CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS - PHILADELPHIA STORY AUDITIONS
Tracy Socialite, 24 years old. A fierce ice princess. Acerbic wit yet a fragile warmth within. Her picture-perfect persona is a defense from trust issues. (Katherine Hepburn)
Dexter The roguish ex-husband and current neighbor of Tracy. Part angel, part devil, and fully the leading man. Protective, trying to redeem himself.(Carey Grant).
Dinah & DeAnna The mischievous younger, sisters of Tracy Lord. They are double the fun and double the trouble. They love Dexter and desperately wish to end the engagement of Tracy & George. Innocent. The comic relief. Not bad, but drawn that way.
Margaret Loving mother. Young at heart, 47, and quick of wit. The warm sunshine others come to bathe in… aside from when thinking on the affair of her husband, Seth, who she still loves.
Mike A tough yet honest magazine reporter. Judgmental about the upper class yet becomes smitten with Tracy. Liz, his sassy photographer & partner with benefits is put to the test. At 30, snarky & charming.(Jimmy Stewart)
Liz A wise photographer that has held a long-time flame for Mike, the writer. Her common sense and genuine realness offset Mike’s bluster.
George A "rags–to–riches" man who worships the idea of Tracy. Social climber.
Seth The philandering father and patriarch of the Lord Empire who created the scandal that needed covering up. At war with Tracy.
