Genoa to celebrate the Wild West

Provided to the Tribune

Genoa will celebrate the Wild West through Sunday.

Guests are invited to see the early days of Nevada through the eyes of Eilley Bowers, famous “Queen of the Comstock,” and Julia Bulette, Virginia City’s most beloved “working girl.” With their dislike for one another, the comedy and the drama will unfold on the stage of Genoa’s Historic Town Hall.

In this original two-act play by CobwebPalace Productions, Eilley Bowers is played by Lisa Bommarito, who has a background in performing arts. Julia Bulette is played by Kim Cop, a local historian. Both women are residents of Genoa and longtime locals to the Sierra Nevada Community.

Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Doors open one hour prior to each performance. No-host cocktails, a raffle and an exclusive fortune teller will be included in the festivities. Period attire is encouraged.

Tickets cost $12 and all seating is general admission. Tickets can be purchased at the Genoa Town Office, 782-8696; Genoa Trading Co., 782-0991; and Sweet Repeats, 309-3133. Will call tickets can be purchased by contacting Lisa Bommarito 782-3893 or Kim Cop at 220-0605.

Part of the proceeds will benefit the Town of Genoa.
