Gregory Peck, Harper Lee & Me

Gregory Peck, Harper Lee and Me by Mary Badham
Thursday, April 20, 2017
At age 10, with no prior acting experience, Mary Badham, was chosen for the role of Scout Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird, which earned her an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress. She maintained contact with Gregory Peck, occasionally accompanying him on lecture tours. With an interest in spreading the message of tolerance and compassion in Harper Lee’s book on which the film was based, she has spoken to audiences across the country and internationally. Badham relates her experience working with the famous actor and why she waited until she was older to read the book.

Mary Badham appears at the Woodstock Opera House on Thursday, April 20 at 10:00 a.m. Tickets are $25 each and may be purchased through the Opera House box office at 815-338-5300 or online at www.woodstockoperahouse.com.

The program is part of the Creative Living Series sponsored by the Woodstock Fine Arts Association, now in its 53rd season. Attendees are invited for coffee, light breakfast treats, and conversation at the Stage Left Café beginning at 9:00 a.m.
