Carson Performing Arts production of Tom Stoppard's dark comedy, "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead," opens at the Carson Community Center on Friday.
The two extraneous characters from Shakespeare's "Hamlet" ponder the meaning of life and their own unavoidable death as they deal with the balance between reality and insanity.
Directed and produced by Karen Chandler, performances will be 7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday and Jan. 25-26 and 2 p.m. Sunday and Jan. 27. Seating is limited for this production, as the audience and the set are all placed on the stage at the Community Center in an intimate setting.
Tickets are available at the door or via e-mail at boxoffice@carson.K12.nv.us
