Originally airing Friday, Feb. 22, 2019
WRFA’s Jason Sample talks with director Richard Olson-Walter and cast members Matt smith and Jamie King-Prunty about the local theatrical production of To Kill a Mocking Bird, Dramatized by Christopher Sergel and taking place at the Lucille Ball Little Theater in March.
Scout, a young girl in a quiet southern town, is about to experience the dramatic events that will affect the rest of her life. She and her brother, Jem, are being raised by their widowed father, Atticus, and by a strongminded housekeeper, Calpurnia. Wide-eyed Scout is fascinated with the sensitively revealed people of her small town, but, from the start, there’s a rumble of thunder just under the calm surface of the life here. The black people of the community have a special feeling about Scout’s father and she doesn’t know why. A few of her white friends are inexplicably hostile and Scout doesn’t understand this either.
