The Indiana Players are seeking actors for our production of Anne of Green Gables. Due to the number of roles that we are casting, we are endeavoring to schedule auditioners for specific time-slots to maximize your audition experience.

Please fill out an online audition sheet and we will contact you to schedule a specific audition time. With one exception, we are seeking adult and child actors 10 and older.

For the character of Minnie May Barry, we are looking to cast a 7 to 9 year old. Auditions for Minnie May will be held between 5pm and 6pm on the same day as the other auditions. If your child is interested in auditioning for Minnie May, there is a separate audition form.

The following roles all speak in at least two scenes, and cannot be doubled with any other roles:
ANNE SHIRLEY (11 to 16) – a good-hearted, charming girl with a lively imagination
MATTHEW CUTHBERT (early 60s) – kindly father figure to Anne, Marilla’s brother
MARILLA CUTHBERT (mid-50s) – more stern than Matthew, but heart of gold, a mother figure to Anne
RACHEL LYNDE (mid 50s) – well-meaning, but nosey neighbor and friend of the Cuthberts
MR. PHILLIPS (20s) – a young school teacher, a bit pompous
PRISSY ANDREWS (16) – a girl in her last year of school
