The Philadelphia Story
by Philip Barry
Auditions for Pioneer Theatre Company’s play, The Philadelphia Story, by Philip Barry, will be held on Friday, October 12, 2012, from 12 noon to 5:00 p.m.
Tracy Lord is young, beautiful, sophisticated, fabulously wealthy, and about to marry what she thinks is the man of her dreams. But when her dashing ex-husband and the two reporters assigned to cover her wedding descend on her family’s opulent country house outside Philadelphia the day before the ceremony, Tracy has a hard time keeping her nuptials—not to mention the dictates of her own heart—on track.
Audition slots from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m. on Friday, October 12, 2012 are for Actors’ Equity members only. Audition slots from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. are open to all auditioners (auditioners must be 18 years old or older). The audition slots are limited to five minutes.
