Community College of Aurora’s featured fall stage production will be Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird,” adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel.
Play dates will be Nov. 6-8 and 13-15 at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 7 and 14 at 11 a.m., and Nov. 8 and 15 at 1 p.m. All shows will be held at the Larry D. Carter Theater on the CentreTech campus.
The “Mockingbird” story is set in the Deep South during the Great Depression of the 1930s and follows the lives of a brother and sister and their widowed father, Atticus Finch. The small family is thrown into chaos when Atticus, a lawyer, chooses to defend a black man accused of rape, a controversial move at that time and location.
Despite the serious themes of the work, this production offers charm and humor as part of the play’s brilliantly crafted dialogue.
Stay tuned for a major announcement regarding the college’s March 12-21, 2015 production.
