Mary Badham – “A Conversation with Scout”
Monday, September 29, 2014 – 6pm
Meet Mary Badham, the American actress who delivered a riveting on-screen portrayal of Scout Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird (1962).
Mary was chosen for the role of “Scout” at the age of ten, with no prior acting experience. She won an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress, the youngest person at the time to do so. After To Kill a Mockingbird, Mary appeared in two other films, This Property is Condemned with Robert Redford and Natalie Wood, and Let’s Kill Uncle. She also appeared on TV (Dr. Kildare and Twilight Zone) before retiring from acting as a teenager to pursue her education.
Over the years Mary maintained close contact with Gregory Peck (Atticus) and occasionally accompanied him on his one-man show lecture tours and award ceremonies.
Today, Mary has a busy schedule lecturing to audiences internationally about the book and the film. Her interest is in expanding knowledge about the film’s message of social injustice and to insure that each generation of students can experience the film’s impact.
This interactive program is a wonderful, entertaining and education evening with the actress herself. Tickets are $17. ONLINE HERE.
