Midland College (MC) and Midland Community Theatre (MCT) have a long history of partnering to provide cultural enrichment for the Midland community.   This fall, the two entities are collaborating once again for the upcoming production of Harper Lee’s classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird.

Midland College employees and students are involved onstage and backstage in this show. Of special note are the following:

Director of MC’s Drama program and MCT Executive Director Tim Jebsen is the show’s director

  • MC Biology Professor Dr. Paul Mangum is stage manager
  • MC Web Editor Jeff McDonald plays the role of Judge Taylor
  • MC student DeLaney Beattie plays the role of Mayella Ewell
  • MC student Frankie Flores plays the role of Mr. Gilmer

To Kill a Mockingbird recounts the childhood experiences of six-year-old “Scout” Finch during the Great Depression in the fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama. When her widowed father Atticus, a principled and respected attorney, defends a black man falsely accused of sexually assaulting a white woman, Scout and her brother witness the horrors of racism. They also learn valuable lessons about courage, compassion, tolerance and prejudice.

The show will be presented in reader's theatre format and runs September 18-October 4.  Tickets are available through the MCT Box Office, (432) 570-4111.
