At one o’clock in the the morning, all kinds of strange things are going on. This army is about to enjoy some well deserved rations to celebrate their victory, and recover from their defeats earlier this evening, as they often met in pitched battle on stage in Winnemucca for their production of Macbeth.

And yes, and the sword fights lived up to their billing, the witches were stunning, the whole performance ran like a watch, and they ALL delivered a terrific performance. They still have four shows on their schedule, and they truly deserve to play to a packed house each night.
Their next show is Friday, October 23 at Piper’s Opera House in Virginia City; and then three performances in Reno at the Laxalt Auditorium, October 29, 30, and 31. ADMISSION: All Reno shows are free. Admission to the Piper’s Opera House show is $15 general and $10 for students and seniors. Tickets will be available at the door.
