The Piedmont College Theatre Department will present its final show of the 2010-11 season with "To Kill a Mockingbird," at 7:30 p.m., April 7-9; and 2 p.m., April 10, in the Blackbox Theatre of the Swanson Center for the Performing Arts and Communications at the college in Demorest.

The play tells the story of Scout Finch, her brother Jem, and her widowed father, Atticus, in a small Alabama town. It takes place during the Great Depression as Atticus defends a black man charged with raping a white woman. The story takes surprising twists and shocking mysteries are uncovered along the way.

The play adaptation by Christopher Sergel is based on Harper Lee’s novel "To Kill a Mockingbird," and will be guest-directed by Amanda Lee Williams. Williams is originally from Hollywood, Ga., and is now a director, actor and comedian in Seattle, Wash. She is also the Director of Education and Outreach at Youth Theatre Northwest.

Tickets are $5 for general admission. Piedmont faculty, staff, and students are admitted free. Call the box office at 706-778-8500 ext. 1355 for reservations.
