Video: To Kill A Mockingbird And The Importance Of The Arts


The cast of To Kill A Mockingbird made a special trip to Washington D.C. to perform for middle and high school students at the Library of Congress at the invitation of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Published in 1960, Harper Lee’s debut novel To Kill a Mockingbird was an immediate and astonishing success. It won the Pulitzer Prize and quickly became a global phenomenon. Considered one of the great classics of modern American literature, the novel has never been out of print since its original publication.

The night before the performance, Pelosi met with the cast, sharing her feelings on why the arts are important and how they bring people together. Hear her hopeful words in the video below, then click on the show page link to book your group tickets to To Kill A Mockingbird.
