This is an overnight trip to Monroeville, AL. with bus transportation provided. Pickup/dropoff locations in Scottsboro, Fort Payne and Pelham, AL. Read more below. We will stay at the Mockingbird Inn & Suites and attend the Nelle Harper Lee Birthday Celebration Play and Courtyard Party. The stage adaptation of "To Kill a Mockingbird" is a truly special experience. Performed in the old courthouse, it allows attendees an opportunity to transport themselves back to the time of the book's setting. The play lasts approximately 2 hours and has two acts, one outside and one inside. In the event of inclement weather, an abbreviated version of Act I will take place inside, along with the full version of Act II . Only on this special evening, does each ticketholder get the opportunity to attend a meet-and-greet immediately after the play with the actors and listen to a live band, accompanied by heavy hors d’oeuvres, drinks and dancing.
This is an elegant white tent event. You will have time to walk around the downtown square area on your own before the play to see the beautiful outdoor murals and eat dinner on your own before the play. We suggest dinner at The Prop and Gavel Restaurant, located directly across the street from the courthouse. They have indoor seating as well as rooftop seating. The view is amazing. We will also visit Harper Lee's grave as well as the remains of Truman Capote's childhood family home.You will need to eat breakfast before we depart on Saturday and we will return before supper time on Sunday. Lunch for both days is included in your ticket price. The Mockingbird Bird Inn offers a hot breakfast for Sunday morning. The only meal you will have to purchase on your own is your supper before the play. Or, you can skip supper and wait for the heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks after the play around 9pm.
