We will be holding youth auditions for To Kill a Mockingbird at Virginia Rep Center on Saturday, June 1 from 1:00 – 6:00 PM. Callbacks will be held Monday, June 3, 2013. For more information, please see the auditions page
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.
We post audition notices in the Arts and Leisure section of the Sunday Richmond Times-Dispatch one week before auditions take place. Listings generally include the ages needed and whether you will be asked to dance or sing in addition to reading from the script.
We usually hold auditions for ages 17 and under separately from adult auditions. Spaces tend to fill quickly, so please sign up for our eNewsletter for the latest auditions announcements via email. Be sure to select Auditions as an area of interest.
Bring a resume along with you. It should include name, phone, email and street address. You can list any previous acting, dance or vocal experience, and any relevant classes. Previous experience or classes are not a requirement for being cast in a role, so don't worry if this only includes contact information.
Headshot or Other Photo
Professional headshots are welcome, but you don't have to have one to audition with Virginia Rep. Please bring a photo with the auditionee's name written on the back.
What to wear
Everyday clothes are fine. If the audition mentions that auditionees will be asked to move, wear comfortable clothing that allows for a range of motion.
