Auditioners do not need to prepare in advance; we will read speeches from the play. There are adult roles for at least seven women and ten men:
Jean Louise Finch — Scout all grown up and the play’s narrator. (This is a very large role.)
Atticus Finch — A reserved, civilized southern lawyer; Scout and Jem’s single father.
Calpurnia — The Finches’ housemaid; a proud, disciplined Black woman; surrogate mother.
Maudie Atkinson — A lovely, sensitive southern woman about the same age as Atticus.
Walter Cunningham — A hard-working, poor farmer who demonstrates both prejudice and sensitivity.
Reverend Sykes — The Black minister of First Purchase Church; strong-voiced.
Heck Tate — The town sheriff who does his duty without favor.
Stephanie Crawford — The enthusiastic neighborhood gossip.
Bob Ewell — A poor little man who thinks he’ll become famous after Tom’s conviction; he’s a man filled with rage.
Mayella Ewell — The oldest daughter of Bob Ewell who is desperate and lonely.
Nathan Radley — The thin, leathery neighbor of the Finches.
Arthur “Boo” Radley — A mysterious recluse who hasn’t been seen in years.
Mrs. Dubose — A bitter, old, ill woman who is a neighbor of the Finches.
Tom Robinson — Tom is a strong Black man with a crippled left hand; kind and sensitive.
Helen Robinson — Tom’s wife and the mother of young children; numb from shock.
Mr. Gilmer — The public prosecutor who pursue’s Tom Robinson’s conviction.
Judge Taylor — A good, honest judge who, like many, struggles to overcome the prejudice of the day.
