Tacoma Little Theatre Presents TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, Now thru 2/9
Tacoma Little Theatre starts 2014 with Harper Lee's literary classic, To Kill a Mockingbird, brought to life on stage.
Wide-eyed Scout is fascinated with the sensitively revealed 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 period. When Scout's father, the humble and respected lawyer Atticus Finch, defends a black man against shocking accusations by a white family, the town takes sides. Throughout it all, Scout learns about the contradictions of prosperity and dire poverty, celebrated freedom and rank injustice, and love and hate. This dramatization of the touching classic tale is a meaningful work of art.
This production was adapted by Christopher Sergel and co-directed by Martin J. Mackenize & Jennifer Niehaus-Rivers. It features a cast of 18 local actors including Jim Rogers (Atticus Finch), Liberty Evans-Agnew (Scout), Gunnar Johnson (Jem), Austin Kuetgens Brooks (Dill), and Noah Nieves Driver (Tom Robinson).
For this production we will be offering special educational performances. For more information please visit the website or contact Tacoma Little Theatre directly. There is limited seating available.
