HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – (March 7, 2007) – Tidewater Community College announces its Theatre program production of John Steinbeck’s classic novel, The Pearl.

TCC Theatre will present its interpretive adaptation of the American icon’s timeless story, The Pearl - the tale of a poor Indian pearl diver, Kino, who finds a giant pearl.

Performance dates are:
March 28-31 at 8 p.m.
April 1 at 2 p.m.
April 4-7 at 8 p.m.

All performances of The Pearl will be at the intimate Studio Theater on the Chesapeake Campus, 1429 Cedar Rd. Ticket prices are $8 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens. For more ticket information and reservations, call 822-5219.
