This fundraiser helps to set the stage for MSTW's upcoming Summer Season at the beautiful Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre, located in the heart of Jackson. Kicking off the season is the hilarious and fast-paced comedy, Doublewide, Texas. The inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas-four doublewides and a shed-are thrown for a loop when they realize the nearby town of Tugaloo is determined to annex them. Mayhem escalates as the residents attempt to secede from Texas, discover a traitor in their midst, and then turn the tables in a surprising and side-splitting finale. The show runs June 23rd - July 22nd.
Our second show is The Crucible, Arthur Miller's explosive look at the famous Salem witch trials. It has the intensity of a thriller, but is also a cautionary tale of extremism that can lead to dangerous mass hysteria. The Crucible runs August 11th through September 9th.
While MSTW looks forward to another spectacular Summer Season, we can't do it without a successful Spring Fundraiser, so put the dates on your calendar. Seating for this event is very limited so purchase your tickets today. The price of admission includes not only the show, but some fabulous desserts, tea/coffee, and the joy of knowing you're supporting one of Amador County's best professional-quality theatre companies. Main Street Theatre Works would like to thank our sponsors Sue Hepworth of Coldwell Banker Sutter Creek Assoicates, and Bella Grace Vineyards.
