Silver Stage Players Present The Little Princess!

The Little Princess.The production will take place at the Northeastern Nevada Museum’s Theater. There will be evening performances on Thursday, November 17th; Friday, November 18th; and Saturday, November 19th; as well as a matinee on Saturday, November 19th. Evening performances will start at 6:30 PM; the matinee will start at 1:30 PM. Seating will begin half-an-hour before the show. Tickets are $10 for adults (18 years and older); $7 for children (under 18), students (with ID), and seniors (60 years and older); and $30 for a family pack (2 adult + 2 child).

The Silver Stage Players is the oldest community theatre organization in Elko, founded in the 1930’s. Over the years SSP has put on numerous productions, many of which are firsts for Elko. Among other things, SSP opened the Great Basin College Theatre in 1995 with Damn Yankees, has put on productions in locations as diverse as the Eureka Opera House and the Jarbidge Community Center, has done dinner theater in the Elko Convention Center, put up Lysistrata in the Great Basin College Amphitheater, and has done live radio theater. Recent productions include As You Like It (as part of the Elko Theatre Coalition), The Man of Destiny, the third bi-annual Bard in the Yard, The Last U.S. Mail Stage Coach Robbery, and The Pirates of Penzance (with the Great Basin College Theatre program).

SSP’s Children’s Theatre productions are an opportunity for those under 18 in the community to be involved as actors in a production with their peers. Everyone on stage is under 18, though there are adults that help with the technical and backstage production aspects. The children in this performance have been working for weeks getting into characters and learning lines – some of which (due to the age of the script) are somewhat foreign to a modern youngster.

The Little Princess was written in 1902 by Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett, based upon a short story written years earlier, and later expanded into the book A Little Princess. The script for this show is (as far as the director can determine) the same script as was used in the show that opened in the autumn of 1902 in London, billed as A Little Un-Fairy Princess (the next year shortened to A Little Princess). When it opened in New York in 1903, the title The Little Princess was used instead. Many theater (and even movie) productions have been produced since.

The Northeastern Nevada Museum’s Theater is a unique venue for a show. With 90 seats on a rotating platform, three stages, and a projection screen, there are many opportunities for staging and productions that may not work on a normal stage. This production will use all three stages, one for each act of the show.

Performances will be approximately two hours in length, including a 10-minute intermission between the first and second acts and a 5-minute intermission between the second and third acts.

Tickets will be available at the door. For those wishing to have tickets held for them, please ask a cast member or message SSP on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SSPElko/.
