Kranzberg-Strauss Challenge Grant

Support the Magic of Tennessee Williams


Our mission continues to be to enrich the cultural life of St. Louis by presenting a host of high-quality artistic and educational events that celebrate the art of Tennessee Williams. We are especially proud of our outreach to hundreds of under-served students, and of our collaborations with arts organizations here and around the world. And we are delighted to announce a thrilling new production of A Streetcar Named Desire, with an original score and a brilliant cast, which headlines our May 2018 festival at the gloriously renovated Grandel Theatre. Your generous gift in this, our Streetcar year, will help ensure that future generations will experience the magic of America’s most celebrated playwright, our very own Tennessee Williams.

Ken and Nancy Kranzberg and Mary Strauss invite you to join them in advancing one of the most exciting and vital young arts organizations in the region—the Tennessee Williams Festival St. Louis. Each are founding board members, and together, they have established the Kranzberg-Strauss Challenge Grant.

You can help meet the challenge with your new or increased tax-deductible donation, which will ensure the lasting brilliance of this new jewel in our cultural crown.
