Murphys Creek Theatre Company: New Season Kicks Off This Month!


Murphys Creek Theatre

One of the many wonderful aspects of Murphys is its love and support of the arts. There’s always a concert event, theatrical production or art show happening at any given moment. One of Murphys performing arts fixtures is the Murphys Creek Theatre company — a small company with professional standards, artistry, integrity and passion.

The group began staging productions at the Cornelia B. Stevenot Memorial Amphitheatre at Albeno Munari Vineyard and Winery (formerly Stevenot) in 1994 and found themselves quickly gaining popularity and momentum with each theatrical offering. The summer series, “Theatre Under the Stars” has amassed much critical acclaim and is now a summertime tradition for the folks of Murphys and Calaveras County.

Realizing their potential, Murphys Creek Theatre soon took up residence in a second, additional theatre, The Black Bart Playhouse, offering them the opportunity to continue performing year-round.

What’s truly remarkable is the theatre company’s effort to nurture and educate Calaveras area’s theatrically-inclined youth. Offering afternoon arts programs in the fall, with classes for voice and acting, as well as the summertime acting conservatory, “Mirror Project”, MCT’s educational programs are exciting, challenging and rewarding, and are a shining example of Murphys endeavors to support the arts in all its forms.

Their 2012 season kicks off this month and is a fascinating mix of old and new, from Shakespeare and Moliere to contemporary drama. Take a look a what they’ve got in store for the season.
