I remember reading “To Kill a Mockingbird” in High School. The story—which still resonates today— expounds on the effects of racism in this country, the Jim Crow era and the rise of the Civil Rights movement. As a French-Canadian I wasn’t taught or raised with that kind of racial awareness. It wasn’t until my family moved to America that I was given a new education on the systemic oppression that is embedded in this country’s fabric.

 

So when I heard about the upcoming Broadway production of Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird”, a new play by Aaron Sorkin, starring Jeff Daniels as Atticus Finch, I was inspired. And in an effort to educate the young minds and voices of our future, the producers have announced a partnership with the New York City Department of Education which will make $10 tickets available to middle and high school students throughout the New York City public school system. “To Kill a Mockingbird”  is in preview now and opens on Thursday, December 13 at the Shubert Theatre (225 West 44 Street).

These specially-priced tickets to this adaptation of the best-selling Pulitzer Prize-winner, which was just voted America’s best-loved novel through the PBS nationwide initiative “The Great American Read,” will be available to all middle and high school students in New York City’s public school system.In addition to New York City students, the offer will be made available to interested public middle and high schools outside New York City as well.

 

The $10 ticket will be available to student groups (minimum of 12, maximum of 100, with an effort to accommodate groups in excess of 100) for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening performances from March 12 through May 21,  2019, and for Wednesday and Thursday matinee performances from March 6 through June 5, 2019. Educators who are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity for their students should visit:www.broadwayinbound.com/to-kill-a-mockingbird-for-nyc-doe-schools/.
