You make a difference

Main Street Theatre Works started as a non-profit theatre company 26 years ago

at the Sutter Creek Theatre. For the past 19 years, we have performed

at the beautiful Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre in Jackson.

We've brought to life the drama of The Last Lifeboat and To Kill a Mockingbird

to the silliness of Kong's Night Out and Doublewide, Texas

Last summer we presented The Outsider & Four Weddings and an Elvis,

plus the centennial commemoration of the Argonaut mine disaster with our production of Gold Fire.

We are proud to have our roots in the community while bringing patrons from outside Amador county in to see this "gem of the motherlode."

And we want to continue our mission, ". . . to create rich seasons and wonderful theatrical experiences." 

Keeping our outdoor venue healthy, building sets and putting together productions takes money,

as well as many volunteers. We can use both.

If you've enjoyed picnicking on the terraces with family and friends, followed by

live theatre under the stars, please consider donating to MSTW so we can continue to bring you

professional-quality theatre in a family-friendly environment. And on November 29th, your donations go even further through matching funds from generous sponsors.

We hope you'll continue to support Main Street Theatre Works.
