Garden City, NY – Nassau Community College’s Theatre and Dance Department and the Africana Studies Department are proud to present the play The Wreckin’ Ball, which will be performed January 21 through 23 and 26 through 30 at the Little Theatre.

The Wreckin’ Ball is a two act, eight character play that explores the changes one family in particular, and a community in general, endure when their inner city neighborhood is slated for urban renewal. Written by Celeste Bedford Walker, the play dramatizes real life situations occurring all across the country as people attempt to cope with the loss of something they once held to be permanent.

Performances of The Wreckin’ Ball take place at 8:00 p.m. each day except Sunday, when they begin at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $9.00 a person, $7.00 for seniors 55 and over, $5.00 for those aged 18 and under and free for current college students requesting rush tickets.
