South Bend Civic Theatre to Present TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, 5/30-6/8
From the pages of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Harper Lee's American classic To Kill a Mockingbird performs at South Bend Civic Theatre. The book, based on themes of justice, equality, morality, ethics and compassion, is considered one of the most influential novels and best sellers in recent history. This coming of age story recognizes our childhood innocence and challenges us to keep searching for fairness and decency in a troubled world.
The adaptation of the novel is written by playwright Christopher Sergel, who was one of the few people to receive permission from Lee to adapt her work. Sergel spent more than 20 years revising his play for the stage where it premiered in 1991 at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, N.J. It has since become a favorite of theatres across the nation, including the courthouse in Monroeville, where the play is performed annually.
Sponsors for To Kill a Mockingbird are Villing and Company, Alfred H. and Martha J. Choitz, , Barnes and Thornburg, the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County and Tuesley Hall Konopa.
To Kill a Mockingbird performs in the Wilson Theatre May 30-June 8, 2014. Performance times are 7:30 PM Wed-Sat, and 2 PM Sundays. Ticket prices are $15 (Wed-Thu) and $18 (Fri-Sun). For tickets call the SBCT Box Office at 574-234-1112 or online at sbct.org.
