“A Christmas Memory” by Truman Capote

The Walpole Players will be holding auditions for its upcoming production of Truman Capote’s heartwarming story, “A Christmas Memory,” on Sunday, October 2nd at 2:00 PM, and Wednesday, October 5th at 6:00 PM. This is a one-act play about a young boy’s loving relationship with his eccentric aunt, and their yearly tradition of baking 30 fruitcakes for Christmas to send to “people we admire.” The production will be directed by Mike Wright. Auditions will be held at the Helen Miller Theater on the second floor of the Walpole Town Hall.


Truman – a bookish man who narrates the story.

Buddy – a young boy.

Sook Faulk – an elderly woman, sixty-something. Innocent, and childlike.

Mr. Haha – a man who illegally sells whiskey and runs a saloon. He is called “Ha-ha” because he never smiles.

Aunt – a very severe and judgemental woman.

Uncle – angry, unpleasant.

Performances are planned for December 8th, 9th, and 10th at the Helen Miller Theater in Walpole, NH. If you would like to audition but cannot make the audition times, let us know and we can accommodate you.
