To Kill a Mockingbird - meet cast member Frank Riley

Meet Frank Riley who is playing Reverend Sykes in LTA's To Kill a Mockingbird.

Tell us about your character.
I would describe Reverend Sykes as a compassionate man who has seen a lot of injustice in his time.

What were some challenges you faced while working on this show?
One of the biggest challenges for this particular role is making people sense the true spirituality in his character.

What do you hope the audience takes away from this show?
I hope the audience feels a true connection to what life was like in small town Alabama. I hope the audience longs for more after our performance is done. I feel like all of the cast members have brought these classic characters to life, and with a lot of heart.

How long have you been acting?
I started acting in middle school, but I am now just returning to the theatre scene.

What advice would you give others who want to get involved in theatre?
Be dedicated, work hard, and do your research on your particular character.
