Community partnership allows Hutchison girls the opportunity to work as professionals with a professional theatre company on our campus.
We are delighted to announce that we will open our 2016-17 theatre season by hosting Tennessee Shakespeare Company’s (TSC) production of "To Kill a Mockingbird" in our Wiener Theater. Through this partnership, our girls will be given the opportunity to work as professionals with a professional theatre company and talented artists working professionally– a distinguishing feature of our award-winning fine arts program. This production will feature six Hutchison girls (Ainsley Geno ’24, Adela Calzada ’24, Caroline Couch ’20, Kaitlyn Graham ’23, Cynthia Quinn Gintz ’23, and Zoe Ford ’23).
Tickets are now on sale for To Kill A Mockingbird. The production opens on September 20 and runs through October 2.

About To Kill A Mockingbird
The daring American classic that fought prejudice with integrity, courage, and a child’s compassion proved bigger than Monroeville, Alabama, the American south, and the United States. With healing power and loving humor, Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is here adapted, with her approval, for the modern professional stage in a world that has yet to take all of her life lessons to heart. As poetic as it is prophetic, To Kill a Mockingbird and its literary icons Atticus Finch, Scout, Boo Radley, Tom Robinson, and Mayella Ewell offer hope and democracy to a hurting humanity.
Tennessee Shakespeare Company's production of To Kill A Mockingbird is adapted from Harper Lee by Christopher Sergel and directed by Dan McCleary. The show is sponsored by FedEx and is hosted in partnership with Hutchison School. It is produced by special arrangement with DRAMATIC PUBLISHING, Woodstock, IL.
