Pensacola Little Theatre, Inc. – “Desire!”
For many of us, Tennessee Williams serves as one of the most brilliant and inspiring Southern authors and playwrights of all time. Whether Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Glass Menagerie, or Sweet Bird of Youth, every audience has heard of Williams and his iconic dramas. A Streetcar Named Desire, one of Williams’ most recognizable works, often tops the shortlists of finest American plays of the 20th century.
On the other hand, parody playwright Christopher Durang and his “bless their heart” mentality – is both loved and intensely followed by theatergoers and bookworms alike, taking audiences for a ride as he throws Williams’ well-known Streetcar off its tracks.
Durang’s original, steamy Southern silliness transforms literary classics, A Streetcar Named Desire (now Desire, Desire, Desire) and The Glass Menagerie (now For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls) into over-the-top parodies, giving audiences a laughable production they can sink their teeth into. Taking a break from more serious drama to tread the tightrope between the real and the surreal, audiences experience Durang’s art of turning subtext into text, as characters speak what is ordinarily left unspoken.

Pensacola Bay Concert Band (PBCB) – “Across America”
You don’t want to miss our multimedia concert on Monday, November 5, 2018. This year marks the Pensacola Bay Concert Band’s fourth Foo Foo Festival-funded event. This Monday evening event will continue the weekend’s Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival’s focus on art and music.
Founded in November of 2014, the Pensacola Bay Concert Band (PBCB) started with a wish, prayer, and nine (9) musicians. Our Band focuses on adults who may have played an instrument in school, but have not had the opportunity to play with an organized group in many years. Now at 90 members who range in age from 18-80, the Band provides music as an art form and a no-cost cultural activity for the community and visitors.
