Auditions for “To Kill A Mockingbird”

Open auditions for LifeHouse Theater’s production of Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird,” dramatized by Christopher Sergel and directed by LifeHouse veteran Brady Huffman, will be Thursday, December 18, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at LifeHouse Theater, 1135 N. Church Street, Redlands.

Auditioners should come prepared to give a dramatic monologue of no more than 1 minute in length.  Monologues from “To Kill A Mockingbird” are preferred but not required.

Harper Lee’s groundbreaking novel is faithfully brought to the stage as LifeHouse proudly presents her internationally acclaimed story as this season’s annual selection of a dramatic classic.  The explosive events surrounding a young girl growing up in a quiet southern town — and how they are faced by her attorney father — offer a captivating and timely theater experience.
