Complete casting has been announced for the Intiman Theatre's upcoming production of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, which will begin previews at the Seattle venue Sept. 14 with an official opening Sept. 19.

Directed by Fracaswell Hyman, this production of Mockingbird was adapted by Christopher Sergel and will run through Oct. 28. The cast of actors and musicians will boast David Bishins (Atticus Finch), Patti Cohenour (Miss Maudie Atkinson), Peter Crook (Boo Radley/Mr. Gilmer), David Drummond (Heck Tate), Stephen Grenley (Judge Taylor/Walter Cunningham), William Hall Jr. (Reverend Sykes), Russell Hodgkinson (Bob Ewell), Josephine Howell (Calpurnia), Lori Larsen (Miss Stephanie Crawford), Lino Marioni (Dill), Liz Morton (Mayella Ewell), Sean Phillips (Tom Robinson), Nick Robinson (Jem Finch), Walayn Sharples (Mrs. Dubose) and Keaton Whittaker (Scout Finch).

Mockingbird is the Intiman's fourth production in its five-year American Cycle series.

To Kill a Mockingbird, according to press notes, "is set in the Depression-era Maycomb, Alabama, where Scout Finch lives with her brother, Jem, and their widowed father, Atticus, a lawyer. The central event of [this] adaptation is Atticus Finch’s defense of Tom Robinson, a black man falsely accused of raping a white woman. As seen through Scout's eyes, Harper Lee's classic story tells deep truths of life in the Deep South, and evokes Maycomb's community of eccentric and mysterious neighbors, including the reclusive Boo Radley."

The creative team includes scenic designer Alec Hammond, costume designer Elizabeth Hope Clancy, lighting designer Greg Sullivan, composer and music coach Grant Dermody, sound designer Joseph Swartz, fight director Geoffrey Alm and dialect coach Judith Shahn.

The Intiman Playhouse is located at 201 Mercer Street at Seattle Center. Tickets, priced $27 to $50, are available by visiting www.intiman.org or by calling (206) 269-1900.
