In celebration of Tennessee Williams’ centennial birth year, the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia is presenting a national tour production of "The Glass Menagerie" at the Schwartz Center for the Arts at 7 p.m. Friday, March 4.

The experience is one the cast and crew are looking forward to as it will mark the first time a Walnut Street Theatre production has hit the road for such an occasion, and the SCA is thrilled to include them in their season.

“Bringing this outstanding company to the Dover/Kent County area is truly an honor for the Schwartz Center,” said Executive Director, Sandra Conner.
 
One of Tennessee Williams’ earliest successes, "The Glass Menagerie" deals with themes of the power of memory and inescapable reality while delving into the complex and strained relationships of Tom, Laura, and Amanda Wingfield.
 
Founded in 1809, Walnut Street Theatre is the oldest continuously operating theatre in the United States. For 200 years, this venerable institution has stood the test of time to become a staple of Philadelphia's, and for that matter, America's cultural community. The Walnut's landmark theater has been graced by some of America's most legendary performers, including Ethel Barrymore, Marlon Brando, Sidney Poitier, Helen Hayes and Katharine Hepburn.

Walnut Street Theatre will perform "The Glass Menagerie" at the Schwartz Center for the Arts at 7 p.m. Friday, March 4.

Tickets are $35 for adults, $32 for senior and military, $27 for students and $20 for children 12 and younger.
