“The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.”

The American classic that fought prejudice with integrity, courage, and a child’s compassion proved bigger than Monroeville, Alabama, the American south, and the United States.  With healing power and loving humor, Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is here adapted, with her approval, for the modern professional stage in a world that has yet to take all of her life lessons to heart.  As poetic as it is prophetic, To Kill a Mockingbird and its literary icons Atticus Finch, Scout, Boo Radley, Tom Robinson, and Mayella Ewell offer hope and democracy to a hurting humanity.

The cast of 20 actors features Broadway veteran Patrick Ryan Sullivan as Atticus Finch, Memphian Ainsley Geno as Scout, and the return of TSC favorite Tony Molina, Jr. as Rev. Sykes.  The cast also includes Michael Khanlarian (Bob Ewell), Josh Pearce (Jem), Adela Calzada (Dill), Caroline Couch (Mayella), Ann Wallace (Calpurnia), Meredith Koch (Maudie), Jeanna Juleson (Stephanie), Carolyn Spratley (Mrs. Dubose), Chris Cotton (Boo Radley/Mr. Gilmer), Jim Dale Green (Sheriff Tate), J.D. Sutton (Jude Taylor/Mr. Cunningham), and Roman Kyle (Tom Robinson).  The ensemble includes Kaitlyn Graham, CQ Gintz, Zoe Ford, Reece Berry, and Violet Wallace.
