Casting Call for the trial scene in To Kill a Mockingbird
As the final event in a four-month Community Read series (January-April, 2012) exploring the themes of the 1930s and the book, To Kill a Mockingbird, actors will perform the mock trial scene from the adapted stage play on April 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Thornton Arts & Culture Center (TACC), 9209 Dorothy Boulevard.
Auditions are scheduled for Monday, January 30 at TACC. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 720-977-5882 to reserve a five minute audition timeslot between 3 and 6 p.m. Please arrive at least five minutes before your appointment so you will have time to fill out the audition paperwork and have a headshot taken. (If you have an acting resume and/or headshot, you are welcome to bring a copy with you, although no acting experience is necessary
.) The production team has selected monologues from the trial scene, which will be emailed to you with a confirmation of your audition appointment. Please select ONE monologue to prepare for your audition—memorization is not required. If you are selected for call-backs, you will be notified by 5 p.m. on February 1. Call-backs will take place on Thursday, February 2 from 5-6 p.m. These will be in the form of a cold reading, and we ask that you stay for the full hour. Rehearsals will take place from February-April, and this is a nonpaid production.
