The Valley Institute of Theater Arts of Saratoga, Calif., will perform Two Gentlemen of Verona, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and The Count of Monte Cristo in repertory through August 25 at Sand Harbor State Park in Incline Village. Two Gentlemen of Verona director John Hertzler (whose television and film credits include "Partners in Crime" and "And Justice for All") promises a rollicking time will be had by all in this updated roaring-twenties version of the Shakespearian classic comedy. Directing A Midsummer Night's Dream will be Janice Hutchins, a featured director at American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. Ms. Hutchins will weave Shakespeare's intermingled plots of young lovers, lovers' triangles, mischievious sprites, and comically earnest rustics into a mystic evening of beauty, romance and laughter. In keeping with VITA's tradition of presenting two Shakespearian plays and a related swashbuckler, the Alexander Dumas story The Count of Monte Cristo will also be performed. J. Steven White, winner of the Bay Area Critics Award for his fight choreography in VITA's 1983 production of "The Three Musketeers," will direct. White sums up The Count of Monte Cristo as an "adventure story that involves a lot of sword and gun play. "But," he adds, "it's psychologically complex, which makes it a great story." All three plays promise to captivate both young and old alike with tales of comedy, adventure, romance, and revenge. For the first time this year the Fine Arts Council is making tickets available in advance in order to avoid the long lines at the gate. Tickets can be obtained through August 25th at High Country Silverworks, Spectrum Gallery, and The Watermelon Patch in Tahoe City, Artruckee in Truckee, Tahoe Crafts Printing in Kings Beach, Village Hallmark in Incline Village, The Deadhead in South Lake Tahoe, Brewery Arts Center in Carson City, and Sierra Arts Foundation in Reno.

As a special treat for weekend audiences (Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings), the Sherwood Forest Street for 250,000 hours. That is 10,416 days or 28 and a half years. No more parking problems. A million nickels will buy you 400,000 local telephone calls at pay phones in Reno, more in most other parts of the country. Or call New York and talk for a couple of years as you keep putting nickels in the phone. If you took a million nickels and put them in a giant roll of coins, it would be longer than 208 football fields placed end to end. Fitzgeralds Million Coin Carousel is the centerpiece of the casino's Virginia Street entrance. There are 18 nickel machines and 18 quarter machines with million coin jackpots. It's just a lowly nickel. You can hardly buy a stick of gum with it anymore. In Reno, it takes five nickels just to make a local phone call. About the only place it's any good is in a parking meter. In downtown Reno, it will buy you 15 minutes of street parking. And it's small. A nickel is just over l16th of an inch thick. Stack 10 of them up and your pile will only be about of an inch high. At Fitzgeralds CasinoHotel in downtown Reno, there's a Million Coin slot machine carousel where you can win a million nickels. Let's talk parking. For a million nickels, you can park in a Reno space C p 00 I 01 Sunday Family Dinner Snow Specials Dinner Shows every Sunday thru August 25th. y ((j aj is i yv - eo- Now bring the kids and enjoy a special Sunday family dinner show performance of "Hello Hollywood, Hello!"
