The Glitter Girls

CTL Mainstage Season Closer

by Mark Dunn

Directed by Sara Jones

July 7 & 8 at 7pm

100 West Third Street, Williamsport

Performance Dates: August 29, 30, and 31 on the CTL Mainstage.

The audition will consist of improvisation games and sides (coming soon!). Southern accents are required.

Character Descriptions:

Arpege LaCroix A.K.A Arnold Cross: (of indeterminate age) Arpege was born Arnold Cross and is currently Trudy Tromaine"s maid. He is "as feminine as required." Arpege is a slob and doesn't go to great lengths to convince others he is a woman.

Trudy Tromaine: (late 50s/early 60s) Trudy is the president and founder of "The Glitter Girls," a woman's social club. She is rich as all-get-out and eccentric. Trudy understands that she has a reputation for color and flamboyance and wears that reputation with pride.

Patty Wesley: (early 20s) Patty is a work-in-progress, smart and analytical, feisty but only occasionally confrontational. She is the youngest Glitter Girl but quite comfortable among her older companions. Patty is pursuing her master's degree in social work.

Charlie Seaburn: (early 20s) Charlie is the son and "representative" of the absent Barbara Seaburn. He is studying to become a lawyer like his mother. Charlie defaults to bashfulness and is not nearly as assertive as he would like to be, the result, some would say, of having lived most of his life under the thumb of a domineering single parent.

Valerie Fairhope: (mid 40s) Valerie is a former exotic dancers whose face, though hardened and furrowed with the years, maintains a youthful beauty and vibrancy. She boasts a shapely figure she is not shy about showing off, Val has been beaten up by life but refuses to stay down for the count.

Flossie Price: (late 50s) Flossie grew up in rural poverty but won her personal sweepstakes when she was swept off her feet and put into both dental chair and a wedding dress by a local dentist, the unfortunately named Vincent Price. She has come a long way but maintains a hillbilly sensibility and manner of speaking.

Mayvonne Rausch: (mid 70s) Mayvonne is the oldest Glitter Girl, but by no means the archetypal "little old lady." Her disposition is sweet and mothering, but she won't be pushed around. Mayvonne was a junior high school teacher, long married but now widowed.

Mamie Ewing: ( mid 60s) Mamie is the wife of a town councilman and owner of her own dress shop; a handsome, exquisitely-dressed woman with a sophisticated air. She can't help it that she's abrasive and puts people off; it just comes naturally.

Corrine Culvert: (mid 30s) Corrine, although fairly attractive, is going through one hell of a time right now, which shows in her bedraggled expression and in the haggard, plodding way she carries herself. Her husband is the bane of her existence, though she can't help loving him.

Dowd Foster: (mid 50s) Dowd is recent widower. His late wife, Mary Katherine, was a Glitter Girl, and he has joined the others to honor her memory and to show respect for all the women who had been her friends. Dowd is a good ol' boy if there ever was one, he has been a good provider and a loving father to his son and daughter.

THE GLITTER GIRLS is produced by special arrangement with the playwright.

THE GLITTER GIRLS is sponsored by Corter's Flooring America.
