ABOUT THE SHOW
This exciting play is based on the best-selling and much-loved author Harper Lee.
It is a gritty and heart-warming story of 1930’s Alabama, and follows Atticus Finch’s attempts to prove the innocence of Tom Robinson, a black man who has been wrongly accused of raping a white woman in 1930s Alabama, told through the eyes of his young daughter, Scout. The plot explores themes of racism and the innocence and the power of youth.
Inspired by Lee’s own childhood in Alabama, To Kill a Mockingbird features one of literature’s towering symbols of integrity and righteousness in the character of Atticus Finch, based on Lee’s own father. The character of Scout, based on Lee herself, has come to define youthful innocence—and its inevitable loss—for generation after generation of readers around the world.
OUR CAST IS COMPLETE - ALMOST!!
We are still looking for one final cast member to play the role of Reverend Sykes... could this be you?
Reverend Sykes is the African American minister of the First Purchase Church. He's an imposing yet gentle man with a strong stage presence. We are looking for someone with a strong "minister's" voice, who presents as somewhere between 40 and 70 years of age.
