Roles:

Jean Louise Finch: 30’s  Scout as a grown-up woman

Very good story teller needed. Someone who can create the vision for the audience. Strong presence and great voice. Voice over quality.

Jean Louis Finch (Scout): Female, 9-12

tomboy and the younger sister to Jem. Youngest character; smart. When the play begins, she is a precocious six-year-old who has learned to read at home before starting the first grade. She is terrified of Boo Radley, but that changes later in the play. She personifies the innocence of childhood, especially because of her inability to understand racial prejudice. Scout unknowingly saves the lives of her father and Tom, as a lynch mob headed by Walter Cunningham threatens them.

Jeremy Finch (Jem): Male, 12+

Scout's older brother and son to Atticus. Athletic. His relationship with his dad (Atticus) is one of frustration due to the fact that they don’t spend enough time together because his father is always working and it also seems to Jem that his father is getting to old. Jem does share his father's intelligence, honor, and bravery.

Atticus Finch: Male, 50+

protagonist. Father of Jem and Scout Finch. He is a learned, serious gentleman who is the attorney appointed by Judge Taylor to defend Tom Robinson. In his youth he was an expert marksman with a rifle and a good athlete (something that Jem his son does not know about him). Atticus is the iconic voice of reason. He is quietly impressive, reserved, and civilized.

Calpurnia: Female, 35-50

black housekeeper/cook in the Finch household who plays a large role in raising Jem and Scout. Somewhat stern but also a deeply loving maternal figure to both children. She helped Scout learn how to write. Self-educated, proud, capable, and has high standards.

ETHNICITY: African American

Miss Maudie Atkinson: Female, 50-60

neighbor who is not married. Very kind to the Finch Family. One of the rare members of the community who is not prejudiced towards blacks. Sensitive woman who is wise and compassionate and is the character who explains why it is a sin “to kill a mockingbird” to the children.

Stephanie Crawford (Supporting): Female, 40-60

a neighborhood gossip and she enjoys that role; likes to be heard...over everyone else.

Mrs. Dubose (Supporting): Female, 50-75

an elderly, ill-tempered, racist woman who lives near the Finch family; although Jem believes she is just a horrible woman, Atticus admires the courage with which she battles her morphine addiction.

Nathan Radley 40-60

Father of Boo older and crusty with a danger presence

Arthur Boo Radley

Boo Radley is a lonely, reclusive, and unassuming figure who is simultaneously kind, generous, and chivalrous. He saves the life of Jem and Scout.

Charles Baker Harris (Dill): Male, 8-12

seasonal playmate to Jem and Scout. Comes to Maycomb each summer to visit Aunt Rachel Haverford. Dill, along with Jem and Scout, attempts to unravel the mysteries surrounding Boo Radley. Small, wise beyond his years.

Heck Tate: Males, 30-50

sheriff of the town who has a real sense of right and wrong. Has the utmost respect for Atticus and they have known each other a long time. Very aware of the injustice of Maycomb.

Judge Taylor (Supporting): Male, 40-65

a wintry man of the South; 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, he is a sympathetic character.

Reverend Sykes (Supporting): Male, 35-60

the black minister of the Flint Purchase Church, called that because it was paid for with the first money earned by the freed slaves; an imposing man with a strong presence.

ETHNICITY: African American

Mayella Ewell: Female, 19-25

lonely and overworked and will lie to get what she needs. Daughter of Bob Ewell and her major role in life is to care for her seven siblings, who have been raised in squalor. She attempted to seduce Tom Robinson, but is stopped by the arrival of her father. This all leads to the trial and death of Tom Robinson. Mayella lies under oath about the seduction and rape because it is indefensible for a white woman to have feelings for a black man.

Bob Ewell: Male, 40-50

antagonist, father to Mayella and seven other children. Lazy town drunk who poaches game and lives off government relief. Falsely accuses Tom, a black man, of raping Mayella, although there is clear evidence that he himself physically (and perhaps even sexually) abuses Mayella. Thoroughly despicable and untrustworthy.

Walter Cunningham/Judge Taylor: Male, 40-60

played by one actor. Walter Cunningham is a hard-working farmer who is a product of his environment and the Depression. Judge Taylor is a smart, fair man who knows he is dealing with racial issues that he can’t control. He assigns Atticus Finch to defend Tom Robinson on a charge of rape. The Judge and Atticus already know that this is hopeless in Maycomb.

Mr. Gilmer (Supporting): Male, 30-50

Mr. Gilmer is a public prosecutor who is doing his job in trying to convict Tom; in many ways, his manner is cruel and hurtful, yet he clearly has mixed feelings about what he is fighting for.

Tom Robinson: Male, 23-27

falsely accused of raping Mayella Ewell. Handsome, vital, married with three children. Field hand who is kind and helpful. These traits unfortunately lead to his demise. He is crippled on left hand.

Tom’s wife

ETHNICITY: African American
