All Day MCT Opens 2018 with Joseph Kesselring’s Arsenic and Old Lace. Through March 25th
Murphys, CA...Murphys Creek Theatre launches its new vibrant season with the deep dark comedy classic Arsenic and Old Lace, opening March 2nd and runs till the 25th. The play runs Fridays and Saturdays at 7pm, Sundays at 2pm. Written by Joseph Kesselring the play originated on Broadway in 1941, ran for four years, and a successful film adaptation produced a cult following. A radio version, and hundreds of stage revivals followed. The 1940s setting is in the Brooklyn home of the Brewsters; Mortimer, the sanest of the eccentric household, tries to keep the city, and his girlfriend Elaine Harper, safe from the secrets of his family.


Guest Director Jon Dambacher, who in 2015 directed God of Carnage for MCT, writes of this new Lace production, "Most people think they already know this play. The challenge becomes rejecting and avoiding the clichés. What's less obvious are the many alternating layers in it. It's funny, bizarre, a little tragic, but at its core, it's a story that asks, in Love: What is a deal-breaker? Audiences, we believe, are in for a savory treat."

Audiences are definitely in for a treat with this ensemble cast of seasoned MCT veterans and newcomers. Rajah Foerstner, Ayla Buck, and Shari Schweigler are all making their first appearances in Murphys as Mortimer Brewster, Elaine Harper and Abby Brewster. Joining them are Sherry Dumas as Martha Brewster, Sid Marsh as Jonathan Brewster, Denny Bowen as “Teddy” Brewster, Terry Richardson as Dr. Einstein, with Holly Johnston, Stephen Daly and John Baker rounding out the talent.

The Board of Directors hosts an Opening Night reception on March 2, 2018 – giving audience members a chance to share refreshments and perhaps some wine with the cast and crew.

The theatre is located at 580 S Algiers Road Murphys CA 95251 in the Black Bart Playhouse. Ticket prices are $24 general admission, $22 for students and seniors 55+, and $12 for children 12 and under.

Advance tickets are strongly encouraged – visit www.murphyscreektheatre.org or call 209-728-8422

The box office opens at 6 pm on Fridays and Saturdays with the play starting promptly at 7, and at 12:30 on Sundays, with the show starting at 2.


This event repeats weekly every Friday Saturday until 03/25/2018

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Old Timers Museum Walking Tours Are Every Saturday at 10am.
Murphys, CA...Each Saturday morning the Old Timers Museum in Murphys offers a historical walking tour of Murphys. No reservation necessary. Meet at the Museum, 470 Main St, Murphys, across from the Hotel 10 am. Walk is 1-1/12 hours.


A stroll down tree-lined Main Street transports visitors back to the mid-1800s with buildings bearing thick stone walls, iron shutters and pastoral gardens with white picket fences. Once you experience the charm and hospitality of Murphys, the historic “Queen of the Sierra”, you’ll want to come back again and again!

Rich in Gold Rush History, Murphys today is a vibrant, thriving community of over 2,000 residents. Many of the surrounding hillsides are rich with the fine wine grapes grown in our area. Murphys offers wineries, art galleries, live theater, eclectic shops, fine restaurants, charming hotels and B&B’s as well as a multitude of outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities.

Murphys’ colorful past came alive in 1848 when John and Daniel Murphy established a trading post and gold mining operation in the area that is now their namesake. True entrepreneurs with the luck of the Irish, they were a part of the very first immigrant party – the Stephens-Townsend-Murphy families – to successfully bring wagons over the Sierra in 1844, paving the way for westward migration. John and Daniel’s cries of “Gold!” were among the first heard in California. It is reported that the brothers took two million dollars in gold ore from the Murphys Diggins in one year’s time, making them millionaires before the age of 25. The sizzling Gold Rush camp of Murphys also played host to President Grant, Mark Twain and Black Bart. And in some circles, to an even more famous chap – a young, inquisitive lad who literally changed the scientific world, Dr. Albert Michelson.

Our friendly residents invite you to revisit the past while exploring the “new” upscale Murphys. Guided walking tours of the town’s many historic buildings including the home of Albert Michelson, the first American Nobel Prize winner, are conducted every Saturday at 10:00 a.m., starting in front of the Old Timers Museum on Main Street.

12:00 PM - 04:00 PM Murphys Old Timers Museum Will Display "Cattle in the Sierras " Through April
Murphys, CA...Funded by a California Stories grant from California Humanities, the Murphys Old Timers Museum, has produced an exhibit on the long-established practice of transhumance in the California Foothills and Sierra Nevada. Since gold was discovered in California in the winter of 1848, cattle have roamed the foothills in winter and spring, summered in the rich grasslands of the Sierra Nevada, and returned to their lowland homes in the fall. This annual pattern (transhumance), with established ranches and farms in the lower elevations and summer camps and pasturages in the high mountain meadows, is rapidly disappearing. Threatened with the diminishing price of beef to producers, difficulties in transporting livestock to their summer ranges, and environmental regulations, this 160-year old California tradition may disappear in the near future. Proponents of grazing argue that this will result in loss of mountain meadows and ponds as well as lowland ranches with their grass ranges to residential sprawl. Some environmental and hiking groups contend that livestock grazing in the mountains has led to degradation of streams and native ecosystems. The exhibit, and a video, recount the stories of historic cattle ranching in the California foothills and its battle to stay alive in the face of current environmental and economic challenges, also addressing the effects of its continued operation on mountain ecosystems. Utilizing historical and current photographs and the installation of a 1911 high country cow camp, this exhibit argues that by working together to solve grazing issues, ranchers, the Forest Service, scientists, environmental groups, and the public can resolve their differences, resulting in a win-win for all. A 15-minute video, presenting both sides of the issue and a hope for reconciliation, is forthcoming.




The exhibit will be on display at the Murphys Old Timers Museum, 470 Main Street, Murphys Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays 12 pm to 4 pm through April 29, 2018. Call for more info 728-1160.
