ALL ROLES ARE OPEN
 Amanda Wingfield – 50 to 60 years old
A faded Southern belle and abandoned wife and single mother living in a small apartment in St. Louis with her son, Tom, and daughter, Laura.
 
Laura Wingfield – 21 to 30 years old
Crippled from childhood, Laura walks with the aid of a leg brace. Laura is painfully shy, unable to face the world outside of the tiny Wingfield apartment. She spends her time polishing her collection of tiny glass animals—her "glass menagerie."
 
Tom Wingfield – 21 to 30 years old
Tom is an aspiring poet and is the narrator of the play; the action of the play is framed by Tom's memory. Tom loves his mother and sister, but he feels trapped at home, wracked with guilt for leaving, and a victim of his own repressed rage for being put in a position where his freedom comes at the expense of his own conscience.
 
Jim O'Connor – 21 to 30 years old
Jim is the long-awaited gentleman caller for Laura - and the supposed prospect for her matrimony. He is outgoing, enthusiastic, and believes in self-improvement. He is more connected to the real world than any of the other characters; he is the symbol for the "expected something that we live for."
