Prattville’s Way Off Broadway Theatre announces its production of Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, adapted by Christopher Sergel, which will be produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois. The play will be directed by Sam Wallace, who last directed The Curious Savage at WOBT.
This play, based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Alabama author Harper Lee, is a coming of age story loosely based on Lee’s family and friends and deals with social and racial issues of the Deep South. The critically acclaimed novel was made into a movie which received several Oscars, was adapted for the stage and presented in the U.S. and U.K. and has been included in the educational curriculum in schools throughout the United States for many years.
To Kill a Mockingbird will open on Thursday, February 9, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. and there will be a reception to meet the cast and crew following the play. The production will run Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays February 10–26, 2017, with a special performance on Valentine’s Day.
