A Streetcar Named Desire
Explosive, passionate, and heartrending, A Streetcar Named Desire is modern American theatre at its best. When fading Southern belle Blanche DuBois arrives on the doorstep of her sister Stella’s apartment building in New Orleans, she is unwittingly entering a lion’s den. Wounded by romantic abuses, loss, and dangerous mistakes, Blanche prefers her world kept in dim, flattering light, fuzzy at the edges. She is shocked by Stella’s simple existence, her new low-class habits, and most of all, her crude, simple husband, Stanley. Stanley is fierce and unpredictable, moving from violence to softness in an instant, and he and Blanche begin a cruel, sadistic dance that’s only possible end is pain. With his signature poetic prose, muggy Southern Gothic setting, and psychological insight, Tennessee Williams’ mighty play, and his troubled, eccentric heroine, unravel before our very eyes.

Saratoga Arts' Soiree
At our 2016 Annual Soiree in November, we recognized Dee Sarno with Saraoga Arts’ Community Arts Leadership Award. 2016 was Saratoga Arts’ 30th Anniversary, and it was an especially good year to honor and celebrate our founding Executive Director from 1988-2007. Dee’s impact on the arts in Saratoga is unmatched and, in addition to her visionary leadership of Saratoga Arts, her service has benefited other organizations, including Homemade Theater, The Saratoga NAACP, SPAC, and Saratoga ArtsFest.
The evening also featured the gypsy jazz of Hot Club Saratoga, light fare, a cash bar and a silent auction including amazing vacation packages and unique works of art.
Special thanks to Longfellows Restaurant for generously supporting this event.
The funds that we raised during this event are used to promote and develop community art-making and appreciatation for the arts through our camps, classes, galleries and out-reach programming, year-round. We look forward to seeing you all next year!
