"Alone Together": Main Street Theatre Works Presents 2nd Summer Show

JACKSON, CA - This year, Main Street Theatre Works (MSTW) celebrates 25 years of producing theatre in Amador County. And this is their 16th year at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre in Jackson. They kicked off their 2019 Summer Season with the very funny Leading Ladies, and now present their second summer show, Alone Together, directed by Susan McCandless.

Alone Together was written in 1983 by Lawrence Roman who, 20 years prior wrote the comedy hit, Under the Yum Yum Tree, which became a successful film staring Jack Lemmon. It is a heartfelt comedy for those parents who understand what it means to have "boomerang kids."

After 30 years of child rearing, George (Allen Pontes) & Helene Butler (Julie Anchor) are practically drooling with anticipation as their youngest son, Keith (Conner Ohlrich), drives off to start college. But dreams of carefree days and passion-filled nights are quickly dashed when eldest son Michael (Jason Kaye), followed by middle sibling Elliott (Eric Fawcett), take up residence in the bedrooms of their youth. Now mom and dad have to figure out how to push the birdies back out of the nest. Also in the cast is Rian Lombardo as the surprise guest, Janie.

Alone Together runs August 9th – September 7th.

Main Street Theatre Works is a professional, non-AEA theatre company, performing in the heart of Amador County. Now entering its 25th season, MSTW continues to be dedicated to bringing artists together to produce plays that stimulate both artists and audiences.

The stage is set for the 16th year at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre in Jackson, CA. Located on the Kennedy Gold Mine property, patrons walk past an old tailing wheel (used when the mine was in operation), across a bridge, onto a grass-covered, terraced bowl. There the stage is set for picnicking and quality theatre under the stars. You are truly sitting on a gold mine.

Performances are Friday and Saturday nights, with gates opening at 6:30, show starting at 8:00. Patrons are encouraged to come early with picnics, chairs and jackets. Only service animals allowed. The Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre is located at 1127 N. Main Street in Jackson.
