Almost a year after their home on Main Street shuttered in the unfortunate collapse of the Davenport Hotel building, The Mockingbird On Main flies once more to present Harper Lee’s classic, “To Kill a Mockingbird.”

Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird” opens in a sleepy Alabama town in the midst of the Great Depression, where Scout and her brother, Jem, live with their widowed father, Atticus Finch. Reminiscent of a bygone era, the play immerses us in a simpler time as the children play outside in the summer, act out stories and muse about their mysterious neighbor, Boo Radley. The facade of the seemingly peaceful town begins to crack when a young black man is accused of a terrible crime. Driven by an unshakeable moral conviction, local lawyer Atticus defends the man in a trial that sends violent waves through the community. Timeless and lingering, this hard-hitting work explores prejudice, compassion and the courage to do what is right.

Directed and designed by husband and wife team and Mockingbird founders Tristan Layne Tapscott and Savannah Bay Strandin, the cast includes James Driscoll (Atticus Finch), Sophia Kilburg (Scout), Doug Kutzli (Heck Tate), Alisha Hanes (Calpurnia), Renaud Haymon (Reverend Sykes), Yvonne Siddique (Miss Maudie), Storm Marie Baca (Miss Stephanie), Jullian Tottan (Bob Ewell), Brenna France (Mayella Ewell), Tatum Kilburg (Jem), Will Emerle (Dill), Jayden Smith (Clerk/Townsperson), Wendy Czekalski (Mrs. Dubose), Tyler Henning (Mr. Cunningham/Judge Taylor), Bradley Heinrichs (Mr. Gilmer/Boo Radley) and Ashley Harris (Tom Robinson). The production design will feature the work of Circa ‘21 Costume Designer Bradley Robert Jensen and Lighting Designer Emmett Boedecker.
