HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (March 24, 2008) This April, Tidewater Community College’s theatre season presents its annual spring play, offering a powerful, modern interpretation to Sophocles’ Antigone.

  • Chesapeake Studio Theatre - April 2-5 at 8 p.m. and April 6 at 2 p.m
  • TCC Roper Performing Arts Center - April 10-12 at 8 p.m.
