Second theater production opens Oct. 28

San Diego City College theatre department has turned to Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” for its latest production.

The stage adaptation by Christopher Sergel, based on Lee’s book, tells the story of Scout Finch who lives with her brother Jem and their widowed father, Attorney Atticus Finch.

Through her eyes, we watch as Atticus attempts to prove the innocence of a black man unjustly accused of rape, and experience the suffering of the sleepy town of Maycomb, Alabama during the Great Depression.

The second theater production of the fall at City College is very relevant to current themes of racial tension and sexual assault, which have been a constant media subject during recent months.

“To Kill a Mocking Bird” premieres Friday Oct. 28 and runs until the Oct. 30 at the Saville Theatre. Performances for Friday and Saturday are at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday 2:00 p.m.

Admission is $10 for students and $15 for general admission.
