Apr. 4th To Kill A MockingbirdIrene A Bisgrove Community Theatre at Cayuga Community College, 197 Franklin St., Auburn. Directed by Heather McNeil Harper Lee’s TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. Dramatized by Christopher Sergel, this tale of humanity is as resonant today as it was when the play was set in the 1930s. “Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” Such was a lawyer’s advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of this theatrical adaptation – a black man charged with taking advantage of a white girl. Told through the memories of Jean Louise Finch, a grown-up Scout, the play explores the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. Tickets: $15/general admission, $10/seniors, $5/all students, 4/4, 4/5, 8:00 pm 4/6, 2:00 pm. www.auburnplayers.org 315-351-0911
