Details:

Hester Prynne auditions
Saturday July 13 and Sunday July 14
1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Prime Stage Studio

Female, 20s

Actors are asked to bring a headshot and resume to the audition and prepare a two-minute monologue. They will also be asked to read from the script.

Character: Hester Prynne is a Puritan woman in her 20s. At first, we see her publicly chastised for bearing a child out of wedlock, though she refuses to name the father. She makes her way in the world, remaining in the village that shuns her, and struggling to raise her daughter whose chaotic demeanor reflects the passion that brought her into the world.

Pearl auditions
Saturday, July 20, 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Monday, July 22, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Prime Stage Studio
Female, age 7 to 12

Actors are asked to bring a headshot and resume to the audition and prepare a two-minute monologue. They will also be asked to read from the script.

Character: Pearl is Hester's daughter. Actor must be able to play young and precocious, with a good vocabulary and a volatile temperament—she switches from sweetness to tantrums in the blink of an eye. Often so wild in her behavior that townspeople say that she could be a forest nymph.
