Jean Louis Finch (Scout) - Scout is a young girl, age 9-12 years old. She is a tomboy and the younger sister to Jem. Scout is the youngest character on stage but quite 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) – Is Scouts older brother and son to Atticus. He is 12 years old.
He is 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 - Protagonist; Atticus is approximately a 50-year-old widower. He is the 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 - Is the black housekeeper/cook in the Finch household, who plays a large role in raising Jem and Scout. She is a somewhat stern but she is also a deeply loving maternal figure to both children. She helped Scout learn how to write. She is self-educated, proud, capable, and has high standards. Age 35-50.
Miss Maudie Atkinson - Is a neighbor who is not married. She is very kind to the Finch Family. She is one of the rare members of this community who is not prejudiced towards blacks. She is a 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. Age 50-60.
Charles Baker Harris (Dill) - Seasonal playmate to Jem and Scout. He comes to Maycomb each summer to visit his Aunt Rachel Haverford. Dill along with Jem and Scout, attempts to unravel the mysteries surrounding Boo Radley. 8-12 years old, small, wise beyond his years.
Heck Tate - He is the Sheriff of the town who has a real sense of right and wrong. He has the utmost respect for Atticus and they have known each other a long time. He is very aware of the injustice of Maycomb. Age 30-50
Mayella Ewell - She is a young woman who is lonely and overworked and will lie to get what she needs. She is the daughter of Bob Ewell and her major role in life is to care for her seven siblings. She and her siblings have been raised in squalor. She attempted to seduce Tom Robinson is stopped by the arrival of her father. This all leads to the trial and the 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. Age 19-25.
Boo Radley/Mr. Gilmer - played by one actor.
Boo Radley - lonely, reclusive, unassuming figure who is simultaneously kind, generous, and chivalrous. He saves the life of Jem and Scout.
Mr. Gilmer - He is the prosecuting attorney who treats Tom Robinson with rudeness and contempt.
Walter Cunningham/Judge Taylor - played by one actor. Age 40-60.
Walter Cunningham - Hard working farmer who is a product of his environment and the depression.
Judge Taylor - He 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 this racist setting of Maycomb.
Tom Robinson - 25-year-old Black man falsely accused of raping Mayella Ewell. He is handsome, vital, married with three children. He is a field hand who is kind and helpful. These traits however unfortunately lead to his demise. He is crippled on left hand. Age 23-27.
Bob Ewell - He is the antagonist and is father to Mayella and seven other children. He is a lazy town drunk who poaches game and lives off government relief. He falsely accuses Tom, a Black man, of raping Mayella, although there is clear evidence that he himself physically (and perhaps even sexually) abuses Mayella. He is thoroughly despicable and untrustworthy. Age 40-50.

How would you like to be part of one of our productions? As theater is such a collaborative art, there are lots of critical tasks necessary to put on a successful show. You could be part of one of our productions.
Below is a list of the positions and a brief description of what they entail. If you are interested in becoming involved, even if you have no experience, give me a call. Let’s talk about it.
PRODUCER: If you are organized and are good at paying attention to details (and what mother or father isn't?), this is the title for you. The Producer coordinates all the other activities and keeps in touch with the director to make sure everything is proceeding smoothly.
COSTUMES: Do you have a sense of fashion and like to put clothes together? You would work with the Director to interpret each character’s role through what they are wearing. Being able to sew is a plus.
SET DESIGN & DECORATION: Do you like interior design and have a good sense of color? Are you an artist? By working with the Director, you would help decide what color the walls are, what kind of furniture is needed and generally create an environment.
SET CONSTRUCTION: Do you like to work with your hands and do "projects?" Do you like to work with wood or paint? We need you, whether you have tools or not.
LIGHTING: Do you want to learn something new? Lighting is the art of “painting” with light to create mood and texture for the play.
SOUND: You would be working with the Director to choose the music and sound effects needed to set the right mood for different parts of the play.
MAKE-UP: You would work with the actors to create the proper “look” they need for their characters.
PROPS: Are you the type of person who likes to go to yard sales or likes to search for odd pieces of “stuff?” You would help to find those perfect things that the actors use to make the play “real.”
STAGE MANAGER: Are you organized and like to work with people? The Stage Manager works closely with the Director and the actors to keep things flowing during rehearsals and the show.
If you are interested in any of these volunteer jobs, you don't have to have any experience. We will teach you by having you work with one of our experienced people. If you are not sure if this is for you, let’s talk. Call me. I can fill you in and answer questions. BOB KAPLAN, Member of the Board 631-929-3042 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Lantern Theatre is presenting for Visit to a Small Planet by Gore Vidal on Sat - Nov 1, 8, 15, Sun at 1:30pm – Nov 2, 9, 16, and 30. Add'l performance – Tues night during the run - TBD. Full rehearsals with Tech on Oct 20-23, 27-30. If you are interested or have questions - contact Director: Kathy Beckerrupeetwo@optonline.net Home phone: 516 785-7340 Work: M-F 9:30am-12:30pm at 516 623-4200. Synopsis: Arriving on Earth from a distant planet in another dimension, Kreton is the "visitor" alluded to in the play's title. Like others who inhabit his home planet, Kreton never needs to eat, is immortal, and never has sex—immortality has negated the need for reproduction, and his culture has eliminated passion (sex for pleasure) as a societal evil. Through the powers of his mind, he is able to read the thoughts of others, create invisible force-fields, and cause objects to levitate. Kreton arrives hoping to witness a Civil War battle, but because of a navigational error, he lands in 1957. He invades the home of Roger Spelding and shows a great interest in the day-to-day lives of earthlings, calling them his "hobby." In order to create some excitement for himself, Kreton plays a prank that, he is sure, will cause a worldwide nuclear war. He sees the earth as a playground and hopes that a war will allow him to see the ways that “primitive'' humans behave. As this play is filled with special effects (levitating vases and rifles, space ship landings, exploding earth globes, talking cats, to name a few) and 27 sound cues, we will need an extra special stage manager, lighting technician and quick fingered sound engineer and as always, help building the set. I look forward to engaging in a fun, open environment where the cast and crew can create their best work.
