To Kill a Mockingbird, based on the book by Harper Lee, is about Scout, a young girl in a quiet southern town, who 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. Set in 1935 Alabama, this play illustrates the social issues of this time period as the black people of the community have a special feeling about Scout's father. Unpleasant things are shouted and the bewildered girl turns to her father. Atticus, a lawyer, explains that he is defending a young Negro wrongfully accused of a grave crime. Since this is causing such an upset, Scout wants to know why he is doing it. "Because if I didn't," her father replies, "I couldn't hold my head up." When she asks why Atticus would take on such a hopeless fight, he replies, "Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason not to try." As Atticus comes out of the courthouse, the deeply moved town minister tells Scout, "Stand up. Your father's passing!" 

The production is directed by Gloria Robinson with Technical Direction by James Kaiser.  To Kill a Mockingbird will be presented October 9, 10, 11, 12 & 13 at 7:00pm in the Ronald Reagan High School Auditorium.  Tickets are $7 in advance, $8 at the door and $10 for reserved seating. for more information.
