“Make Believe” at the Nevada Theatre

Through Sunday, February 3, various times, Nevada Theatre, $20-$30


It’s the second and final week to catch Dalrymple MacAlpin’s newest play, Make Believe. Follow the make-believe exploits of six sisters (Wendel, Wanda, Winky, Florence, Fern and Fand) as they find themselves in an orphanage run by their less-than-ideal aunt, kept from their happy lives with their mother, who’s a goodly fairy. Featuring music two years in the making performed by a nine-piece chamber orchestra, this original work by puppeteer/playwright/poet/person of many interests is guaranteed whimsical. 401 Broad Street in Nevada City, dalrymplemacalpin.com.
