TAG/The Architects Group, Inc. was chosen to design this exciting project in Monroeville for their productions of Pulitzer prize-winning author Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird”. The new Monroeville Amphitheater was designed and built by the team of TAG/Architects, CSA Group, Inc. and JubileeScape and funded by Georgia-Pacific.
Georgia-Pacific’s donation to the Monroe County Heritage Museum, which sponsors the play, represents a $150,000 investment in 2011, with an additional commitment of $25,000 over five years for maintenance and repairs. The amphitheater includes portable seating, a courtyard, and improved landscaping for the west lawn of the historic Old Monroe County Courthouse and Museum. The area serves as a permanent location for the play and the project will enhance the site as a venue for other community events, concerts, receptions and plays.
