Theatre at Tarleton opens with Tennessee Williams classic


STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Fall theater productions at Tarleton State University feature a pair of well-known, classic works and a children’s all-time favorite.

Theatre at Tarleton begins its fall run with “A Streetcar Named Desire” by Tennessee Williams. The 1947 work runs from Tuesday, Sept. 25, through Saturday, Sept. 29.

“Streetcar” received the Pulitzer Prize for drama and is widely regarded as one of the finest plays of the 20th century.

The semester’s final production is Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” from Nov. 6 through 10.

The tragedy dramatizes the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition and is thought to have been first performed more than five centuries ago.

Both productions will be presented in the theater of the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center. The curtain rises at 7:30 each evening. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for children, senior citizens and Tarleton faculty and staff, and $5 for students.

The annual Young People’s Series Performance features “Alice in Wonderland” on Saturday, Oct. 27, in the Fine Arts Center Auditorium. Performances are slated for 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Admission is $3 per person and tickets go on sale one hour before each performance begins. All seating is general admission.
