At age 11, Mallorey Wallace is already a veteran in Milwaukee theatre. This weekend she’s making her debut at Milwaukee Rep in the role of Scout in To Kill A Mockingbird.

Mallorey has acted at The Fireside Dinner Theatre and First Stage Children’s Theater, recently as Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells. First Stagewhere I just directed A Wrinkle in Time, is one of the great assets of the city of Milwaukee. It teaches young people about performing and is very kid-oriented, and it’s clear that Mallorey has learned a lot from her time there.

I talked with Mallorey about acting at First Stage, her busy acting schedule, and her role as Scout in Milwaukee Rep’s To Kill A Mockingbird. Tickets for the show are on sale now, and are available through The Rep’s online ticket office.

The Rep’s performance is also a part of The Big Read, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) designed to revitalize the role of literature in American culture and bring the transformative power of literature into the lives of its citizens. The Big Read in Milwaukee will focus on Harper Lee’s American classic To Kill a Mockingbird.
