Stark Theatre Presents The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee WilliamsPosted Mar. 25, 2011
Kent State University at Stark Theatre presents The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams. The final production of the 2010-11 season will be performed on April 8, 9, 15 and 16 at 8 p.m. and on April 10 and 17 at 2:30 p.m. in the Kent State Stark Theatre, 6000 Frank Avenue NW in Jackson Township.
The opening evening is Scholarship Night. All of the proceeds from the April 8 performance will benefit music and theatre scholarships. American Sign Language interpretation will be provided for the performance on April 10.
In this classic memory play by one of America’s most important dramatists, overbearing matriarch Amanda Wingfield’s ambitious hopes and dreams for her children threaten to smother her painfully shy daughter, Laura, and her son, Tom, an aspiring writer. The family’s precarious relationship reaches its dramatic climax with the long-awaited visit by a gentleman caller for Laura.
Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $5 for non-Kent State students, children under 17 and senior citizens. All Kent State students are admitted free of charge with current student ID.
