ULM's production of 'A Streetcar Named Desire' tells a story of a changing 1940s New Orleans

Spyker Theatre

The School of Visual Performing Arts (VAPA) at the University of Louisiana Monroe presents A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams. The performances will be held in the Spyker Theatre at the University of Louisiana Monroe from Wednesday, February 8 to Saturday, February 11 at 7:30 pm each night.

A Streetcar Named Desire is set in an evolving 1940s New Orleans, featuring an all-student cast. The famous play has a tragic tone but showcases a different range of acting VAPA at ULM. Casting includes Rebekah Johnson as Blanche and Cherie Mialaret as Stella, Blanche’s sister, with Dr. Mark Ross Clark as director. Mialaret states she could relate to her character, Stella, since she is also from New Orleans and the world is always changing for someone. Guests will also get see other notable characters like Stanley, Stella’s husband and his friend Mitch, two working class men who goof off in their free time.

Online tickets to the show can be found at, General Admission is $10, ULM Faculty and Staff is $5, and ULM Students are admitted free with Student ID. More Information can be found at
