THE FOREIGNER
THURSDAYS-SUNDAYS THROUGH JUNE 16
RENO LITTLE THEATER

 

This fun and funny farce from the 1980’s just happens to have renewed relevance at the moment. Through the goofiness of it all, there is a true reflection of the ongoing battle between closed-mindedness and open-heartedness in Reno Little Theater’s production of The Foreigner.  Written by the late American playwright Larry Shue, The Foreigner features local actors in Reno’s volunteer-driven and longest-running community theater.  Now located in Midtown Reno, you’re invited to settle in and enjoy the intimate experience at Reno Little Theater.  For more info, online ticket sales and special offers, please visit RenoLIttleTheater.org.

ARNEL PINEDA
SUNDAY, MAY 26 (8 pm)
SILVER LEGACY – GRAND EXPOSITION HALL

 

Don’t Stop Believin‘” in Arnel Pineda, lead singer of Journey since 2007.  This mega-star was born in Manila, Philippines, and had a challenging life at an early age to say the least.  After his mother’s passing when he was 13 years old, Pineda’s father struggled financially and was unable to pay rent, causing him to move out of their apartment and ask relatives to take in his siblings.  To ease his family’s financial burdens, Arnel lived on the streets for about two years, sleeping on benches, taking odd jobs and collecting recyclables for meager money.  At 15, he began singing with a band that performed at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor in Manila. He’s modest beginnings continued as he became the frontman of several other cover bands, until Journey lead guitarist Neal Schon discovered Pineda on YouTube.  Journey needed a lead singer, and the rest is history.  Here is a cool “raw footage video” of him singing a few Queen songs in an intimate nightclub.  Enjoy Pineda live and get tickets to see him live at SilverLegacyReno.com.
