To Kill A Mockingbird
at the Old Academy Players
3540-3544 Indian Queen Lane - Philadelphia PA 19129
FREE ON-SITE PARKING

by Harper Lee - Directed by Carla Childs
Produced by Helga Krauss and Dale Mezzacappa.
November 3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 2006.
Tickets are $12.00

Like Margaret Mitchell and Gone With the Wind, Harper Lee wrote only one novel, but what a novel it is. To Kill a Mockingbird became an instant classic and went on to be a wonderful movie earning Gregory Peck his Oscar.

The play faithfully translates to the stage the story of what happens when a young black man is falsely accused of attacking a white girl.

Against the opinion of much of the town, one man comes to his defense, a widowered, middle aged lawyer, Atticus Finch, the father of two small children. His quiet courage and tenacity against great odds is the crux of the story.

We are a non-profit community theater located in the East Falls section of Philadelphia. The Old Academy building was constructed in 1819 and has been our home since 1932. Both Grace Kelly and Robert Prosky started their acting careers on our stage.

6 weekly sessions on Weds. Evenings.
6:30-8:30 PM.
Starting Nov. 1st.

The Germantown Republicans are hosting a Republican Gathering on October 3rd at the Venetian Club in Chestnut Hill.

The Germantown Republican Club is the social focus of Republican activities in the Northwest. Every year we honor our Republican heritage with our annual Lincoln Day Dinner. In 2006, radio commentator Michael Smerconish was our featured speaker.

We have beef-and-beers four times a year, a picnic and a Christmas Party. The Germantown Republican Club gives us "safe space" to be proud Republicans in a mostly Democratic community.
