2010/2011 Season at Brüka Theatre

September 29, 2010

Brüka Theatre proudly announces the 2010/2011 Brüka Theatre season of live theatre in downtown Reno. The first play of the season, Psycho Beach Party and Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, is a hilarious and campy vamp of an evening. The two one acts, written by Charles Busch in the mid eighties enjoy comedy to the hilt with directors Jamie Plunkett and Adam Whitney at the helm.

November hails the return of Brüka’s original hit Buttcracker III – the Resurrection. This parody of the Nutcracker takes the audience on an experience they may never forget when the scheduled ballet company is caught in a snowstorm and Brüka thespians are forced to dance the roles in the classic ballet.

In January of 2011, Dave Anderson directs William Shakespeare’s Richard III. This notorious and gripping play is the tale of a brutal and gruesome ascent to power with clever and witty elements that take great joy in the irony of actions versus motivations.

Comedy comes back in full force with The Complete History of America (Abridged) written by the Reduced Shakespeare Company and co-directed by Mary Bennett and Michael Grimm featuring some of the snappiest, sappiest moments from America’s deep and profound history.

April 2010 Tom Plunkett directs Mr. Beiderman and The Firebugs written by Max Fritch. This political farce demonstrates that sometimes there is nothing more dangerous than an “upstanding” citizen and provides an entertaining and unwavering look into how people tend to ignore the evil that surrounds them.

Presented May – June, Brüka’s musical Angry Housewives provides a genial satire of contemporary feminism as four housewives form a punk rock band to pull themselves out of a rut. Directed by Mary Bennett with Musical Direction by Bill Quinby and Choreography by Adam Whitney.

July 2011 is Hot and Throbbing Greek Month at Brüka. The featured Main stage performance will include two one-act presentations – Oedipus the King and a Brüka original, The Medea Project. With Greek month we will also present Toga Bohemia and an end of the year Greek Party on July 30, 2011. We will continue to present 4 original staged reading during the season, and will create and present Late Night TV Shows. These half hour TV parodies will run Saturday evenings at 11 PM January – May 2011.

Brüka Theatre is at 99 N. Virginia Street (corner 1st St.) in downtown Reno. For more information about tickets and to make reservations, call the box office at (775) 323-3221.
