STG Invites Title I Schools and Community Groups To Enjoy TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

While schools will be given priority, community groups are also encouraged to apply for the $10-ticket program.

Seattle Theatre Group is offering $10 tickets for youth who attend Title I middle-and-high schools to enjoy To Kill a Mockingbird. The special matinee performance will take place at 11 a.m. on Oct. 13 at the Paramount Theatre. While schools will be given priority, community groups are also encouraged to apply for the $10-ticket program.

"The themes in 'Mockingbird' are still painfully relevant: racism, inequity, and justice versus the law," said Josh LaBelle, STG Executive Director. "For society to move forward, we must reflect on and learn from the past. Thus, Seattle Theatre Group is proud to offer this consequential story-and the important dialogue it may inspire in our community."

Student matinees are part of STG's inclusive programs that aim to uplift and support historically excluded communities. Diversity and inclusion on the stage and in the audience are core values at Seattle Theatre Group, an organization striving to make people feel welcome and represented. The student matinee will provide sensory spaces, fidgets, and other tools for a great experience (though this is not officially a "sensory friendly" event). ASL interpretation will be provided. All participating schools and community groups will be recognized as STG community partners.

The Broadway version of To Kill a Mockingbird is Academy Award-winner Aaron Sorkin's brilliant adaptation of Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel; the play has received high praise in Chicago Tribune, Rolling Stone, and NPR which referred to the piece as "quickly becoming one of the greatest plays in history."

STG encourages Title I schools to apply now and give students the opportunity to be enriched with this 20th-century literature through an artistic lens. Tickets cost $10 per person. Applications for schools and communities to attend the matinee close on Sept. 22. For more information, visit https://www.stgpresents.org/ece/broadway#commitment.
