Big Thinkers

Big Thinkers is a farsighted group of supporters who value smart theater and ensure STT’s ability to produce a classic play biennially. For 2020 the classic production is A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams. Streetcar is widely considered to be among the top tier of great American plays that still maintains its poignancy seventy years after its groundbreaking premiere.  Streetcar will run from July 22 – August 15.

We are now accepting online donations through our Square site.
