Classic play dates to 1800s in Virginia City, Montana

Take a missing will, an impulsive heroine, a crafty lawyer and a sea-going villain, mix well, and you have 'Miriam's Crime,' a thrilling melodrama as beloved today as it was in the late 1800s, when it was first performed in Virginia City.

Miriam's Crime was performed during the days of stagecoaches and gold nuggets, and it was one of the first three plays performed by the Virginia City Players in Virginia City, Montana, 75 years ago. The Sept. 2-3 performances will be followed by a short vaudeville show.

The show is at the Virginia City Opera House.

One of Montana's most beloved shows is the Brewery Follies, from the Virginia City Players. 

The Brewery Follies is an absurd, wacky, zany, fun-filled, contemporary comedy revue with music in a Cabaret atmosphere that satirizes our political and social culture. Audiences should be prepared to let their hair down and unburden themselves from the everyday world of politically correct blues. There will be song parodies, political satire, impressions, plenty of naughty jokes, and just plain fun.

  • 8 p.m. Wed. through Sat., 4 p.m. Sat. and Sun., Through Sep. 3
