OSWEGO, NY – Oswego Players’ director Bobby Fontana and his assistant director Norman Berlin III have chosen the cast for Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winner, “To Kill a Mocking Bird.”
This 1960 classic of modern American Literature is slated to go up in the Players’ Frances Marion Brown Theatre mid to late April.
Heading the large cast is Wayne Mosher as Atticus Finch, with Madeline Reister and Will Bandla as his children, Scout and Jem.
Troy Pepper, director of last fall’s “Hound of the Baskervilles,” will take on the role of Tom Robinson, the accused, and Oswego Players’ stalwart, Larry Rose, will be Judge Taylor.
Other cast members include Quinn Etchie, Shana White, Kelly and Peter Mahan, Beverly and Ashley Murtha, Marsha Preston, Richard Mosher, Hunter Schaffer, Scott Bandla, Kyle Walton, Paul Steffens and Sherod Laliveres.
Steven Mahan will be supplying backstage voices.
This show is particularly timely in view of recent controversy regarding Mark Twain’s “Huckleberry Finn.”
Confirmed dates will be published as soon as they are received.
