CARLSBAD, CA - New Village Arts, Carlsbad’s award-winning theatre company, continues lucky Season 13 with the American Classic TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD directed by Executive Artistic Director Kristianne Kurner and company member Justin Lang. Based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, this adaptation by Christopher Sergel brings to life the timeless tale of innocence, justice, inequality, compassion, and growing up through the memories of a now-adult Scout (played by Kurner). TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD tells the story of Scout, a wide-eyed girl living in the South during the Great Depression with her brother Jem and her widowed-father Atticus Finch. When Atticus, a lawyer, courageously defends a black man accused of rape, Scout, Jem and their friend Dill are faced with the issues of loss of innocence and moral integrity.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD at New Village Arts features Kristianne Kurner as Jean Louise Finch (adult Scout), Manny Fernandes as the iconic Atticus Finch, Katelyn Katz as Scout, Dylan Nalbandian as Jem and Matthew Mohler as Dill. The rest of the Artistic Ensemble includes: Kathi Copeland, Yolanda Franklin, Lauren King, Justin Lang, Max Macke, David Macy-Beckwith, Durwood Murray, Walter Murray, Eric Poppick, and James Winkler. This production features a Set Design by Tim Wallace, Properties Design by Kacia Castelli, Costume Design by Mary Larson, Original Sound Design by Bill Bradbury, and Lighting Design by Sherrice Kelly.

“The anguish of racial injustice and the maddening psychology of racism ensure that "To Kill a Mockingbird" will remain a story worth telling.” - The Salt Lake Tribune

“The emphasis is on story-telling itself, and the audience is invited, indeed required, to bring its own imagination to the production.” - The London Telegraph
