Theatre TCC! 

Love, Laughter, and Magic! Theatre TCC!’s 2013-2014 season features one of Shakespeare’s all-time audience favorites, "A Midsummer Night’s Dream," and the outrageously funny Tony Award-Winning musical, "Urinetown."




 

When you combine some of the region's best directors, designers, and technicians with a state-of the-art performance space and unbeatable ticket prices, 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 495 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!

2013-2014 Season

 

 

William Shakespeare’s

"A Midsummer Night’s Dream"

November 21-23 & December 5-7 at 8:00 p.m.

 

Royalty, fairies, young lovers and an amateur theatre troupe embark on an enchanted romp through one of Shakespeare's most hilarious works.  When four young lovers escape into the forest, their romantic cross-purposes are complicated by the interference of Oberon, King of the Fairies, and his spritely servant Puck.  Entwining three stories of love, magic, and mischief in a moonlit forest on a midsummer night, Shakespeare’s fantastical play remains an audience favorite!

 

"Party/Crash"
A Theatre TCC! Student Showcase

January 23-25 at 8:00 p.m.

 

Join us for an entertaining and inspiring evening of scenes, songs and monologues!  This season’s inaugural showcase celebrates the Roaring Twenties and is performed and designed entirely by TCC students. Tickets for "Party/Crash" are general admission and will be sold at the door (the box office opens at 7:00 p.m.)
 

"Urinetown: The Musical"
Music & Book by Mark Hollmann
Lyrics & Book by Greg Kotis

March 27-29 & April 3-5 at 8:00 p.m.
 
The winner of three Tony Awards, "Urinetown: The Musical" is a wickedly funny tale of a future society where a 20-year drought has forced private toilets to be outlawed.  By satirizing musicals such as "Les Misérables," "West Side Story" and "The Wizard of Oz," it’s a show that not only pokes fun at itself but allows the audience to laugh at the follies of the characters it portrays.  With jabs at the legal system, corrupt corporation, environmental waste, and our sense of entitlement, "Urinetown" has been praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be.
