The fire started in the Change House, with significant smoke and soot damage. Display cabinets and artifacts had to be taken down and cleaned; everything has to be removed, prior to a professional cleaning of the structure. It will take a great deal of work to recreate displays, but luckily the models and most of the artifacts will be okay after professional cleaning. All of this takes many volunteer hours, as well as money for cleaning and rebuilding.
Main Street Theatre Works, who performs every summer at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre, wanted to find a way to help their partners at the Kennedy Mine Foundation, so the board decided that MSTW would donate 50% of their net ticket sales from the September 1 showing of The Crucible. Tickets can be purchased on line at mstw.org, at Hein & Company on Main Street, Jackson, or at the gate. The gates open at 6:30 for picnics, show starts at 8pm.
The Crucible is Arthur Miller’s explosive account of the famous Salem witch trials, and it 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 now through September 9, with the special KMF Fundraising performance Friday, September 1. Buy your tickets now and show your support.
Main Street Theatre Works is a professionally oriented, non-profit theatre company, performing in the heart of Amador County. The setting for the show is truly spectacular. The amphitheatre is located on the Kennedy Mine property. Patrons walk past the newly repaired tailing wheel #1, across the old Main Street 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. The Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre is located at 1127 N. Main Street in Jackson.
