HCC Student’s Play To Be Staged Nov. 15

Performances at 1 p.m., 6:30 p.m.

Performing Arts Center, Lafayette Hall

BRIDGEPORT - Broken Promises, a play by Housatonic Community College student Tammie V. Smith, will be staged at the college Friday, Nov. 15 at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

The play centers around two siblings who are preparing to enter a dance competition and run into a variety of obstacles along the way. They confront these obstacles, which drives the play toward its surprise ending.

“The play is about chasing your dreams,” Smith said. “It’s about playing the cards life deals you, no matter what they are.”

This is Smith’s second production to be staged at the college. A year ago, her play Grandma’s Alley was performed. That play was a tale of tests, trials and triumphs that show how love, care, and concern can help families cope with issues that include domestic violence and mental, physical and verbal abuse. She is a human services major.

Broken Promises, which will be staged in the Performing Arts Center in Lafayette Hall, is free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the Housatonic garage.

HCC is located at 900 Lafayette Blvd. in downtown Bridgeport, less than 150 yards off I-95 (Exit 27) and Rte. 8 (Exit 1), a block from the Harbor Yard Sports Complex.
