Sheep Dip 50!

John Ascuaga's Nugget Showroom, 1100 Nugget Avenue, Sparks, NV

The 50th anniversary of SHEEP DIP! - ~~~ the biggest little craziest community satire show in the world! 2 NIGHTS! January 17th and 18th at 8:00 at the famous Nugget Showroom!

  WHAT IS SHEEP DIP??? The name Sheep Dip is drawn from Nevada's early heritage of sheep herding in the Sierra Nevada. Sheep Dip is a cleansing element in which sheep are literally dipped. Today we dip our newsmakers in the satirical vat of Sheep Dip to cleanse them of their past deeds...so that they may go right back and be foolish again! Begun by members of the advertising agencies and media in Reno, this annual fundraiser show, dedicated to exposing the follies and foibles of the Truckee Meadows in an evening of skits, songs and dance, is performed by area locals (your neighbors) along with members of the media and even a few of our famous (and infamous) politicians. Together efforts go to raise funds that support charitable activities in the RENO/SPARKS and Greater Northern Nevada Area. Sheep Dip, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. My dad, Don "Snoshu" Thompson, was involved in Sheep Dip as a writer, performer, and director for over 30 years. I performed with him in the cast since I was about 12 years old for several years, and have come back now and then as a guest performer. This year I am a guest artist for the 50th anniversary edition! Should be quite a blast! And if you've never been --- come share a crazy night with us and see what all the talk was about! Dine early in one of the 6 delightful restaurants at the Nugget. Out-of-towners can book rooms here.
