USF Stages “To Kill a Mockingbird”

USF’s School of Creative Arts (SOCA) will stage “To Kill a Mockingbird” this spring. Directed by Brad Beauchamp, the production will run for six performances in April at the USF Performing Arts Center, 431 W. Berry St., Fort Wayne.

Based on Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize–winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, this dramatization is storytelling at its best, with one of the most enduring tales of our time. The drama provides a compelling look at justice and the human spirit, as told through the eyes of a young girl learning the ambiguities and realities of adulthood.

This classic compels us to take an honest look at our nation’s past and our moral responsibility to one another. The fundamental lessons of compassion, justice, integrity and courage are significant and still powerfully relevant today, making this play a must for every new generation. Performance dates and times are as follows:

  • Friday, April 5 – 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 6 – 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, April 7 – 2 p.m
  • Friday, April 12 – 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 13 – 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, April 14 – 2 p.m.

Admission is $15 for the general public, $12 for seniors and children under 10 years of age. Group discounts are available. Doors will open 30 minutes before show time for general seating.

“To Kill a Mockingbird” is produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Ill. For more information about the play visit our website.
