Stage pick of the week

In the 1800s, a young woman named Emma Nevada was growing up in the small town of Austin, Nev. She was loved in her hometown and eventually went on to study in Vienna, and then to become as famous an opera singer as Luciano Pavarotti is today. Sparks Little Theater presents Emma Nevada in all her glory, 7 p.m. March 29. Tickets are $10 and $5 for ages 12 and under. The performance is held at Piper’s Opera House, 12 North "B" St., Virginia City. Call 324-7932.
