Our friends at Theatre Tuscaloosa are up and running with their stage adaptation of the classic Harper Lee novel, 'To Kill A Mockingbird.' The performances run through November 1st at Bean-Brown Theatre on the campus of Shelton State Community College.

The immensely popular and Pulitzer Prize winning 1960 novel, 'To Kill A Mockingbird' is such a classic, even the movie adaptation was an Academy Award winner.

Amazon's notes on the novel:

Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior - to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.

Theatre Tuscaloosa's stage adaptation of Harper Lee's novel is the familiar tale of Scout, Jem, Atticus, and Boo Radley. When Atticus Finch agrees to defend an African-American man in the Jim Crowe South, it has profound effects upon his children and community. Come re-live this landmark story as Harper Lee's much-anticipated sequel hits the shelves.

Congrats to the cast and crew for selling out last night's opener (Friday, Oct. 23rd).  It shows the quality and reputation of this outstanding theatre group.
