Feature production - TCC’s 10th annual Shakespeare in the Grove


Romeo, played by Fernando Morales, woos Juliet, played by Mary Beyer.


HAMPTON ROADS, Va. - (June 14, 2006) - The tragic tale of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet comes to Tidewater Community College as the feature production for TCC’s 10th annual “Shakespeare in the Grove” this summer. A cast and crew of more than 35 students and veteran actors will bring Shakespeare’s most popular love story to life in both indoor and outdoor settings for eight performances.

On June 28, 29 and 30 and July 1 and 2 at 8 p.m., audiences can thrill to the magic of “Shakespeare under the stars” during the outdoor performance in the Grove on TCC’s Chesapeake Campus. The audience is encouraged to bring low lawn chairs or blankets and a picnic supper - and should plan to arrive early to be situated close to the action.

After its run in the Grove, the cast and crew will transport the production in its entirety to the TCC Roper Performing Arts Center in downtown Norfolk for performances on July 6, 7 and 8, also at 8 p.m.

All performances are free of charge, and no reservations are needed. For additional information, call TCC’s theatre department office, 822-5219.

These productions are made possible with the support of the Chesapeake Fine Arts Commission.
