Theatre: The Glass Menagerie
The Sheridan College Theater and Dance Department presents “The Glass Menagerie” in the Mars Black Box Theater at the Wyo Performing Arts and Education Center on Feb. 13, 14 and 15 at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee showing on Feb. 15 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15, $10 for seniors, veterans and active military, and $5 for students.
“The Glass Menagerie” is a pinnacle of the American theatre library, one of the most celebrated plays by beloved playwright Tennessee Williams. Williams based most of the play upon his real-life experiences living with his family in a tenement in St. Louis during the Great Depression.
According to theater instructor and director Aaron Odom, the play has increased Sheridan College theater students’ versatility as actors.
“I’m quite impressed with our cast,” Odom said. “I’ve worked with all but one of these actors in prior productions, but each one of them is being particularly challenged by the underlying complexity beneath this play’s provincial façade.”
