ATC is thrilled to announce that Tennessee Williams's A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE will be our Winter Production and kick off the year 2022!. This play is regularly credited for bringing American Theatre to a new level. Originally premiering in 1947, it was the American Theatrical Answer to the The Angry Young Man plays of London and Europe. Only, it did more than just "keep up" with them. The play, written by Tennessee Williams, and directed by Elia Kazan opened and introduced New York and the US theatre to a wonderful example of Stanislavski's Method of Acting, changing the face of character and storytelling for all time.
Boasting a group of characters who each can serve as the play's protagonist and antagonist based on the staging, we are choosing to elect TWO versions, one helmed by Senior Lily Figueroa and the other by Junior Rory Webber. Each will emphasize the same themes: loyalty, madness, trauma, and love, but distinctly show how in one the actions and words of a single character can save them while impacting the outcome for all and in another, the same actions lead to their own downfall.
Our production will feature the additional talents of Lily Figueroa and Rory Webber (Student Directors, each taking their own cast in their own direction), Johnny Champion (Light Design), Mickey Estrella (Make Up Designer), and Gabby Wenger (Production and Costume Designer).
Our production will be IN PERSON and LIVE!!! We are BACK!!! We hope that all come to enjoy the passion project of so many talented and dedicated inviduals!
