DHT Offers Classic ‘Mockingbird’

Harper Lee’s famous novel To Kill a Mockingbird takes the stage Jan. 30-Feb. 16 at Diamond Head Theatre.

The Christopher Sergel adaptation is loyal to its source material: Six-year-old Scout Finch lives with her brother Jem and lawyer father Atticus in a small town in Alabama in the 1930s. Life is idyllic until Atticus is asked to defend Tom Robinson, a black man who is accused of raping a white woman.

Showtime is 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays, and 4 p.m. Sundays. There will be additional 3 p.m. performances Feb. 7 and 13, and a special “talk back” session after the play Feb. 8 with cast and crew.

Tickets cost $15 to $35 and should be purchased early, as seats sell out fast. For more information or reservations, visit diamondheadtheatre.com.
