YES Education

Main Street Theatre Works has developed a series of five monthly workshops to

introduce high school students to the technical skills needed to produce professional

quality theatre. Those skills include Set Design, Lighting, Sound, Costumes, and a bonus workshop will be offered ~ a tour of the Sacramento Community Center Theatre, and Career Information with IASTE (Stagehands Union). The workshops are open to high school students from Amador and Calaveras Counties (grades 9-12) free of charge and will be held at the Giles Turner Performing Arts Center at Amador High School, Sutter Creek, from 1:00-3:00pm. All workshops will be taught by industry professionals under the supervision of credential teachers.

Students who complete a least four of the five workshops will be eligible to apply for a technical theatre internship for the MSTW 2021 season.

While this year's program is on hold due to Covid-19, we hope you'll check back at the beginning of next year to register for this wonderful, FREE program.

Balcony Club

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at the theatre? Join the Balcony Club and find out. The Balcony Club gives you the opportunity to join other volunteers who do everything from creating the sets, acquiring the props, sewing the costumes, assisting backstage, working in the box office, and the myriad of other tasks that make for a successful stage production. You'll be delighted to see the results of your efforts when you see the plays performed! Many volunteers help out in other ways, too ~ designing play-related artwork, assisting with social media promotion, and even planning parties! Here's your chance to meet other people who share your interest in the theatre. Membership is free, and the rewards are many.

A new area where we need plenty of help is with the continuing development and construction of the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre. If you have a flare for architectural design, construction, landscaping, gardening, or just enjoy working outdoors, we need your help! Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Joanne Shugart.

"Buy a Brick" for the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre

Be a part of local history and help support the arts in the Motherlode by joining the "Paving a Pathway to the Stars" fund-raiser. We have come a long way since our inaugural amphitheatre production of Much Ado About Nothing in 2004: new terraces, accessible walkways, ADA parking, a fully-stocked concessions booth and indoor bathrooms. Become a supporting player in our efforts: purchase an engraved brick, which will then be placed in one of the theatre's walkways. This could be a special gift to a friend or family member - what a wonderful way to remember a loved one! The bricks are $100 each, and may be engraved with a maximum of two lines, no more than 15 characters per line. To purchase a brick, or for more information, contact Susan McCandless, Artistic Director.
