NOISES OFF!
PLAYING THRU SATURDAY, APRIL 4 (DAYS VARY BY WEEK)
GOOD LUCK MACBETH THEATRE

It’s Weekend #2 of Michael Frayn’s Noises Off at Good Luck Macbeth Theatre this weekend!  The play, brimming with slapstick comedy, takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. It is more specifically a play-within-a-play that captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of ‘Nothing On’ in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run.  Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. This delightful production runs through April 4!  For tickets and more info, please visit GoodLuckMacbeth.org.

THE IMAGINARY INVALID
FRI-SUN, MAR 13-15 , THURS-SUN, MAR 19-22 & THURS-SUN, MAR 26-29

RENO LITTLE THEATER

All troubles, real & imaginary, are relieved by laughter in this slapstick comedy at Reno Little Theatre. The Imaginary Invalid is a zany little production about a hypochondriac who complains of a million imaginary ailments consequently drumming up astronomical medical bills. He concocts a plan to wed his daughter to a doctor in hopes of receiving free medical care, but she has her eye on another.  Written by Moliére and adopted by Milles Malleson, this local play opens this weekend and runs through March.  For show days/times and more info, please visit RenoLittleTheatre.org.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN OYSTER FRY

Know what they are?  The look of the bull in the image above says it all.

Blend a little Reggae rock and alternative rock, a touch of hip hop, and a dash of ska punk and punk rock, and what do you get?  Sublime with Rome. The band is a collaboration between former bassist of the band Sublime, Eric Wilson, and singer/guitarist Rome Ramirez.  The group was initially known as Sublime back in 1988.  Sadly, in 1996, Sublime’s lead singer Bradley Nowell died of a heroine overdose.  Profoundly affected by that tragic event, Wilson never considered performing the group’s music live without their frontman. More than a decade later however, he met young singer/guitarist Rome Ramirez, and the Sublime flame was once again reignited. You’ll likely recognize them in familiar songs like “Santeria,” “What I Got” and “Badfish.”  For more about Sublime with Rome, and to purchase tickets in advance, visit GrandSierraResort.com.
