Suspense. Nostalgia. Counterfeiting. Theatre TCC!'s 2014-15 Season has something for everyone! This year's line-up features a new adaptation of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," Charles Schulz's "A Charlie Brown Christmas," and the splashy Tony Nominated musical, "Catch Me If You Can!"
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.

"Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde"
Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher
October 16-18 and 23-25 at 8:00 p.m.
Directed by Kevin Carr
On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll's experiments with exotic "powders and tinctures" have brought forth his other self--Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interests, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the two sides battle each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall be the master and who his slave. Hatcher's adaptation is an elegant re-telling of the classic tale. It would be a sin to miss it!
"A Charlie Brown Christmas"
By Charles Schulz
November 20-22 at 8:00 p.m.
December 4-5 at 8:00 p.m.
December 6 at 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.
Directed by Michael Norris
Peanuts creator Charles Schulz called on pianist extraordinaire Vincen Guaraldi and his trio to compose and perform music that would reflect the humor, charm, and innocence of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and his entire Peanuts gang for their 1965 Christmas TV special. Theatre TCC! will be kicking off the 2014 holiday season with a new stage musical that captures Schulz and Guaraldi's classic production. With its blend of heartwarming themes, lovable characters, and jazz score, A Charlie Brown Christmas is a joyous event. A shorter run-time makes this production suitable for even the youngest family members.
"Catch Me If You Can"
Book by Terrence McNally, Music by Marc Shaiman
Lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman
March 26-28 & April 2-4 at 8:00 p.m.
Directed by Krystof Kage
Based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story that inspired it, "Catch Me If You Can" is a high-flying, flashy musical that was nominated for 4 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Follow the teenager, Frank W. Abagnale Jr., as he runs away from home in search of a glamorous life. With nothing more than his boyish charms, a big imagination, and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer while being pursued by his nemesis, Detective Hanratty. Theatre TCC! is proud to be presenting the North Florida premiere of this vibrant show!
