A Streetcar Named Desire
By Tennessee Williams
Presented by the OHS Players
7 p.m. Thursday, Friday & Saturday, May 12 -14 &
2 p.m. Sunday, May 15

In the sultry sun of New Orleans, passions flare and cultures collide in Tennessee William’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece. Blanche DuBois, a fading relic of the Old South, searches for refuge at her sister Stella’s home—only to collide with reality in the form of Stanley Kowalski—her brutish brother-in-law.

Provocative and lyrical, A Streetcar Named Desire is a commanding landmark drama by one of the great voices of American Theatre, and one of the most remarkable plays of the 20th-century.

Reserved Seating
Adults and Seniors (60 & Older) $15 / College & High School Students $12

"Meditations From the Field"
May 21 - June 18, 2016

Artist: Beth Stoddard
Reception: 6 to 7 p.m. Saturday, May 21, prior to "Earnest in Love" performance at 7:30 p.m. 

Milwaukee-based artist Beth Stoddard’s painterly representations of the Wisconsin landscape complement closely observed still lifes of locally grown produce in an exhibition of oil paintings that reflect both the beauty and bounty of the Midwest. Ms. Stoddard is a Milwaukee based oil painter whose carefully observed landscapes and still lifes subtly balance suggestion and description.

Born in Waukesha, she studied in Philadelphia, obtaining a BFA from the University of Pennsylvania and a four-year Certificate in painting from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Her painterly realist pieces are continuously exhibited in southeastern Wisconsin; recently her exhibitions have included Forward 2014: A Survey of Wisconsin Art Now at the Charles Allis Art Museum in Milwaukee. Her work is held in private collections nationwide.

"Ernest In Love"
7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 21, 2016

What’s better than a play by Oscar Wilde? An Oscar Wilde play set to music! In this musical adaptation of Wilde’s classic, The Importance of Being Earnest, the handsome young aristocrat Jack has a problem; he cannot possibly afford to marry the girl he loves. His best friend Algy has another problem; he and Cecily are in love, but not of the same class. Not to mention that Cecily is Jack’s ward and Jack has expressly forbidden Algy to see her. Jack and Algy must use their wits to prove their worth, prove their parentage and get the girls, all under the watchful glare of the imperious Lady Bracknell. Considered one of the world’s greatest comedies, Wilde’s effervescent dialogue is given new sparkle as a musical. Featuring the irrepressible Angela Iannone as Lady Bracknell.

(Suited for all ages, but best enjoyed by those 13 and over.)

Reserved Seating
Adults $32 / Seniors (60 & Older) and College Students $28 / High School & Younger $14
