TCTC's Performing Arts Troupe "Knights of the Round Theatre" are getting ready for their first performance on May 21st at the Tyler Civic Theatre Center.
They will perform at 2:30pm and 7:30pm, all proceeds from the show will go towards their trip to Baytown, TX as they depart on June 7th to take part in the Texas Non Profit Theatre's 21st Annual Youth Conference. This will be the 3rd consecutive year for TCTC's Troupe to take part in the conference, but already they have become one of the staple groups to perform.
Elephant's Graveyard is the true tale of the tragic collision of a struggling circus and a tiny town in Tennessee, which resulted in the only known lynching of an elephant. Set in September of 1916, the play combines historical fact and legend, exploring the deep-seated American craving for spectacle, violence and revenge.
The show will also travel to several area East Texas stages. On June 2nd at 7:30 they will perform at the Henderson Civic Theatre, June 3rd at 7:30 they will perform at the Lindale Community Theatre and on June 4th they will perform at the KnightLight Theatre & Tavern in Jefferson, TX which will be a dinner theatre event. Dinner will be served at 6pm and the show will be at 7:30pm.
Tickets will be sold at the door only for all performing events - including Tyler Civic Theatre - but reservations are required for the Dinner Theatre event in Jefferson TX. You can make reservations by calling 903-665-8546.
All events are fundraisers for the Troupe. Hope to see you all there!
