Musical Theatre of Anthem Presents To Kill A Mockingbird  

Anthem, Ariz.  October 3, 2016 – Musical Theatre of Anthem (MTA) announces their upcoming production of To Kill A Mockingbird, an American masterpiece by author, Harper Lee, about the power of childhood innocence, morality, and love. It's 1935, and racial tensions are high in Maycomb, Alabama. Nonetheless, young Jean Louise Finch - or Scout, as she is fondly called - manages to live a rather carefree, privileged existence, insulated from issues of race. All that changes when Scout watches her father, Atticus Finch, defend an innocent man, Tom Robinson, against a potential death sentence, which looms threateningly against him because of prejudice due to race. Scout begins to realize that just because society portrays something as being true doesn't mean that it actually is fact. With the help of Atticus and her older brother, Jem, Scout learns that "growing up" often means doing what is right, even when it comes at great cost. Defined by Harper Lee as a simple love story.  

The talented cast, comprised of award winners and nominees ages 13-adult, presents the show November 10-13 in Anthem. The award-winning production staff includes Director Lara O’Meara and Stage Manager Jessica Kishbaugh. 

Performances take place Thursday – Sunday, November 10 –13 at Musical Theatre of Anthem, 42323 N. Vision Way, Anthem, AZ  85086.  Times vary, see website for details. Tickets may be purchased online at  Adult tickets are $19; Students, Seniors and Children 12 and under are $16.
