her childhood, and the more worldliness of young adulthood. As a result of this rift, she is disconnected from everyone around her and spends the novella searching for a way to meld with other people. (The Member of the Wedding)

    Though she is over forty years old, she is still an avidly sexual woman who is never shy about having a good time with the various men who come through her life. In fact, by the end of the novella, she considers marrying her fifth husband. She is a no-nonsense type who doesn't put up with Frankie's difficult and moody behavior. She acts as a voice of reason, giving readers some better perceptive on the reality that Frankie easily overlooks. (The Member of the Wedding)

    cousin of Frankie who spends much his time hanging around the Addams house. Intelligent beyond his years and highly circumspect, he is quick with an insightful comment. He acts as a foil for Frankie, representing the childhood she wants so badly to leave behind. Also, his calm demeanor contrasts her often hysterical behavior. John Henry's sudden death from meningitis at the end of the novel represents the death of Frankie's childhood, as if he only ever existed as a metaphor. (The Member of the Wedding)

    Frankie's quiet and serious widower. Mr. Addams' wife, Frankie's mother, died when Frankie was born. His function in the novel is minimal, as he spends most of the novel out of frame, working in his jewelry shop. When we do hear from him, it is as a stern adult voice, one that keeps the cantankerous Frankie in line. (The Member of the Wedding)

    The Soldier, who is never given a name, is in town on leave for three days. He is a sullen, quiet type who seems to have one thing on his mind: sex. He represents the harshness of the adult world, opening Frankie's eyes, both in to the dangers of war and of sexuality. (The Member of the Wedding)

    Frankie's older brother who gets married to Janice Evans. A completely absent figure from the immediate action, he becomes the source of all Frankie's desires and fantasies. She spent two years dreaming about him while he was stationed in Alaska, and now all she can think about is somehow joining in on his marriage. However hard Frankie tries to convince herself that she is an adult, Jarvis still sees her as a little kid. (The Member of the Wedding)

    In the summer previous to the novella's action, Frankie and Barney "committed a queer sin" in Barney's garage. We can safely assume they were kissing, though McCullers is vague. Frankie's reaction to the experience with Barney tells us how she is both ignorant and afraid of matters regarding sex. (The Member of the Wedding)

He is a lighted skinned African- American and represents someone who might be able to change their racial identity in the same way that Frankie might otherwise change herself from an androgynous child to a feminine adult.
