To Kill a Mockingbird

Scout, a young girl in a quiet Alabama town, is about to experience dramatic events that will affect the rest of her life. She and her brother, Jem, are being raised by their strong-minded housekeeper, Calpurnia, and their widowed father, Atticus Finch. The children learn a grim lesson when a local trial threatens to tear their town apart.

This is a dramatization of the Pulitzer Prizewinning novel by Harper Lee. Although set in 1935, the topics of tolerance and racial injustice resonated with the social upheaval of the 1960’s, and are still relevant today. This production contains racial and sexual content along with strong language. Gunshot effects will be used during the performance. This production is sponsored by the Alabama 200 Bicentennial Commission.
