To Kill a Mockingbird with the Utah Shakespeare Festival
AIR DATE: June 19, 2012
'You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.' That's one lesson from Harper Lee's classic story, To Kill a Mockingbird. The Utah Shakespeare Festival revives that novel as a play, along with The Merry Wives of Windsor, Titus Adronicus, Hamlet and Les Miserables, among others. We talk to the young actors playing 'Jem' and 'Scout,' and to the education director about how the festival is reaching out to children.
