Giveaway: Tickets to “To Kill A Mockingbird” at Walton Arts Center

Happy Monday, mamas! This week we’re giving away two tickets to the opening night performance of “To Kill A Mockingbird” on Tuesday, April 16, 2024 at the Walton Arts Center.

This show would be a great date night, a night out with a friend, or a meaningful mom-and-teen night at the theatre as you watch this iconic book come to life on stage. (This show is best suited for older kids aged 12 and up.)

Performances of this show run from April 16-21st.


All rise for Academy Award® winner Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork. The New York Times Critic’s Pick TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD is “the most successful American play in Broadway history” (“60 Minutes”).

Rolling Stone gives it 5 stars, calling it “an emotionally shattering landmark production of an American classic,” and New York Magazine calls it “A real phenomenon. Majestic and incandescent, it’s filled with breath and nuance and soul.”

With direction by Tony Award® winner Bartlett Sher, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD — “the greatest novel of all time” (Chicago Tribune) — has quickly become “one of the greatest plays in history” (NPR).

Here’s a sneak peek of the show:

Emmy Award®-winning actor Richard Thomas plays the role of Atticus Finch in the National Tour.

  1. I always wondered what it would be like to hear the mockingjay from Hunger Games

  2. Hummingbirds- thinking of how my grandma loved to feed and watch them on her porch

  3. Cardinals have always been special to me! I love seeing them pop up when I least expect one.

  4. My Dad loves bald eagles, so I grew up with a lot of bald eagle items around our house

  5. I used to love TweetyBird as a kid. I still have Tweety Bird slippers with big heads on the top of my toes. When I wear them to work for a special day at my preschool, the kids always call them duckies:)

  6. I remember my grandparents having hummingbird feeders every year. Some many fond memories watching the birds with them.

  7. Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds! When I think birds I automatically think of that movie!

  8. Without a doubt, Cardinals are precious in our family! We have had some really dear loved ones pass over the last 3 years, and my 9-year-old always looks out our backyard to see multiple cardinals on our privacy fence. He likes to think they are those loved ones still watching over us!

  9. Birds are my favorite! I always love to see cardinals because it reminds me of my Grandma- She loved cardinals!

  10. My aunt had a male peacock named Rufus on her farm for years. She collected his tail feathers every year when they dropped and made striking arrangements with them. Rufus was beautiful and loved to spread his feathers and strut around for all to see!

  11. A few years ago I had taken my girl scout troop camping at our local camp and we saw a beautiful Peacock running around behind our camping area. It was so beautiful. Peacocks have always stood out to me anyway because of their beautiful feathers. My mom had some in her room when I was a kid and remember wanting to touch them so badly because they were so soft looking.
