Playhouse- To Kill A Mockingbird



A MOCKINGBIRD PLAYHOUSE EMAIL TIPSHEET

FROM JIM & ANNIE

The Mockingbird kids, cast and choir are a blast! Eight kids from Crossville, Cookeville and Knoxville share three major roles; the whole cast of 55, led by our Smoke musicians, bridges transitions and scenes with hymns and traditional songs; and our 12-voice black church choir –with Horace Smith, Illeana Kirven, Betty Jackson, Quinn Cason, Keith McCoy and more pros and volunteers---blends spirituals and song stylings into a classic tale of America’s southland. It’s filled with joy and tragedy, humor, drama and song, kids growing up, discovering life’s challenges and lessons, and bonding with an extraordinary father, Atticus Finch. Chris Sergel’s play is a great adaptation of the superb, treasured novel, now read in schools everywhere.
 
 

 




 


Carol Irvin and Patty Payne help tell the story as “dueling small town divas” Miss Stephanie (Carol) and Miss Maudie (Patty), neighbors of lawyer Atticus and his kids in 1935 Macomb, Alabama. Britt Hancock is a great Atticus, with a brilliant and frightening Jason Ross as his nemesis; Michael Ruff as framed defendant Tom Robinson is joined by Illeana Kirven who returns to our stage as housekeeper Calpurnia; volunteers Bob Ochsenrider and Dick Disseler are excellent as crusty, no-nonsense Judge Taylor. Our “lady vols” include Terri Ritter and Laura Kaluska as strict neighbor DuBose, with the guy vols led by the Judges, plus down-home Sheriff Tate by Bob Johnson and Pikeville newcomer and experienced actor, Dan Young.

And I think the kids---Emery Smith, Sammy McKenzie and Emma Rhea Sells as “Scout”; Jayden Gable and Ransom Pryor as Jem; and precocious Dill played by Eli Choate, Josh Norris and Joe Norris—will be exceptional. Nicole Bégué Hackman has chosen and directed the music, with great assistance from Daniel Black on harmonica and banjo, Austin Price on guitar, and John Dobbratz on guitar and “under the stage” keyboards. --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

  

Please help us kick off the opening performances of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, September 6, 7, 10, 13 and 14! Our home area audience is especially important to the Playhouse in early September following Labor Day, when visiting travelers and tourists are diminished for a couple of weeks.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, sponsored by Kenneth and Carol Ann Chadwell/Looney, Looney & Chadwell, PLLC, is rated PG (for limited use of a racial slur). For a complete list of dates or to make reservations, please visit us online at [sign in to see URL] or call [sign in to see URL].

Yes, Emery Smith (in the front sitting down) that's playing Scout is my niece, and Josh Norris (standing on the far right) & Joe Norris (the little fat one standing on the far left) who both play Dill are both my nephews. They are my late brother's grandkids. They all absolutely love acting at the Playhouse, and have been in several of the plays. emoticon
