Production Description

Casting "To Kill a Mockingbird." Synopsis: Set in Depression-era Maycomb, Alabama in 1935, young Scout Finch lives with her father, Atticus Finch, an attorney, and her older brother Jem. When Tom Robinson, a black man, is accused of raping a white woman, Mayella, Atticus is asked to represent him and accepts, knowing that that decision will likely make him and his family unpopular in town. Meanwhile Scout, Jem and another friend forge a bond over one of the neighborhood legends –Boo Radley. Jem and Scout have never seen Boo, though they have heard that he is held captive in a house down the street. As the trial moves ahead, the town’s emotions run high, mobs gather and relationships are strained. Over the course of the trial, it becomes clear that Tom could not have raped Mayella. However, a jury made up completely with white males convicts Tom. With the conviction comes more heartache for the town as innocents are sacrificed and children learn about the harsh realities of the world.
