LOOKING FOR 11 MEN / 10 WOMEN (Actors will be asked to convincingly PLAY the ages listed. They do not have TO BE the ages listed.)

JOHN PROCTOR: 30-40. Independent, forthright, opinionated; deeply complicated; despises hypocrisy, most especially in himself; tormented by guilt over his recent affair with Abigail; his skepticism and outspokenness makes him especially dangerous in the eyes of his righteous neighbors.

ELIZABETH PROCTOR: 30-40. John Proctor’s wife; honest, proud, faithful, and principled; a person who sees little or no latitude when it comes to what is right; at times, her rigid austerity tips toward coldness.

ABIGAIL WILLIAMS: 17. Reverend Parris’ niece; impulsive, strong-willed, passionate, with a present sexuality and a fiery temper; keenly aware of her own power, she is ruthless in her pursuit of getting what she wants.

REVEREND SAMUEL PARRIS: 40-50. A minister of the church; self-righteous, austere, and controlling. His power and status within the community are irrevocably undermined when his young daughter is seemingly possessed by the devil.

GILES COREY: 50-70. A salt of the earth, plainspoken, man of the land, who is still physically powerful; straightforward and unrefined.

FRANCIS NURSE: 70-79. Husband of Rebecca Nurse; an upstanding member of the community; honest and straightforward.

REBECCA NURSE: 50-79. An elder of the community; pious, kind, patient and virtuous; her age, combined with the respect she has earned from the community, has made her unafraid to voice her opinions.

THOMAS PUTNAM: 40-60. A wealthy landowner; shrewd; even in the furor and chaos of the trials, he is able to see opportunity for profit.

ANN PUTNAM: 40-50. Wife of Thomas Putnam; brittle, fretful, and anxious; haunted by the loss of her seven children, her grief has left her embittered and resentful of others’ good fortunes.

SARAH GOOD: 40-50; A homeless woman and one of the first accused of witchcraft; eccentric, slovenly, and prone to inappropriate outbursts, her unbecoming behavior sets her apart from the rest of the community.

TITUBA: 30-50. Reverend Parris’ slave, born in Barbados; wary and cautious, aware of the tenuousness of her situation; rooted in a spiritual tradition that is perceived as completely foreign by the small, insular community.

MARY WARREN: 16-20. The Proctors’ serving girl, who joins Abigail in crying witchcraft; timid and emotionally fragile; particularly susceptible to persuasion and coercion by stronger personalities.

BETTY PARRIS: 14-16. Youngest of the afflicted girls; joins the group of girls crying witchcraft; fearful, nervous, easily intimidated by Abigail.

MERCY LEWIS: 16-20. Putnam’s serving girl who joins the group crying witchcraft; clever and sly; she functions as Abigail’s second in command.

SUSANNAH WALCOTT: 16-20. One of the girls who joins Abigail in crying witchcraft; nervous and worried.

JUDGE GEORGE DANFORTH: 50-70. Deputy Governor of Massachusetts; called to preside over the trials; imperious, absolute, commanding; relishes his own power; knows the law and is unwilling to deviate from it; not afraid to use his position and authority to bully suspects and dissenters.

JUDGE JOHN HAWTHORNE: 40-49. Second in command to Judge Danforth; confident and resolute; believes strongly in his own authority and importance; willfully ignorant to any dissent voiced by the community.

REVEREND JOHN HALE: 40-60. A respected minister and expert on witchcraft; brought to judge the veracity of the girl’s claims; judicious, rational.

EZEKIEL CHEEVER: 30-50. Officer of the court; takes his responsibilities to the court extremely seriously and does its bidding even when it involves arresting friends and neighbors; torn between duty and humanity;

GEORGE HERRICK: 40. Marshal of the court; sympathetic and kind to the accused who are under his watch; attentive to his duties, but not overzealous

HOPKINS: 30-60. A guard in the prison.
