‘Quiet On The Set’ continues run

Quick – think “Silent movies.”

Whether your mental projector showed you a moody, melodramatic western, Mel Brooks’ madcap hijinks, or Charlie Chaplin toddling off into the sunset, Truckee’s Knights of Indulgence Theatre United States latest production, Quiet on the Set, has something for you.

Inspired by Knight Brent Lindsay’s “near obsession” with old-time silent films, Quiet on the Set features KITUS-created silent movies interspersed with live (though also silent) action.

The four features are The Sheik’s Tent, The Wind (a Western drama based on an original film), The Doctor’s Cabinet, and Cafe Infidelite, a tribute to Chaplin, Keaton, Laurel and Hardy.

The films, and their accompanying live skits, evoke everything from belly laughs to shocked horror to contemplative reflection.

Showcasing the versatility of the acting Knights through drama, slapstick and horror, Quiet on the Set is an excellent introduction to this one-of-a-kind group of local thespians.

The productions were filmed in and around Truckee and Reno, and show unique interpretations of classic scenarios.

Come experience this unique KITUS take on silent film for yourself.

The show takes place Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Aug. 4, 5, and 6 and 11, 12 and 13 at 8 p.m., at the Capitol Theatre in historic downtown Truckee, (above the Ponderosa Deli.)

Tickets are $10 and $8 in advance and $12 and $10 at the door.
