Gold Hill theater presents ‘Shrew’
After producing 20 original one-act plays in more than 130 performances, the Gold Hill Theater Troupe has decided to begin its fifth year by presenting one of Shakespeare’s funniest comedies, “The Taming of the Shrew.” It will be presented outdoors at the Gold Hill Hotel Gazebo Theater at 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the first three weekends in August – that is Aug., 5, 6, 7, 12, 13,14, 19, 20, 21.
Come watch Petrucio work his clever strategy to turn the capricious, unruly and headstrong Katharina into a loving, obedient and pleasant mate.
Have dinner at the comfortably elegant Gold Hill Hotel in Gold Hill, reserve a picnic dinner for $15 or bring your own. The Gazebo bar opens at 5 p.m., pre-show entertainment starts at 6 p.m. and the play begins at 8 p.m. For reservations call (775) 847-0111. Reserved table seating is $33 per person and assigned seating is $24 per person.
The Gold Hill Theater Troupe is a group of talented and dedicated amateur actors, writers and directors. It was organized in 2001 as a nonprofit corporation with the purpose of presenting plays in Northern Nevada. During the past four years the group has presented plays at The Gold Hill Hotel, Pipers Opera House, The Gold Hill Gazebo and Bowers Mansion.
Workshop focus will be plein air
A two-day plein-air watercolor class with Nevada watercolorist Lady Jill Mueller has been scheduled Aug. 22-23 at Lake Tahoe. Participants will meet at 8:30 a.m. and class will begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 1 p.m. both days. The class fee is $105.
The class is limited to 12 people and it is highly suggested that students have experience painting on location. Each day begins with a demonstration by Lady Jill, followed by student painting with Lady Jill’s assistance, and ends with a group critique. A materials list will be sent upon receipt of registration with class fee.
