Long Beach Playhouse Kicks Off Mainstage Season With To Kill A Mockingbird
2011-10-04 · By Editor
Long Beach Playhouse is proud to kick off their 2011-2012 Mainstage Season with a landmark production of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD from the novel of Harper Lee. Featuring a cast of 18 actors, this classic story will be brought to life by director Andrew Vonderschmitt and will open on October 22, 2011.
The world never seems as fresh, as wonderful or terrifying, or as good and evil as it does through the eyes of a child. Atticus Finch must teach his children, Scout and Jem, difficult lessons about racial tolerance, violence and prejudice when he goes against the community by defending a young black man falsely accused of a crime against a white woman. One of America’s greatest stories movingly adapted for the stage.
Opening Night Champagne Reception with the entire cast on Saturday, October 22, 2011. Mockingbird will continue on Thursday nights (8 p.m.), Friday nights (8 p.m.), Saturday nights (8 p.m.) and Sunday matinees, (2 p.m.) through Saturday, November 19, 2011.
