CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Ready for some theatrical fun? Then mark your calendars because the curtain will soon be going up on John Tyler Community College’s (JTCC) production of Psycho Beach Party by Charles Busch. Set in 1962, the play features Chicklet Forrest, a teenage tomboy who desperately wants to be part of the surf crowd on Malibu Beach. One of the biggest things in her way is her many personalities.

JTCC’s Theatre Workshop class, directed by Jase Smith, will hold three performances of Psycho Beach Party from November 16 – November 18, 2012 at the Nicholas Student Center on the College’s Chester Campus (13101 Jefferson Davis Highway).  Performances on November 16 and November 17 will begin at 7:00 p.m. The November 18 performance will get underway at 3:00 p.m. Admission is free. Psycho Beach Party, presented through special arrangement with Samuel French Inc., is recommended for mature audiences.

For more information, contact Jase Smith at jsmith@jtcc.edu or the Division of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at 804-706-5086. For directions to the College’s Chester Campus, go to http://www.jtcc.edu/locations.
