2020 Summer Season 

Cancelled . . .

It is with great disappointment, but necessary responsibility, that Main Street Theatre Works is cancelling our 2020 Summer Season at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre, due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We were so looking forward to the fun shows we’d picked for the season ~ Kong’s Night Out and A Little Murder Never Hurt Anybody ~ and to working with our amazing casts and crew. But fear not! We will be presenting both of these shows in our 2021 Summer Season. Both of our casts have been invited back to perform next year and, as of now, all have made the commitment.

As you can imagine, losing our two summer productions is a great hardship on our company, not only financially but from a morale standpoint. We get such pleasure performing at the beautiful Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre for our amazing patrons, and we know you enjoy watching theatre under the stars. If you have purchased single or season tickets for the 2020 Summer Season via PayPal on our website, we hope you’ll consider donating your ticket purchase to the theatre, or rolling over the purchase for our 2021 Summer season. If you’ve paid cash or know that you’d like a refund, please send us an email via our contact page.
That all said, to help us all get through this uncertain time, we are planning an event that we hope will satisfy our artistic needs, your entertainment needs, and will help our financial needs. See below for details on our Virtual Fundraising Event. Thank you for your continued support of Main Street Theatre Works.
Be well.

To tease next summer’s show, Kong’s Night Out, we’re putting together a fun virtual fundraising event called “Kong’s Night IN!”  Our cast will be doing a staged reading of just the first act of Kong’s Night Out, as we don’t want to spoil the ending for next year. The event will be shown on Facebook, Saturday, June 20th at 7:00pm as a live event, and it will also be broadcast on KVGC Radio 1340AM, or 96.5 FM, in Amador county. 

There will be an opportunity for you to make a donation throughout the performance, and we hope you’ll support us just as you would have during the summer.  As an added bonus, Associate Artistic Director, Julie Anchor, will have an interview with Jack Neary, the playwright of Kong’s Night Out, to find out his process in writing this crazy play, and if he’s a true fan of the 1933 film.


If you make a donation before June 12th, we’ll send you a bag of microwave popcorn to enjoy during “Kong’s Night IN”. Just make sure we have your mailing address. Watch our website and Facebook page for more specifics as we get closer to the June 20th event.
