Casting the following roles:
SCOUT (9-11 Female) A young girl about to experience the events that will shape the rest of her life. She should, ideally, be able to play as young as age 9.
JEM (11-16 Male) He is a few years older than his sister Scout, and like his sister- perhaps even more than his sister- he’s reaching out to understand their unusual non-conventionally admirable father.
DILL (10-16 Male) Small and wise beyond his years. Dill is neater and better dressed than his friends. There is an undercurrent of sophistication to him, but his laugh is sudden and happy.
CALPURNIA (25-50 Female) Black; Proud and capable, she has raised the motherless Scout and Jem. She’s a self-educated woman and she’s made quite a good job of it.
WALTER CUNNINGHAM (35-50 Male) Cunningham is a hard-up farmer who shares the prejudices of this time and place, but nevertheless a man who can be reached as a human being.
STEPHANIE CRAWFORD (35-50 Female) She’s a neighborhood gossip, and enjoys it to the hilt. There’s an enthusiasm in her talking over the people of the town that makes it almost humorous.
BOO RADLEY (30-45 Male) Arthur Radley is a pale recluse who hasn’t been outside his house in fifteen years. It takes an extraordinary emergency to bring him out.
MRS. DUBOSE (55-75 Female) An older woman – ill, walking with difficulty, her pain making her biting, bitter, and angry. However, she’s fighting a secret battle within herself, a battle about which few people are aware, and her existence has in it a point of importance for Jem and Scout.
TOM ROBINSON (20-35 Male) Black; handsome and vital, but with a left hand crippled by a childhood accident and held against his chest. He is married to Helen and they have young children. He faces up to a false charge with quiet dignity.
JUDGE TAYLOR (40-65 Male) The judge is a wintry man of the South, who does what he can within the context of his time to see justice done in his court. While he tries to run his court impartially, his sympathy is with Tom.
MR. GILMER (30-50 Male) He is a public prosecutor who is doing his job in trying to convict Tom. In many ways his manner is cruel and hurtful. And yet under all this, he too has unexpressed doubts as to Tom’s guilt, and his heart isn’t really in the conviction.
BOB EWELL (35-60 Male) Ewell is a little bantam-cock of a man who lives with his family by the town dump. Bob thinks this trial will make him an important man.
MAYELLA (17-25 Female ) The daughter of Bob Ewell, she’s a desperately lonely and overworked young woman whose need for companionship has overwhelmed every other emotion.
REV. SYKES African American minister, 40 - 60 years old. Strong presence and voice.
COURT CLERK 35 - 60 years old.
