Summer has arrived in earnest, and at TNC, that means one thing: STREET THEATER! This Summer, TNC's Award-Winning Street Theater Company is set to begin their tour of New York City with their new Musical, TAP DANCE. Written and Directed by Crystal Field, with Music Composed and Arranged by Joseph Vernon Banks, TAP DANCE features a cast of 30 actors, a 10-person crew, Stage Managers, 3 Assistant Directors and a 6-piece Band, all set to delight crowds all over the City. TNC's Street Theater is Free for all, and is one of New York's Can't Miss Summer Events!Next weekend marks the opening of TAP DANCE, as we perform Saturday in our own East Village and Sunday in Harlem. If we're not in your neighborhood this weekend, don't worry! We'll be there soon enough!
TNC'S AWARD WINNING STREET THEATER COMPANY
An Operetta for the Street
Written and Directed by CRYSTAL FIELD
Musical Score Composed and Arranged by JOSEPH VERNON BANKS
"It's all in the wrist! Let's hit a Home Run for the Homeland!"
TNC's award-winning Street Theater always contains an elaborate assemblage of trap doors, giant puppets, smoke machines, masks, original choreography and a huge (9' x 12') running screen or "cranky" providing continuous movement behind the actors. The company of 25 actors, twelve crew members, two assistant directors and five live musicians shares the challenge of performing outside and holding a large, non-captive audience. The music varies in style from Bossa Nova to Gilbert & Sullivan.
