'Glass Menagerie' Sparkles as Theatre's Season Finale
One of Tennessee Williams finest plays comes to life as the College of the Canyons Theatre Department performs its version of The Glass Menagerie May 68 and May 1315.
This will be one of our not-to-be-missed shows, said Theatre Department Chair Susan Hinshaw. The cast is simply doing beautiful work.
Considered by many to contain some of the finest writing of the 20th century, The Glass Menagerie tells an autobiographical tale in which protagonist Tom Wingfield struggles to change his familys luck while stuck in a dead-end and dealing with an overbearing mother. Can a mysterious stranger help turn their fortunes around? Williams play changed the American theater landscape and introduced the world to one of its greatest playwrights.

Matinee shows will run at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 8 and again at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 15.
