Marquette Theatre presents ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’
To Kill A Mockingbird is co-sponsored by Rid Racism Milwaukee.
MILWAUKEE – Marquette Theatre will present a special “Theatre and Social Justice Production,” To Kill a Mockingbird, which has been adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel.
Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1960 novel by Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird is the story of tomboy Scout Finch who watches her lawyer father Atticus undertake his most controversial case. It is a story of racial injustice, courage and compassion. Through young Scout’s journey, the struggle to do what’s right over what’s easy inspires hope and understanding. The play will run:
- Thursday, Nov. 12, through Saturday, Nov. 14, at 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, Nov. 15, at 2:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, Nov. 18, through Saturday, Nov. 21, at 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, Nov. 22, at 2:30 p.m.
To Kill A Mockingbird is co-sponsored by Rid Racism Milwaukee, an action-oriented coalition of individuals and organizations dedicated to dismantling all forms of racism and racial inequities through collaborations, education, dialogue, advocacy and action.
Ticket prices for the general public are $20, with discounts offered to senior citizens, Marquette students, employees and alumni. All seats are $6 on Wednesday, Nov. 18. For more information, call the Theatre Box Office at (414) 288-7504 or online at marquettetheatre.showclix.com.
