 This adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird is by Christopher Sergel and is faithful to the timeless classic. Scout, a young girl in a quiet southern town, is about to experience dramatic events that will affect the rest of her life. She and brother, Jem, are being raised by their widower father, Atticus, and by their strong-minded housekeeper named Calpurnia. Wide-eyed Scout is fascinated with the people of her small town but, from the start, there’s a rumble of thunder just under the calm surface of the life here. Set in 1935, this play illustrates the social issues of this time. This dramatization of the touching classic tale is a meaningful and inspiring work of art. 

The production is directed by Dr. Gregory Thorson with David Fraser as the set designer, costumes by Hilary Fahey, lighting by Eddie Sadler. The production features local actors and students of all ages including: Mathew McDonald, Russel Piette, Keith Rose and Tristan Ford.
