Silver State Stars present 'Pistols and Posies' play

Silver State High School’s performing arts group the Silver State Stars presents “Pistols and Posies,” starting tonight running through Sunday.

Set during Prohibition, this light-hearted comedy is family friendly.

Everything’s coming up roses for gangster Primo Malvone in 1920s Chicago — or so his wife Isabella thinks. She’s under the impression that Primo finally got out of “the business” to become a florist. But he’s in deeper than ever — his accountant has disappeared with $50,000, rival mob boss Mama Mia wants a meeting, and important businessman Rico Linguini is in town looking for a new supplier.

When Isabella’s famous opera singer brother comes to town, she decides to throw him a party and sends Primo’s henchmen off to get flowers from the warehouse. Making things even worse for Primo, Isabella then invites Mama Mia and her thugs to the party, and the conniving Mama Mia turns around and invites the cops.

Meanwhile, Primo’s three daughters and the missing accountant hatch a plot to make Primo get out of “the business” and go straight, once and for all.

No shooting, no drinking, no gambling — just fun colorful characters, slapstick comedy and a surprise ending that everyone will love.
