OREGON CITY – Take a ride back in time and to the South to experience the poetry and tragedy of ‟A Streetcar Named Desire.” Clackamas Community College’s Theatre Department opens its 2017-18 season Thursday, Nov. 9.

Fading southern belle Blanche DuBois makes one last effort at happiness in post-World War II New Orleans at the home of her sister, Stella, and brutal brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. This is considered to be one of the greatest plays of the American stage by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tennessee Williams.

Under the direction of artistic director James Eikrem, "A Streetcar Named Desire" features scenic and lighting design by Christopher Whitten and costuming by Alva Bradford.

The Theatre Department will hold an opening night reception Thursday, Nov. 9, at 6:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Niemeyer Center. Enjoy refreshments and music provided by CCC’s Jazz Combo under the direction of Music Department Chair Lars Campbell.

"A Streetcar Named Desire" runs Nov. 9-19, Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. in the Osterman Theatre located in the Niemeyer Center on the Oregon City campus, 19600 Molalla Ave.

Tickets are $11 for adults, $9 for seniors and $5 (or pay-what-you-can at the door) for students. To purchase tickets, visit or call 503-594-3153.
