Moffitt's powerful drama.

Adapted by Patrick Barlow and directed by Bob Barsanti, The 39 Steps is based on the classic movie by the same name. Four actors play many roles in this hilarious adaptation that recently enjoyed successful New York and San Francisco runs. This Nevada premiere of The 39 Steps opens October 14 and plays through November 12, 2011 enjoying a post show opening night champagne reception. The shows run Thursdays through Saturdays with evening shows at 8:00 pm with one Wednesday night show during the run. The Sunday matinee on November 6 is followed by a talkback with the company and audience. The doors open a half an hour before curtain time.

Hansel & Gretel

Brüka Theatre proudly presents Brüka's Theatre For Children. These live theatre performances incorporate physical theatrics, improvisation and audience interaction. These classic adaptations of tales by the Brothers Grimm update the stories for today’s audiences, while investigating and adapting the original stories of the Brothers Grimm, how they have been handed down by word of mouth from generation to generation until the Grimm Brother’s captured them in book form in the late 1800’s, and how it could be applied today. Brüka Theatre has been presenting live theatre for our community for 19 years.
