USF staging “To Kill a Mockingbird” as spring play
Feb. 18 FORT WAYNE, Ind. - The School of Creative Arts (SOCA) at the University of Saint Francis will stage “To Kill a Mockingbird,” directed by Brad Beauchamp, on Fridays through Sundays, April 5-7 and 12-14, at the USF Performing Arts Center, 431 W. Berry St., Fort Wayne. Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 p.m. and Sunday shows are at 2 p.m.
The dramatization of Harper Lee’s book 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. The stage play invites the viewer to look honestly at our nation’s past and our moral responsibility to each other, while examining the fundamental lessons of compassion, justice, integrity and courage. The universality of message makes it relevant across generations.
Admission is $15 for the general public and $12 for seniors and children under age 10. 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 Dramatist Play Service. For more SOCA activities, visit our website.
