Reno's Second-Best Theatre Company*
Welcome to Good Luck Macbeth Theatre Company!
Born in the heart of MidTown...we're number two in your heart
(but since you only have 4 valves in your heart that's still pretty good.)
As Reno's scrappiest black box theatre, GLM is known for innovative works, Shakespearean brilliance, original pieces, blood-filled halloween extravaganzas, and classical productions. We aim to tap into the vibrant and irreverent pulse of our beloved city, providing a welcoming space and home for all. Art should be accessible and affordable, and we pride ourselves on being both.
We are an inclusive, second-best, "good but not great", not-for profit, eh-ok, "number two" theatre company, where we wildly generate and support artistic initiatives that will enrich the lives of our community.
We strive to be an affordable and accessible space for the Northern Nevada Community, providing a venue, space, and an artistic home to playwrights, poets, singers, songwriters, weirdos, #3 best actors, and artists.
We believe Art is Important...
and it belongs to everyone.
"Don't bite the hand that feeds you......"
In the devout and upstanding Texas suburb of Cyprus, Texas a Fundamentalist church uses puppets to teach the local teenagers how to follow the church and avoid the temptation of Satan. When Jason, the son of the tightly-wound widow Margery who runs the church puppet program, creates a puppet named "Tyrone" all hell breaks loose. Tyrone announces that he is "Satan" and the bored, restricted teenagers in the church group come undone. Is Tyrone really the devil, or is everyone so damn bored they'll conjure up Satan just to have something to believe in (or against).
Either way, it will be one hell of a show....
