All performances will be staged at the Chesapeake Campus’ newly rebuilt outdoor theater at the corner of Bells Mill and Cedar roads. Performance dates are June 27, 28, 29, 30 and July 1 at 8 p.m.

No reservations are necessary, and performances are free and open to the public. The audience is encouraged to sit on the grass or bring low lawn chairs. Picnic baskets are welcome.

The role of Hamlet will be played by former TCC Theatre student Logan Bennett, now a professional actor. A veteran of Shakespeare in the Grove productions, Bennett will soon appear in the Steven Spielberg film “Lincoln.” The play is directed by Ed Jacob, head of the TCC Theatre Department, with set and technical direction by Matthew Gorris.
