If you are interested additional performances can be found through this link.

Set in Maycomb, Alabama in the early 1930s, Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel sees racial injustice envelop a small-town community. Through courage and compassion, lawyer Atticus Finch seeks the truth, and his feisty daughter, Scout - a young girl on the cusp of adulthood - brings new hope to a neighborhood in turmoil.

If any story deserves to be called an American classic, it is To Kill a Mockingbird. Lipscomb Theatre presents this production as a featured part of the Christian Scholars' Conference for their study on racial justice.

Luncheon - The Person and Work of Landon Saunders: A Joyful Celebration with Friends
(Thursday, 12:30 pm) - $20 This is event is soldout!

Tokens Show
(Thursday, 7:30 pm ) - $25

The Nashville Scene recognized the Tokens radio show as Nashville's "Best Local Variety Show" in 2013 which is a "grass-kicking shredfest" that is a "huge success," with "genre-bending creativity." The Tennessean calls it "one of a kind," and a "virtuouso ensemble." Prominent Nashville music critic Peter Cooper recently opined that Tokens "is amazing. It's amazing that [Tokens] has integrated music, humor and scholarship into something so seamlessly entertaining." Other reviewers have called Tokens "spectacular" and "provocative." Sojourners opined that "...if A Prairie Home Companion ever moved South and got religion - or at least went to divinity school - it might look a lot like Tokens." Best selling author Shane Claiborne calls Tokens "dazzling. magical. better than CATS...creating beauty and mischief." And the Englewood Review of books says that "Tokens is one of today's finest exemplars of exploration around the intersections of theology and the performing arts..." For more information, visit
