Main Street Theatre Works Starts The Season With Southern Comedy

Main Street Theatre Works (MSTW) is pleased to kick off their 2017 Summer Season at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre in Jackson with Doublewide, Texas, by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, directed by Allen Pontes.

Doublewide, Texas is a hilarious, fast-paced comedy about the inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas, made up of some of the state's most colorful characters including Big Ethel Satterwhite (GeorgAnn Wallace), Georgia Dean Rudd (Kelley Ogden), Larken Barken (Devon La Bar) and the whole Crumpler family (Janet Motenko, Julie Anchor & Brandon Rapoza.) It's one big happy life, except for Haywood Sloggett (Chris Witt), the curmudgeon from across the road, who loathes their "trailer-trash" ways. But these friends and foes will have to work together to defeat an encroaching annexation if they, and their way of life, have a snowball's chance to survive being swallowed up by "the big guys." The rollicking mayhem escalates as the residents attempt to secede from Texas, discover a traitor in their midst, and turn the tables in a surprising and side-splitting finale. Earl Victorine and Bethany Hidden round out the cast as Lomax Tanner & Starla Pudnehy. So grab your Stetson and come on over to Doublewide, Texas, where life is double the fun, and you'll double over with laughter! Doublewide, Texas runs June 23rd - July 22nd.

Main Street Theatre Works is a professionally oriented theatre company, performing in the heart of Amador County. Now entering its 23rd season, MSTW continues to be dedicated to bringing professional and community theatre artists together to produce classical and contemporary plays, striving for a balance that stimulates both artists and audiences.

The setting for the amphitheatre is truly spectacular. Located on the Kennedy Mine property, patrons walk past an old tailing wheel (used when the mine was in operation), across an old bridge, into a grass-covered, terraced bowl, surrounded by majestic oaks. There the stage is set for picnicking and enjoying professional quality productions. You are truly sitting on a gold mine, enjoying theatre under the stars.

Performances are Friday and Saturday nights, with gates opening at 6:30, show starting at 8:00. Patrons are encouraged to come early with picnics, chairs and jackets. The Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre is located at 1127 N. Main Street in Jackson.
