Jimmy Dean Auditions

NTC is excited to announce auditions for our May/June 2019 production of "Come Back To The Five And Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean" by Ed Graczyk, directed by Kim Bromley.

In a small-town dime store in West Texas, the “Disciples of James Dean” gather for their twentieth reunion. Now middle-aged women, they were teenagers when Dean filmed Giant two decades ago in nearby Marfa. One of them, an extra in the film, has a child whom she says was conceived with Dean during the shoot. The ladies’ congenial reminiscences mingle with flashbacks to their youth; then the arrival of a stunning-but-familiar stranger sets off a series of confrontations that smash their delusions and expose bitter disappointments.

9 characters – 8 women late teens - late 30s/early 40s; 1 man late teens.

* Joe/Late teens - Sensitive. A beautiful young man.

* Juanita/late 30s or early 40s – Owner of the five and dime. Deeply religious; the organizer.

* Mona/late 30s – Believes that her child is James Dean's son. Over protective and fragile.

* Mona then/17 – Goo goo eyed for James Dean.

* Sissy/late 30s – Big hair Texas chic; a real “gal.” She dreams of joining the Ice Capades.

* Sissy then/17 – The teenage version of her adult self. 

* Joanne late 30s/early 40s - Well put together; a commanding presence.

* Stella May/late 30s – Loud, boisterous, obnoxious; small town girl who married money.

* Edna Louise/mid 30s – Reticent, plain & simple. Very pregnant.
