An event every week that begins at 8:00pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating until September 9, 2017
From rollicking comedy to an Arthur Miller classic, MSTW is proud to present The Crucible, directed by Susan McCandless. Salem, Massachusetts, 1692: When the girls of this small, devout town, under the malign spell of their ringleader Abigail Williams, accuse countless decent people of witchcraft, fear, anger and injustice rip apart the village. Only gradually does it become clear that Abigail has her own motives for revenge. Arthur Miller’s explosive account of the famous Salem witch trials caused a sensation with its parallels to the Communist scares of the 1950s, and remains one of his most enduring classics. 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 – September 9th.
Main Street Theatre Works is a professionally oriented theatre company, performing in the heart of Amador County. Now entering its 23 rd 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.
