Announcing our 2022
Summer Season at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre!
Boy, could we all use a good laugh right now or what?!
That's why Main Street Theatre Works is planning a summer season of
comedy, satire, and Elvis!
Kicking off our season is the very fun “Who’s on First” comedy, The Outsider,
about the wacky side of politics, which is pretty much every side, especially if you’re an “outsider.” Ned Newley is an extremely competent behind-the-scenes Lieutenant Governor,
who is suddenly thrust into the national spotlight when the Governor and his staff are ousted
for “bad behavior.” Now Ned and his Chief of Staff, Dave, who has no staff at all,
have to figure out how to keep Ned from having a panic attack every time he’s in public.
So Dave has swung into action and recruited a skilled pollster and a savvy “fix it man.”
He’s also hired a temporary secretary, Louise Peakes, who is cheerful and confident, but can’t get names straight or know how to operate a telephone system,
which is why she’s more temp than most temps.
And when Louise photo-bombs Ned’s television interview, introducing herself as
Assistant Governor, the race is on, and politics was never so funny.

Four Weddings & an Elvis
by Nancy Frick
directed by Allen Pontes
Welcome to Vegas, baby, for Four Weddings & an Elvis!
Sandy, the four-times-married-three-times-divorced owner of a wedding chapel in Las Vegas,
has seen it all ~ Bev and Stan, getting married as revenge on their exes,
Vanessa and Bryce, two aging stars tying the knot as a publicity stunt,
and Martin and Fiona, a gentle postal-worker and a tough ex-con who couldn’t be more in love!
But love may have to wait as Sandy deals with the absence of her minister husband
who can’t seem to pry himself away from the bottle long enough to perform a ceremony. Circumstances lead to knots being tied by an escaped con, a good friend and neighbor,
and of course, Elvis. In this hilarious and heart-warming romantic comedy,
we witness four of Sandy’s most memorable weddings,
including a couple finally achieving their happily ever after.
Runs August 12th - September 10th
