To Kill a Mockingbird by Christopher Sergel
Based upon the novel by Harper Lee
Based on the Pulitzer prize-winning masterwork and one of the best-loved stories of all time, To
Kill a Mockingbird is a gripping and heart- wrenching tale of coming-of-age in the South. Set in a town poisoned by prejudice, the play portrays a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, Scout, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

The Pearl Theater is holding auditions for children ages 5 - 18 for Once on this Island, Jr.
With its poignant story and catchy Caribbean-flavored score, Once on This Island JR. is a highly original theatrical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s popular fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, and the Tony-nominated Broadway musical by the legendary writing team, Ahrens, and Flaherty.
Through almost non-stop song and dance, this full-hearted musical tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of her island. When Daniel is returned to his people, the fantastical gods who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest that will test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and even death.
Individual audition announcements will be made for each show prior to auditions. Please check back for details.

About the play:
Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy housekeeper Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha.
Please bring a headshot, and resume, along with known conflicts.
Auditions will consist of cold reading from provided sides. All parts are open, but age appropriate actors will be considered first.
The show will run from Friday April 6 to Sunday April 22, 2018, along with one Tuesday, and one Thursday night performance.
