Theatre of Anthem Presents To Kill A
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.

ages 13-adult, presents the show November 10-13 in Anthem. The award-winning
