This project entailed the selection, background research and documentation, casting, artistic design, direction, technical management, and post-production analysis of Henry Ford II High School's production of Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird adapted by Christopher Sergel. Documentation includes research and analysis of the play and an evaluation of the play as a production vehicle for the department of Theatre Arts at Central Washington University. Additionally, the analysis includes a discussion of this production not only as product-driven, but also as a process of discovery and exploration.
