WHAT: The Windham Theatre Guild will hold open auditions for their final Main Stage Show for the 2017-2018 Season…To Kill A Mockingbird.
The place is Maycomb, Alabama, in the Great Depression years of the 1930s. Wide-eyed Scout Finch is fascinated with the people of her small southern town. When her father Atticus Finch, a well-respected lawyer, mounts a vigorous and compelling case for the defense of Tom Robinson, a poor black man accused of the rape of a young white girl, an idyllic world of childhood is changed forever. Through the drama of the trial and its aftermath comes a searching examination of freedom, justice, honesty, and hypocrisy. A compelling, deeply moving story told with warmth and humor. WTG is proud to bring this classic of modern American literature to life on stage. Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of the seldom done classic on the WTG stage. **Please be aware that this play contains both mature content and language.
