TCC Theatre brings “Animal Farm” to the stage for two weekends in November

Tidewater Community College Theatre will present “Animal Farm” for two weekends in November.

All performances will be held in the Black Box Theater in the Academic Building on TCC’s Chesapeake Campus, 1428 Cedar Road.

“Animal Farm” is a satire with a sting, adapted for the stage by Nelson Bond from the allegorical novel by George Orwell. Led by three pigs, the disgruntled animals overthrow their human owner, take control of the farm and create a new society where “All animals are equal.” The pigs take charge, but soon the new society becomes corrupt

Intermingling humor and drama, “Animal Farm” leaves audiences shaken with the tale of a tragedy that happened in a mythical barnyard far away but could happen in our own backyard.

Performance dates are:

  • Nov. 7-9 at 7:30 p.m.
  • Nov. 10 at 2 p.m.
  • Nov. 14-16 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students, seniors, alumni and military members. Payment is by cash or check at the door. The box office opens 45 minutes prior to show time.

Tickets can be purchased with a credit card at the Chesapeake Campus Business Office in the Pass Building during normal business hours.
