Murphys Creek Theatre

MCT_20yearsblackMurphys Creek Theatre is a small, classically focused theatre company located in the charming and historic goldrush-era town of Murphys, in Calaveras County, California. Since its founding in 1994, MCT’s productions have grown steadily in popularity and critical acclaim, and “Theatre Under The Stars” became a favorite summer tradition for both residents and visitors alike.

This year, the Murphys Creek Theatre is thrilled to partner with Brice Station Winery to present the summer “Theatre Under The Stars” festival. Now celebrating it’s 20th year anniversary, Murphys Creek Theatre will experience a renaissance revival of beloved theatre classics that inspired it’s inception.

With the continued year-round venue at the Black Bart Playhouse in Downtown Murphys (580 S. Algiers), everyone can enjoy great live theatre in Calaveras County year round!

Alright you rowdy bunch of time preparation for tonight's show, here's some proper etiquette to remember:

• The throwing of rice, toilet paper, water, etc. is part of the fun. It is not meant to harm people, ruin someone's make-up or costume, or cause damage to the theater.

• Never make fun of someone for "dressing up" - especially if their costume or make-up is not exact. The point is that their heart is in it and this might discourage them or others from ever returning in costume and that's what this cult's all about, isn't it?

• If you portray a certain character in your theater or its performing group, don't get angry or jealous if someone else comes dressed as that character. Remember that the movie and its characters are not your exclusive property. When you think about it, any resentment is hypocritical to your own "dressing up".

• Respect the wishes of the theater and its management. Vandalism and the breaking of rules might not only lead to your ejection, but to the closing of the film. This would only be spoiling it for everyone.

• If visitors from other theaters or areas comes to visit, don't try to "shout them down". Respect the fact that they might yell different "lines". Why, you might even find some new ones more preferable to your own.

• Calling Brad an "asshole" and "neck lines" to the criminologist are funny in their proper place, but should not be yelled every time you see these characters' faces. It does get boring and monotonous
