Upcoming Theatre Production
The Hastings College Theatre Department will present Henry Fielding’s The Tragedy of Tragedies, or, The Life and Death of Tom Thumb the Great, Thursday – Saturday, April 29 – May 1 at 8 p.m., and Sunday, May 2 at 2 p.m. in Scott Studio Theatre. Intended as a farcical parody of heroic tragedies Fielding's Tom is a mighty, although tiny, warrior and conqueror of giants, as well as the object of desire for many of the ladies at court. The plot is silly and slight but in this new adaptation, blood and jokes flow freely. This rarely staged classic comedy is full of special effects and not for the faint of heart or humor.
