'Glass Menagerie' comes to Coach House Theatre

Published:

Coach House Theatre will present "The Glass Menagerie," the classic play by Tennessee Williams, March 20 to April 6.

The production is directed by Coach House Artistic Director Nancy Cates.

In this acclaimed "memory play," Amanda Wingfield (Dede Klein) is a faded, tragic remnant of Southern gentility, who is striving unsuccessfully to give meaning and direction to her life, and the lives of her children Tom (Joe Pine) and Laura (Tess Burgler). The show also features Jeremy Jenkins in the role of Jim O'Connor.

The Glass Menagerie will be presented March 20 to April 6. Curtain times are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m.

Dinner or brunch is available to all theatre patrons prior to every performance, at the Akron Woman's City Club next door.

There will be a $12 preview performance March 20 only, at 8 p.m. The official opening night is March 21. Group rates for holiday gatherings or office celebrations are available. Tickets are $15 on Thursdays, $12 for the March 20 preview performance, and $20 for other performances. Students are $12 for all shows.

Coach House Theatre is at 732 West Exchange S. in Akron. Call 330-434-7741, or visit www.coachhousetheatre.com for details.
