Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) has partnered with Oklahoma City Repertory Theatre (CityRep) to present screenings of National Theatre Live (NTL) performances in the college’s Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC) Theater. OCCC will conclude this season’s partnership Sunday, May 15, 6:00 p.m. with a broadcast screening of Tennessee Williams’ timeless masterpiece “A Streetcar Named Desire.” This classic stars Gillian Anderson from “The X-files” as Blanch DuBois, Ben Foster from “Lone Survivor” as Stanley and Vanessa Kirby from BBC’s “Great Expectations” as Stella.
As Blanche’s fragile world crumbles, she turns to her sister Stella for solace – but her downward spiral brings her face to face with the brutal, unforgiving Stanley Kowalski. Visionary director Benedict Andrews returns to the Young Vic theatre company following his Critics’ Circle Award-winning “Three Sisters.”
Tickets for this showing may be purchased online at tickets.occc.edu or by phone at (405) 682-7579. Tickets will be $15 for adults and $5 for students and children.
Oklahoma City Community College opened the doors to the 1,049-seat Visual and Performing Arts Center Theater in early 2014. It features a large atrium with three-story high windows, state-of-the-art lighting and sound equipment and will allow the college to host larger Broadway-style touring productions. The Visual and Performing Arts Center also houses an art gallery and academic center featuring a rehearsal room, library, six classrooms, seven studios, seven labs and faculty offices.
