By Christopher Sergel | Based on the novel by Harper Lee
Margeson Theater

A compelling and timeless story told through the eyes of six year old Scout, the tomboyish daughter of small-town lawyer Atticus Finch. As a tense tug of war between justice and racism heats up, Atticus and his family must learn to temper violence and hatred with courage and compassion. Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird continues to inspire hope in the face of inequality.

Run Time: The current run time for To Kill a Mockingbird is 2 hours and 30 minutes with one 15 minute intermission.

Critic and Audience Comments

“The secret ingredient in Orlando Shakespeare’s recipe is the staging of Thomas Ouellette, which is exceptional in every way...when you put To Kill a Mockingbird onstage in a production ascompletely involving and persuasive as this one, even the most casehardened cynic will surely be tempted to suppose, if only for a couple of happy hours, that the world might just be that simple—and hopeful.” - Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

“I think my heart broke a little during Orlando Shakespeare Theater's resonant and relevant production of To Kill a Mockingbird.…. the play is about much more than race relations, and the Shakes' production doesn't forget that… As young Scout, Kennedy Joy Foristall has the belligerent curiosity of a 6-year-old down pat... Warren Kelley gives Atticus not only the appropriate gravitas, but a tinge of sadness as well — a sadness for the injustice he knows his children are likely to witness.” - Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel

“...powerhouse cast...a group of performers who come to own their characters...in a production that has moments that are quiet, humorous, and intensely tragic…..beautifully staged…..This production of To Kill a Mockingbird is powerfully moving, and not simply because of the strength of Harper Lee’s original story.” - Michael W. Freeman, Freeline Media

“Masterfully directed by Thomas Ouellette, this production first nudges you along gently as a warm breeze. And oh my, what a wonderful cast OST has to bring this all to life… But for all this, the story belongs to Scout. And here, young actress Kennedy Joy Foristall delivers a most winning portrayal. She easily flows from humor and warmth to anger and rage... She is loveable, likeable, sassy and fun….Go see this powerhouse production.” - Pam Harbaugh, Brevard Culture
