The Front Range Community College Theater Program will present the Tennessee Williams classic “A Streetcar Named Desire” Oct. 25-27 and Oct. 31-Nov. 2 at the Bas Bleu Theatre in Fort Collins.

StreetCar_Poster_FINAL_09-11-13The play is directed by award-winning director and FRCC theater instructor Peter Anthony. In the play, we meet Blanche, a fading Southern belle running from her tragic past, who comes to live with her sister and the rough, sexually charged man she married. Sparks fly and dreams are shattered on the way to the drama’s shocking climax.

“Streetcar,” the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1948, opened on Broadway starring Marlon Brando as Stanley Kowalski, Jessica Tandy as Blanche DuBois, Kim Hunter as Stella Kowalski, and Karl Malden as Mitch Mitchell. The first film adaptation also starred Brando, Hunter, and Malden, with Vivien Leigh taking the role of Blanche Dubois.

At Bas Bleu, the curtain rises at 7:30 p.m. for performances Oct. 25, 26, and 31 and Nov. 1 and 2. The matinee on Sunday, Oct. 27, is at 2:30 p.m.

General admission is $14; for students and seniors, $10. Tickets are available by calling (970) 498-8949 or by going online to www.basbleu.org. Bas Bleu Theatre is located at 401 Pine St., Fort Collins.
