It is a story of racial injustice, courage and compassion. Through young Scout’s journey, the struggle to do what’s right over what’s easy inspires hope and understanding. The play will run:

To Kill A Mockingbird is co-sponsored by Rid Racism Milwaukee, an action-oriented coalition of individuals and organizations dedicated to dismantling all forms of racism and racial inequities through collaborations, education, dialogue, advocacy and action.
