Reading Community Players, Pennsylvania's third oldest community theater , will hold auditions for “To Kill A Mockingbird” Sunday, June 19 and Monday June 20. Performance dates will be September 23, 24, 25, 30, October 1, 2
The play is set in a small Alabama town in 1935.  It is the time when Blacks were still severely oppressed having to face deep prejudice in the South.  Atticus is a light in the dark exposing the cruelty of that prejudice.  At the same time it shows the goodness in some people willing to face injustices at their own risk.  It’s a glimpse into a time that is mostly in the past, but while we still seem to wrestle with the prejudices.  “Mockingbird” still makes us look at our inner selves.

The theater is located at 403 N. 11th Street, Reading, PA,
