TCC Announces Spring Fine Arts Events

Tarrant County College campuses are offering a number of dance, drama and musical events this spring.
“The Good Woman of Szechwan” runs Feb. 21-23 at Theatre Northwest, located at the Northwest Campus, 4801 Marine Creek Parkway. The drama, which focuses on the struggle to live a moral life in a society corrupted by greed and selfishness, also will be performed at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in Shreveport, La., on Feb. 26. Selected from approximately 40 college and university submissions, the TCC Northwest Theatre department will be the only two-year college to perform during the festival.
On Feb. 26, the Brock McGuire Band will perform in the Student Center at the Northeast Campus, 828 W. Harwood Road, Hurst. At 4:30 p.m., the band will lead a music appreciation session, with a concert to follow at 7:30 p.m. The band’s repertoire emphasizes mostly Irish music but also includes arrangements of American Old-Time, Bluegrass, French-Canadian and other Celtic traditions.
The South Campus performance of “My Name is Rachel Corrie,” a play based on the diaries and emails of a college student and member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) will be performed on Feb. 20-22 at the Joe B. Rushing Center for the Performing Arts, located at 5301 Campus Drive. Corrie traveled the Gaza Strip during the Second Intifada. She was killed while acting as a human shield, protesting the destruction of a house by Israel Defense Forces.
Four new, award-winning scripts, written by Southeast Campus students, will be brought to life at the C.E. Roberson Theatre, 2100 Southeast Parkway, Arlington, Feb. 19–22. The Achieving the Dream through the Arts Festival of New Plays includes: “The Walks of Life and Those Who Inhabit It,” “Living the Dream,” “So Famous (Sofa Love)” and “Winter’s Plea.”
In March, a celebration of TCC Northwest Dance Program’s 15th anniversary will be recognized through “In Retrospect 15.” The Northwest Dance Company, Mosaic Dance Project and 30 TCC alumni will perform March 28-29 at the Scott Theater/Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy Street.
