‘The Glass Menagerie’ concludes CMU theater season
An American tragedy about a family ravaged by the Depression will conclude the 2012–13 theater season at Colorado Mesa University.
Tennessee Williams’ classic “The Glass Menagerie” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, April 17–20, in Robinson Theatre in the Moss Performing Arts Center, 1231 N. 12th St.
“‘The Glass Menagerie’ is a semi-autobiographical memory play that recounts the events leading to the downfall of the Wingfield family,” according to a news release from the university.
“A mother abandoned by her husband, Amanda clings to memories of her idyllic youth in the South, while her daughter, Laura, is painfully shy, staying occupied with her collection of glass animals and living in a world of her own. Meanwhile, (Amanda’s) son Tim secretly dreams of escape,” the news release said.
Tickets cost $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and $6 for students. Tickets can be purchased at coloradomesa.edu/moss/theatretickets.html, at the box office or by calling 248-1604.
