“All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream!”


Silver Stage Players and DLC present Poe & Pints. Poe & Pints will return this Fall to haunt us with tantalizing tales of the macabre. The combination of Edgar Allan Poe and other writer's works combined with a curated beer selection makes this the "must see" event of the year and an unique experience for the community of Elko. The Elko Daily Free Press Readers’ Choice multiple Bronze award winner for “Best Annual Event” Poe & Pints is an evening of theater that should not be missed! The project was first conceived in 2014 by Frank Sawyer and further developed with the help of Jennifer Anderson, John Wright, Erika Patrick, and Derek Burwell. Continuing Frank’s work, Derek Burwell directs for the third year. It’s just not October without what the Elko Daily Free Press called, “an evening of refreshingly original entertainment." We look forward to having you as our guest!
