The Tulsa Community College (TCC) Theatre Department will present The Prince Who Wouldn't Talk, a comedy, October 27-28 and November 1-5, at the VanTrease Performing Arts Center for Education (PACE), 81st Street and U.S. 169, Tulsa.

Tickets for the performances on October 27 and 28 and November 3 and 4, which begin at 7:30 p.m., and for the November 5 performance, which begins at 2 p.m., are $5.00. Tickets for the performances on November 1 and 2, which begin at 11 a.m., are $2.00.

The play, written by James Brook, is about a king and queen who discover that their son does not speak--not realizing that the prince does not speak because his talkative parents don't give him a chance to get a word in edgewise.

The king and queen put the prince through a series of tests by three wizards, the Wizard of Noiseology, Wizard of Thinkology, and the Wizard of Voiceology, each with a limited degree of success. A beautiful young maiden ultimately has a profound effect on the prince and his ability to speak.

The TCC production is directed by Lisa Stefanic, Adjunct Instructor of Theatre. It lasts about 45 minutes and is highly recommended for elementary school students.

The play also has been recently produced by the Village Theatre, Palatine, IL.; Oak Ridge Community Theatre, Oak Ridge, TN.; and the Henrico Theatre Company, Richmond, VA.
