5:00 AM 2011


The Denver Center Theatre Company will host its first Town Hall Meeting at the Tattered Cover Book Store in LoDo today from 10am-5pm in conjunction with the opening of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. The meeting will bring together regional and local leaders, artists and academia in discussion with the community to expand the dialogue on the issue of race in America.

The Town Hall Meeting consists of a series of conversations on the impact of the book and its implications in our world. An impressive lineup of panelists will include DCTC Artistic Director Kent Thompson, To Kill a Mockingbird director Sabin Epstein, activist Harold Fields, great-grandson of W.E.B. Du Bois Arthur McFarlane, author of Wade in the Water Arthur Jones and Dr. Vincent Harding who draftEd Martin Luther King's famous anti-Vietnam speech A Time to Break Silence.

The meeting will kick off with a conversation on The Impact of To Kill a Mockingbird. Other discussions include Unforgotten: Stories from the Civil Rights Movement, The New Racism and Where Do We Go From Here? "The goal of the Town Hall Meeting," says Director of Audience Development Gregory Smith, "is to bring members of the community together in a open discourse surrounding this period in America and engage in a civic dialogue where we can find a bridge to understanding, realize a common purpose, and hopefully ignite a spark that can be a catalyst for positive change in our communities."

This event is free to the public and no reservation is required.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, an adaptation of Harper Lee's American classic, will play the Denver Center Theatre Company's Stage Theatre September 30-October 30. Tickets are on sale now, by calling 303.893.4100 or
