“It was wonderful,” said Mary Lou Linder, Stillwater, who was among the audience members who gave a standing ovation to the actors at The Zephyr Theatre Saturday night.

“A Streetcar Named Desire,” presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company, “was very professional,” said Cyndee Christensen, Hudson, Wis.

The Tennessee Williams’ classic drama centers on a heartbroken Southern belle who seeks refuge with her sister and brother-in-law in a New Orleans tenement. The performance opened last weekend at the Stillwater theatre and continues for two more weeks.

“This was the first show I’ve seen in which I liked the whole cast. It was so cohesive,” said Danielle Bebus, Somerset, Wis. The cast of 11 includes members of the Actors Equity Association and is directed by Peter Moore, an acclaimed director and actor with numerous credits from the Guthrie Theater and other venues.

“What an amazing show,” said Brian Erdrich, a theater director and performer from Somerset, Wis. “The greatest part for me was seeing such great talent in the valley.”

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 7:30 p.m. Fridays, 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Saturdays, 2:30 p.m. Sundays through Aug. 4. Tickets, $18 to $45, are available at stillwaterzephyrtheatre.org or at the door. The Zephyr Theater is located at 601 Main. St. N., Stillwater.
