TIGERS BE STILL By

kim Rosenstock

TIGERS BE STILL Two modern families find that happiness is not as impossible as it seems in this new comedy by Kim Rosenstock. Laughter and heartbreak find their perfect balance as Rosenstock introduces us to characters that are at once familiar, but refreshingly new. Redemption is the treasure that each of these characters finds at the end of their search and we are all the richer for accompanying them on their journey. This comedy introduces us to a playwright with an important and original voice.

A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE A S T RE E TC A R N AM E D DE SI RE By Tennessee Williams

Considered one of the greatest plays of the 20th century, A Streetcar Named Desire is a poetic masterpiece that follows the life of a desperate Southern belle, Blanche DuBois, who seeks shelter at her sister’s New Orleans apartment following the loss of their ancestral home. There, she is challenged by the unforgiving brutality of her brother-in-law, Stanley, a controlling blue-collar worker who uses sexual threat like a weapon. An instant classic, the play still resonates with how we move, think, and feel today.

DOUBT, A PARABLE Boasting multiple Tony Awards and a Pulitzer Prize, this drama features a characteristically mistrusting nun and principal named Sister Aloysius, who is certain that Father Flynn has molested Donald Muller, the school’s first “negro” student, soon after the boy’s arrival. A younger and more tenderhearted Sister James wants to believe another story. Set in 1964 in the Bronx’s fictional St. Nicholas Church School, rumors swirl as the story takes on a number of fraught issues that continue to resonate today: race, sexuality, tradition versus modernity, and gender in the Catholic church.

A PARABLE


THE MERCHANT OF VENICE A timeless tale of love, mercy and justice, The Merchant of Venice takes us on a journey into the best and worst of human nature. Portia remains one of Shakespeare’s strongest heroines and Shylock represents a crowning achievement in dramatic literature. Containing some of the most beautiful language ever written, The Merchant of Venice offers us a chance to spend time in the presence of a genius who continues to hold, as it were, a mirror where we can view ourselves.

THE PAJAMA GAME This Tony Award-winning musical tells the story of the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory, where conditions are anything but tranquil. Sparks fly between the new superintendent, Sid Sorokin, and the leader of the union grievance committee, Babe Williams. Their rocky relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7 ½ cent pay increase, causing a conflict between labor and management, as well as a battle of the sexes. Jealousy, intrigue, knife-throwing and romance combine to impress and entertain audiences of all ages.

STUDIO SERIES The School of Theatre, Film & Television Studio Series is dedicated to supporting the original and contemporary pieces of performance through a ‘bare essentials’ production format that draws primary focus to the artistic and intellectual labor of theatre students. Its community-centered, people-generated approach to performance provides creative learning opportunities for student artists, thought-provoking experiences for audiences, and occasions for productive dialogue about topics relevant to student populations and the broader Tucson community. Please Note: Studio Series plays are NOT for children. General Admission: all seats $7

The world of “Endgame” is a bare room with two windows. One looks onto the sea, one onto the earth. The room is by Samuel Beckett inhabited by four characters: Hamm, directed by Greg Pierotti the world’s center, blind and unable to leave his armchair; Nagg and Nell, his ancient parents, confined to two garbage cans; and Clov who walks with a limp and orbits these three carrying out their tasks. In a world of such constraints they commit the heroic act of continuing.

Chekhov’s classic portrait of three sisters - Olga, Masha, and Irina - tells the story of love and loss. MFA Generative Dramaturgy by Anton Chekhov students, Fly Steffens (Playwright) A new production by Fly Steffens directed by John Muszynski and Anna Jennings (Dramaturg), team up to create this fresh adaptation for the Studio Series, exploring stagnation, existential dread, and the destructive nature of addiction among the young women of the Prozorov family.

WIDESCREEN

WEDNESDAYS

POINT BLANK

GENTLEMAN’S AGREEMENT

Lee Marvin plays Walker, a crook who is out for revenge after being shot and left for dead by his partner-in-crime. Director John Boorman combines aspects of classic film noir with cutting-edge techniques from the French New Wave in order to create one of the most original and offbeat crime films of all time. Also starring Angie Dickinson, Point Blank is an adaptation of Richard Stark’s novel The Hunter, and was recently selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry.

A famous “social problem” drama of the 1940s, Elia Kazan’s Gentleman’s Agreement deals with the scourge of anti-Semitism in America. Gregory Peck stars as an investigative journalist who goes undercover, pretending to be Jewish in the “polite society” of upper-class New York. He quickly learns just how deep the roots of prejudice and hatred are, even among his own friends. One of the most courageous Hollywood productions of the classical era, Gentleman’s Agreement won Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director.

(1947) – Feb 21, 2018

(1967) – Oct 4, 2017

JEREMIAH JOHNSON (1972) – Mar 28, 2018

(1980) – Oct 25, 2017 During Halloween month, join us for one of the scariest, most memorable horror films ever made –Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Based on the bestseller by Stephen King, the film tells the story of Jack Torrance, who agrees to serve as the winter caretaker of the remote Overlook Hotel. Unfortunately, the hotel has a gruesome history of insanity and murder…a history that threatens to resurface when Jack and his family are snowed in for the winter.

(1944) – Nov 29, 2017 Wind down the year with one of the greatest musicals of all time! In 1903, the Smith family lives an idyllic existence in St. Louis, home of the upcoming World’s Fair. But turmoil engulfs the family as Mr. Smith considers taking a job in New York City. As they face an uncertain future, the Smiths are encouraged to reaffirm the importance of home and family. Starring Judy Garland and featuring classics like The Trolley Song and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Meet Me in St. Louis is an enduring classic that finds new fans with each new generation.

SCHOOL OF THEATRE, FILM & TELEVISION

Robert Redford stars as the title character, a mid-19th-century mountain man who learns to survive in the harsh wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. When he loses all that is dear to him, Johnson becomes a kind of “ghost warrior” who relentlessly pursues vengeance against the Crow Nation. One of the finest westerns of the 1970s, Jeremiah Johnson is a subtle, morally complex film that was shot in the stunning natural environments of Utah.

Do THE RIGHT THING (1989) – Apr 25, 2018 Spike Lee’s breakout hit is one of the most controversial and important American films of the last few decades. Lee stars as Mookie, a pizza deliveryman in Brooklyn, who is caught in the middle of tensions between his Italian-American boss, Sal, and the African-American community that patronizes Sal’s pizzeria. Dealing with questions of race relations, police violence, and tolerance, Do The Right Thing is as timely and thought-provoking today as it was in 1989.
