Stage pick of the week

Nevada Shakespeare Festival will present The Acolyte at 7 p.m. Jan. 18 in the Laxalt Auditorium of the Nelson Building, 401 W. First St. The play, performed by Jeanmarie Simpson and Cameron Crain, reflects on author Maggy Anthony’s work in women’s studies, Jungian thought and the interpretation of dreams. Because the play deals with adult themes, no one under 18 will be admitted. Tickets are $12; proceeds benefit the Cooperative Extension Program of the University of Nevada, Reno. Call 324-4198.
