Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry are pleased to present the March installment of Theater By the Book on March 15, 2023 in the Stone Hall at the Miners Foundry.  Doors open at 6:00 p.m., the Theatre opens at 6:30 p.m. and the Performance begins at 7:00 p.m.  The Miners Foundry offers a full bar with snacks available for purchase. Outside food may be brought into the venue but no outside alcohol or glass.

Hurlyburly by David Rabe is a play reading directed by Christi Colombo.

Language is chaos and the cocaine flows freely in this darkly comedic drama.  A study of male immaturity and the corrosive effects of toxic masculinity before the term existed, Hurlyburly is a brutal take on Hollywood culture in the 1980s.  Written by David Rabe and nominated for a Tony Award, this tale of existential excess and isolation will have you gripping the edge of your seat.

This is not a show for all ages or the faint of heart!

Theater By the Book

2023 Welcomes the 11th season of Theater by the Book!  Theater by the Book is a series of informal play readings presented by Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry Cultural Center.  Theater By the Book is presented several times a year and features a wide range of works.  The director and actors come together and rehearse for a short time; there is no scenery, no costumes, and minimal staging.  Check out Theater By the Book and expand your theatrical horizons!
