Town Crier Auditions

Watch the "cryouts" from the 12 candidates for Town Crier, presented here in the order in which they auditioned for a panel of six judges on September 7, 2011. The results of a public poll conducted here on September 8 and 9 was combined with the other judges' rankings, and the winner was introduced at the Alexandria City Council meeting on September 27, 2011, at 7 p.m., at City Hall.

Each candidate was asked to deliver a cry composed by the City, followed by an original cry of their own composition or selection. Candidates were not required to appear in costume, and were not required to memorize the cries. A photographer from the Washington Post appears in some of the videos.
