“To Kill A Mockingbird” transports audience to the sleepy Alabama town of Macomb where depression-era siblings, Jem (Michael Thompson of Sicklerville), and Scout Finch (Sophia Donato of Gloucester Township), along with their friend, Dill (Dominick McNew, Jr. of Haddon Township), witness a tense tug-of-war between justice and racism in their community. It’s told from the perspective of 8-year-old Scout, whose widowed father, Atticus (Mike Doheny of Wenonah), defends Tom Robinson (Michael Peak) an African-American man framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Bob Ewell (Minh Lam of Stratford) claims that Robinson attacked his daughter, Mayella (Francine Odri of Lumberton). Scout and Jem endure hostility from friends and discover hypocrisy and outrageous attitudes of adults in this coming of age story. Atticus guides them along the way.

Performance of “To Kill A Mockingbird” will take place on Feb. 8 and 9 at 7 p.m. and February 10 at 2 p.m. in the Dennis Flyer Theatre, Lincoln Hall, Camden County College. Ticket prices are $18 for adults and $15 for senior citizens and students under 12. For tickets, visit www.mainstage.org, or call (855) 936–2467, ext 3.
