Posted: Friday, 17 April 2015

TROY – Troy University's Department of Theatre and Dance will present "To Kill a Mockingbird," a play by Christopher Sergel, based on the novel by Harper Lee, Thursday through Sunday in the Trojan Center Performing Arts Center.

Tickets for the event, which runs nightly at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday at 2:30 p.m., are $10 and $5 for student ID holders, and can be purchased in the Trojan Center Theater Box Office or online at

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alabama author Harper Lee, the story is set against the backdrop of the 1930's rural American South caught between the Civil War and the Civil Rights movement. Through the eyes of young Scout, daughter of town lawyer Atticus Finch, the story of racial injustice in a rural Alabama town is revealed in moments of tension and tenderness, humor and warmth. Featuring beloved characters from the American classic, the play offers a reminder of the importance of community, the love of family, the strength to stand for what is right, and the power of hope.
