Main Street Theatre Works is pleased to announce its 2016 Summer Season at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre in Jackson, starting with The Explorers Club, by Nell Benjamin, a comedic look at Victorian adventurers who ponder the mysteries of science and nature, while genteelly getting blotto. It’s 1879 and London’s prestigious Explorers Club is in crisis: their acting president wants to admit a woman, and their bartender is the worst. True, the female candidate is brilliant, beautiful, and has discovered a legendary Lost City, but the decision to let in a woman could shake the very foundation of the British Empire. And how do you make such an important decision without a decent drink? Time Out NY raves, ". . .the most impressive act of mixology belongs to playwright Nell Benjamin, whose comedy recipe goes a little like this: two parts Blackadder, one part Monty Python, a dash of Shaw, shake wildly and garnish with fresh feminist ire." The Explorers Club runs June 24th - July 23rd.

Ticket Prices
Adults - $20.00
Seniors: $17.50
Students/Children 18 & under - $12.00
Family Pack (2 adults/2 students) - $54.00

Suggested items to bring: picnic dinner, wine, jacket (for cool summer evenings), blanket, low-back chair (provided by MSTW for season ticket holders), and mosquito repellant.

Last guided tour starts 1:00pm
 
Thursday July 21, 2016 and  August18, 2016, self guided tours, 10am to 1pm
 
 

Come to Ione and enjoy an informative historical tour of the magnificent Preston Castle and surrounding grounds.  The strikingly beautiful Romanesque style Preston Castle, on a hill in Ione, was actually the administration building for the Preston School of Industry, the first major attempt in California at rehabilitating, instead of just imprisoning, young offenders.  Opened in 1894, the Preston School of Industry became a leader in the juvenile prison reform movement by giving convicted boys a real chance at life by educating them not only in academics, but in all of the useful trades of the time.  Closed in 1960, when the Preston Youth Authority moved into a new administration building down the hill, the Preston Castle was left to deteriorate due to weather, vandalism, and general neglect.  It now serves as a vacant, but vitally important landmark for Ione, Amador County, and the Motherlode.  It is a California State Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Also available is a Virtual Tour for our mobility-restricted guests which will take place on the accessible ground floor (basement) of the Castle.

Guided tours - $15, age 12 and under $12
Virtual tours - $10, 12 and under $5
All tours for under 5 years, free

True, the female candidate is brilliant, beautiful, and has discovered a legendary Lost City, but the decision to let in a woman could shake the very foundation of the British Empire. And how do you make such an important decision without a decent drink? Time Out NY raves, ". . .the most impressive act of mixology belongs to playwright Nell Benjamin, whose comedy recipe goes a little like this: two parts Blackadder, one part Monty Python, a dash of Shaw, shake wildly and garnish with fresh feminist ire." The Explorers Club runs June 24th - July 23rd.

Do your children enjoy the arts? Would you like to introduce your children to participating in art? We offer a safe and friendly place for children who are familiar with the arts or who would like to learn.

Kids feel a sense of emotional satisfaction when they are involved in making art. They have control over the materials they use, making decisions about form, color, etc. Building self-esteem is another result, because students are given opportunities to express what they are thinking and feeling.

We are offering the following workshops for children who have finished Kindergarten and up to grade 8. 

All are Tue, Wed, Thur 10-12 am plus stay for lunch (bring your own) and free draw until 1 pm.

Last guided tour starts 1:00pm
 
Thursday July 21, 2016 and  August18, 2016, self guided tours, 10am to 1pm
 
 

Come to Ione and enjoy an informative historical tour of the magnificent Preston Castle and surrounding grounds.  The strikingly beautiful Romanesque style Preston Castle, on a hill in Ione, was actually the administration building for the Preston School of Industry, the first major attempt in California at rehabilitating, instead of just imprisoning, young offenders.  Opened in 1894, the Preston School of Industry became a leader in the juvenile prison reform movement by giving convicted boys a real chance at life by educating them not only in academics, but in all of the useful trades of the time.  Closed in 1960, when the Preston Youth Authority moved into a new administration building down the hill, the Preston Castle was left to deteriorate due to weather, vandalism, and general neglect.  It now serves as a vacant, but vitally important landmark for Ione, Amador County, and the Motherlode.  It is a California State Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Also available is a Virtual Tour for our mobility-restricted guests which will take place on the accessible ground floor (basement) of the Castle.

Guided tours - $15, age 12 and under $12
Virtual tours - $10, 12 and under $5

Preston Castle Paranormal Night Tours
 
Thanks to our partnership with an experienced Paranormal Research Group, the Preston Castle Foundation is excited to offer opportunities for visitors to spend the night in the Preston Castle. Now you can have the opportunity to spend a night in this truly scary Castle with a small number of other ghost hunters. You will have access to three floors of the Castle throughout the night with only your flashlight and paranormal investigation gear along for comfort.
 
Experiences at the castle have included EVP, humming, whispers, touching, channeling, and seeing and recording orbs and apparitions. There have been no harmful events and no one has been hurt during these overnight events. Numerous Paranormal research groups have investigated this location and report that it is one of the most active sites they have had the pleasure to experience. You will also have the chance to learn paranormal investigation techniques if you wish to do so.
 
Every person venturing through the castle will have a member of theCastle Spirits Paranormal team as your docent  to insure your safety throughout the evening. The cost for the overnight stay is $100.00 per person. Your paypal receipt is your ticket - bring it. You will receive an email with instructions the week before you are scheduled.

We cannot issue refunds for cancellations. We will work with you to reschedule to another date.

The size of the groups will be kept small, usually no more than 15. No person under the age 18 will be allowed to spend the night in the castle.

 

For Private Groups: We have set aside some dates for private groups from 1 to 15 people to reserve the Castle for their very own overnight tour. The same rules apply as for the Public overnight tours, which are repeated above.

To reserve a date, you must pay for at least 5 people ($500) now, and then pay for at least 6 more ($600) by 30 days prior to your date.

If you do not have 11 people in your group, you still need to pay for 11 by 30 days prior, to achieve the $1,100 minimum charge and confirm your date.  You can add more people, up to 15 total ($1,500).

Remaining avaliable dates for private groups are:Saturday, 8/6; Friday, 9/16; Saturday, 9/17; Saturday, 12/3

Fall, winter and spring times are 6:00 pm to 4 am. Summer times are 7:00 pm to 4:00 am.

Friday, July 9, 2016

Los Angeles Rock Americana comes to Downtown Sutter Creek. Feist Wines welcomes the Los Angeles Rock-Americana band, The Americans, to their new tasting room. 

T. Bone Burnett terms the Americans, “genius twenty-first century musicians that are reinventing American heritage music…it sounds even better…”  and Greil Marcus says of the group, "From the first rolling guitar notes, carrying sadness and defiance like dust, this sweeps me up: I want to know everything about where that feeling came from, and where it's going." With credits such as performing on the Late Show with David Letterman and playing the first dance at Reese Witherspoon’s wedding, the Americans are rising stars in original rock and roll with deep roots in traditional American music.

“These guys are awesome,” says Tony Feist, proprietor at Feist Wines, “They bring an energy and vitality at the forefront of the music scene today. It is amazing to host musicians of this caliber.” The Americans are first in a summer concert series at Feist Wines that features Sean Watkins, The Lowest Pair and Smooth Hound Smith who are currently on tour with the Dixie Chicks. www.theamericansmusic.com/

General admission tickets are $20 at the Sutter Creek tasting room or at feistwines.com.

CALICO stands for California Country. CALICO the band is three: Kirsten Proffit, Manda Mosher, and Aubrey Richmond. All are great and dedicated musicians, each with accomplished and celebrated solo careers under way. That is, until Calico brought them together. We're very connected to a community of artists and venues that are flying the Americana flag," said Manda, "deeply influenced by the old scenes from the Palomino days, the Bakersfield Country sound from Buck Owens carried on by Dwight Yoakam, the sound of Gram Parsons' music, Joshua Tree and more."

ICALICO the band is much about sharing: about sharing a musical vision, as well as sharing verses, sharing harmonies, sharing a singular spirit. "Bands that have more than one songwriter can be problematic," said Aubrey, "or just brilliant. And Calico is brilliant. All of our different songs and visions combine to make something great." National Touring Artist of the Year for the Los Angeles Music Awards in 2013. Americana Album of the Year for the 2014 Los Angeles Music Awards.

Last guided tour starts 1:00pm
 
Thursday July 21, 2016 and  August18, 2016, self guided tours, 10am to 1pm
 
 

Come to Ione and enjoy an informative historical tour of the magnificent Preston Castle and surrounding grounds.  The strikingly beautiful Romanesque style Preston Castle, on a hill in Ione, was actually the administration building for the Preston School of Industry, the first major attempt in California at rehabilitating, instead of just imprisoning, young offenders.  Opened in 1894, the Preston School of Industry became a leader in the juvenile prison reform movement by giving convicted boys a real chance at life by educating them not only in academics, but in all of the useful trades of the time.  Closed in 1960, when the Preston Youth Authority moved into a new administration building down the hill, the Preston Castle was left to deteriorate due to weather, vandalism, and general neglect.  It now serves as a vacant, but vitally important landmark for Ione, Amador County, and the Motherlode.  It is a California State Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Also available is a Virtual Tour for our mobility-restricted guests which will take place on the accessible ground floor (basement) of the Castle.

Guided tours - $15, age 12 and under $12

Main Street Theatre Works is pleased to announce its 2016 Summer Season at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre in Jackson, starting with The Explorers Club, by Nell Benjamin, a comedic look at Victorian adventurers who ponder the mysteries of science and nature, while genteelly getting blotto. It’s 1879 and London’s prestigious Explorers Club is in crisis: their acting president wants to admit a woman, and their bartender is the worst. True, the female candidate is brilliant, beautiful, and has discovered a legendary Lost City, but the decision to let in a woman could shake the very foundation of the British Empire. And how do you make such an important decision without a decent drink? Time Out NY raves, ". . .the most impressive act of mixology belongs to playwright Nell Benjamin, whose comedy recipe goes a little like this: two parts Blackadder, one part Monty Python, a dash of Shaw, shake wildly and garnish with fresh feminist ire." The Explorers Club runs June 24th - July 23rd.

Ticket Prices
Adults - $20.00
Seniors: $17.50
Students/Children 18 & under - $12.00

Preston Castle Historical Tours

Preston Castle Historical Tours

Schedule for  public tours
Every Saturday, April 2, 2916 through September 3, 2016
Last guided tour starts 1:00pm
 
Thursday July 21, 2016 and  August18, 2016, self guided tours, 10am to 1pm
 
 

Come to Ione and enjoy an informative historical tour of the magnificent Preston Castle and surrounding grounds.  The strikingly beautiful Romanesque style Preston Castle, on a hill in Ione, was actually the administration building for the Preston School of Industry, the first major attempt in California at rehabilitating, instead of just imprisoning, young offenders.  Opened in 1894, the Preston School of Industry became a leader in the juvenile prison reform movement by giving convicted boys a real chance at life by educating them not only in academics, but in all of the useful trades of the time.  Closed in 1960, when the Preston Youth Authority moved into a new administration building down the hill, the Preston Castle was left to deteriorate due to weather, vandalism, and general neglect.  It now serves as a vacant, but vitally important landmark for Ione, Amador County, and the Motherlode.  It is a California State Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Also available is a Virtual Tour for our mobility-restricted guests which will take place on the accessible ground floor (basement) of the Castle.

Guided tours - $15, age 12 and under $12

Main Street Theatre Works is pleased to announce its 2016 Summer Season at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre in Jackson, starting with The Explorers Club, by Nell Benjamin, a comedic look at Victorian adventurers who ponder the mysteries of science and nature, while genteelly getting blotto. It’s 1879 and London’s prestigious Explorers Club is in crisis: their acting president wants to admit a woman, and their bartender is the worst. True, the female candidate is brilliant, beautiful, and has discovered a legendary Lost City, but the decision to let in a woman could shake the very foundation of the British Empire. And how do you make such an important decision without a decent drink? Time Out NY raves, ". . .the most impressive act of mixology belongs to playwright Nell Benjamin, whose comedy recipe goes a little like this: two parts Blackadder, one part Monty Python, a dash of Shaw, shake wildly and garnish with fresh feminist ire." The Explorers Club runs June 24th - July 23rd.

Pete Seeger: How Can I Keep from Singing?

Pete Seeger: How Can I Keep from Singing?

Sunday, July 24, 2016
2:00 pm.

 

Please join us at Baker Street West. In this one-man performance, Tim Holt portrays Pete Seeger, who tells his life story and sings songs from the various chapters in his life. In this presentation, Pete talks about growing up in a musical family, his travels around the country with Woody Guthrie, singing with the Almanacs and the Weavers, and his involvement in causes that include the labor movement, the civil rights movement, and cleaning up the Hudson River near his home.

And, of course, Pete will encourage audience members to join with him on songs that include "If I Had A Hammer," "We Shall Overcome," "Union Maid," and "This Land."

Tim Holt has been performing music programs in West Coast venues for a number of years. His interest in Pete Seeger and folk music dates back to the Folk Revival of the 1960s when he learned to play the banjo one summer using Pete Seeger's "How To Play The Five-String Banjo" instruction manual.

These boys take the myth making and truth telling that is outlaw country music to a higher level in a good ole honkytonk kinda way. With the release of their new album titled "Where the Honkytonk Belongs", The Freightshakers received a well deserved award for Best Outlaw Country Band at the 2015 Ameripolitan Music Awards in Austin, Texas. Fans continue to show their appreciation and recognition with requests for encores long after the last drink has been poured.

Sharing the stage with a range of artists from Whitey Morgan and the 78’s to legends such as David Allan Coe, Red Simpson, Dale Watson, Billy Joe Shaver, and Asleep at the Wheel, this band is just getting started. Their music celebrates the legacies of Haggard, Jennings, and Paycheck, which you will hear in their well-crafted original songs. the future is bright for The Freightshakers as they continue to build a strong relationship between song and listener.

Last guided tour starts 1:00pm
 
Thursday July 21, 2016 and  August18, 2016, self guided tours, 10am to 1pm
 
 

Come to Ione and enjoy an informative historical tour of the magnificent Preston Castle and surrounding grounds.  The strikingly beautiful Romanesque style Preston Castle, on a hill in Ione, was actually the administration building for the Preston School of Industry, the first major attempt in California at rehabilitating, instead of just imprisoning, young offenders.  Opened in 1894, the Preston School of Industry became a leader in the juvenile prison reform movement by giving convicted boys a real chance at life by educating them not only in academics, but in all of the useful trades of the time.  Closed in 1960, when the Preston Youth Authority moved into a new administration building down the hill, the Preston Castle was left to deteriorate due to weather, vandalism, and general neglect.  It now serves as a vacant, but vitally important landmark for Ione, Amador County, and the Motherlode.  It is a California State Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Also available is a Virtual Tour for our mobility-restricted guests which will take place on the accessible ground floor (basement) of the Castle.

Guided tours - $15, age 12 and under $12
Virtual tours - $10, 12 and under $5
All tours for under 5 years, free
