Casting Breakdown
 
Character Breakdown
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) - 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 fathers intelligence, honor and bravery. 
 
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. He is a young boy, 8-12 years old, small, wise beyond his years.
