The Writers’ Spotlight Hits the Stage!
Silver Stage Players present an evening of one acts to showcase the talent of local playwrights. The Writers’ Spotlight features the works of Savannah Flores, Curtis Moore, and Gail Rappa in a theatrical debut that celebrates what the Elko art community has to offer.
Be prepared for a heartfelt look at those left behind during World War II in Savannah Flores’, A Blue Letter.
Explore the comedic machinations of demonic invention with, Behavioral Science: Case Studies on the Effect of Perspective-Shifting Stimuli in Human Environments (or Scientific Progress Goes AHHHHHH!) from Curtis Moore.
And, enjoy the mystical meeting between a fortune teller with her old lover that speaks to the creative battles within an artist’s soul in Gail Rappa’s Fortune’s Seamstress.
It will be an evening of theater you will not want to miss! Show dates are July 19th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd at the Northeastern Nevada Museum. Tickets are $10 cash only at the door. Show starts at 7:00 pm.
