Theatre TCC! 


 
 

Puritan hysteria, an inept troupe of actors, and a magical journey of self-discovery… It is with much excitement that we raise the curtain on our 2016-17 season! This year’s line-up features Arthur Miller’s "The Crucible," Don Nigro’s "The Curate Shakespeare: As You Like It" and the spectacular musical "Pippin," which recently won a Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. All performances take place in the beautiful Turner Auditorium, part of Tallahassee Community College’s Fine & Performing Arts Center.​

When you combine some of the region's best directors, designers, and technicians with a state-of the-art performance space and unbeatable ticket pric​es, it's easy to see why Theatre TCC!'s productions have become "must-see" events amongst Tallahassee's cultural attractions.

 


Turner Auditorium... Home of Theatre TCC!



All Theatre TCC! performances take place in the beautiful Turner Auditorium, part of TCC's Fine & Performing Arts Center.  The auditorium boasts 490 seats with plenty of leg room, great sight lines, and fantastic acoustics.

While attending a Theatre TCC! show, audiences are encouraged to visit the Ralph Hurst Gallery before the show, only steps away from the theatre. Invest in the Signature Seat Program and join special Opening Night Receptions. Season subscriptions, lifetime sponsorships, benefit performances and group rates are available, to serve everyone in the community.

There's no denying the growth of the arts at Tallahassee Community College. Through the ongoing work of the Foundation and generous corporate and private support, Theatre TCC! provides nearly thirty students with annual scholarships that allow them to explore their artistic dreams. The Theatre TCC! pledge is simple: to keep artistic quality high and to make the trip to our campus rewarding!

2016-2017 Season

 

"The Curate Shakespeare: As You Like It"

By Don Nigro

September 29-October 1 and October 6-8 at 8:00 p.m.

Directed by Jacob Harrelson

When Don Nigro was asked by a professional theatre company to adapt "As You Like It" so that it could be performed by a company of seven, he devised a completely original play about a rag tag group of players led by a dotty old curate who must present Shakespeare's play. The dramatic interest and the comedy derive from their hilarious efforts to impersonate all of Shakespeare's characters. Subtitled "The record of one company's attempt to perform the play by William Shakespeare," Nigro’s play has become an underground comic classic!​​

"The Crucible"

By Arthur Miller

November 17-19 & December 1-3 at 8:00 p.m.
Directed by Matthew Watson

Written during Joe McCarthy’s anticommunist trials in America, this classic tale of the witch hunts in colonial New England still stands as a powerful parable against the politics of fear. When young women are discovered trying to conjure spirits, the God-fearing people of Salem, Massachusetts are told the devil is in their midst and must be rooted out at all costs. Accusations fly, scores are settled, and fear and suspicion reign. While brilliantly exploring the threshold between individual guilt and mass hysteria, personal spite and collective evil, The Crucible compels us to fathom our hearts and consciences in ways that only the greatest theatre can.

"Pippin"

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Book by Roger O. Hirson  
April 6-8 & 13-15 at 8:00 p.m.


Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is at a crossroads in his life. Does he follow in the footsteps of his father, one of the most powerful men in the land? Or does he strike out on his own, to find his own “corner of the sky?” With an infectiously unforgettable score from the four-time Grammy-winner, three-time Oscar-winner, and musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz ("Wicked," "Godspell," "Children of Eden"), Pippin reminds us that true happiness may be found in the ordinary moments that happen every day.
