A Bawdy Melodrama of Good, Evil, & Meteorological Events

Virus Theater launches its first in a series of Western melodramas! This original play, developed by the cast, writers, and director in the traditional melodrama style, focuses on southwest New Mexico culture and history. The tone will be saucy and slapstick, the characters classic, and the humor uproarious!

Opening Preview\Fundraiser, Friday, May 18 – 8:00 pm

Virus Theater FALL FESTIVAL

All four of the season's productions will be performed during the three-week festival that will target audiences from near and far to take advantage of the opportunity to spend a few days downtown, catch three to four live Virus Theater shows, and visit Silver City's restaurants, galleries, and shops. This Festival is our prototype for the future of Virus Theater, which will eventually develop a longer theater season, comprising multiple productions.

Performances: Fall Festival, October 12th through 21st
