All Day Prescribed Burn Planned on Save the Redwoods League Property
Arnold, CA...Save the Redwoods League in cooperation with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) and California State Parks are planning to begin a prescribed burn on or around Friday, June 28, 2019 on its property adjacent to Calaveras Big Trees State Park on the northeast side. The goal is to complete the 20-acre Oak Leaf Spring unit (see yellow polygon on the map below). Ignition is expected to be completed in one day. The 20 acres were previously thinned, reducing the fuel loading and allowing for a safer and more controllable broadcast burn. Much of this work was funded through a Proposition 1 grant from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy and a Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund grant from CAL FIRE, both agencies of the State of California.


This burn is part of Save the Redwoods League’s stewardship program for vegetation management, hazardous fuel load reduction, and wildlife habitat improvement. Prescribed burns enhance the health of the forest by removing diseased materials, restoring essential nutrients to the soil, and reducing the chance of a catastrophic wildfire. Through forest thinning and reduction of fire fuels, an ecologically healthy forest system can be maintained.
An additional benefit of this prescribed burn includes buffer protection for the State Parks’ South Grove of giant sequoias.

Prescribed burns produce significantly less smoke than wildfires. To minimize the smoke impacts on surrounding communities, burns are planned and coordinated with CAL FIRE and the Tuolumne County Air District. All burning depends on weather and air quality conditions that are favorable for smoke dispersal. If the conditions, such as weather or vegetation are not conducive for burning, the burns will be rescheduled.

Communities near Calaveras Big Trees State Park, including Dorrington, Big Trees Village, White Pines, Blue Lake Spring, and Arnold, may experience smoke from the burning operations. Save the Redwoods League is working with the Tuolumne County Air Pollution Control Districts to limit impacts to smoke sensitive areas.
Both Highway 4 and the Walter W. Smith Parkway will remain open but may experience delays due to smoke and other hazards. Please obey all warning signs.

Questions or comments about the projects or about the stewardship program should be directed to Anthony Castanos at (415) 362-2352.

07:00 PM "Moon Over Buffalo" Continues on at Murphys Creek Theatre
Murphys, CA...“The Show Must Go On!” In Murphys Creek Theatre’s 2019 summer production. In Ken Ludwig’s MOON OVER BUFFALO, all character stop at nothing to live up to that infamous phrase. The play follows George and Charlotte Hay, fading stage and film stars of the 1950s. At the moment, they're playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York… with only five actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George's dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra, Mr. Hollywood himself, is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie Twilight of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George, Charlotte and their devoted company manager Paul Singer, everything that could go wrong does go wrong. The chaos is aided by a visit from their daughter, Roz, her clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they're actually performing. Adding more fuel to the comedic fire is Charlotte’s deaf, stage manager Mother who despises George with every fiber of her being.



Ken Ludwig is a two-time Olivier Award-winning playwright who has written over 26 plays and musicals, including 6 shows on Broadway and 7 in London's West End. His first Broadway play, Lend Me A Tenor, won two Tony Awards and was called "one of the classic comedies of the 20th century" by The Washington Post. His other awards include the Helen Hayes Award, the 2017 Samuel French Award for Sustained Excellence in the American Theatre, the Edgar Award for Best Mystery of the Year, and the Edwin Forrest Award for Contributions to the American Theater. His book How To Teach Your Children Shakespeare, published by Penguin/Random House, won the Falstaff Award for Best Shakespeare Book of the Year, and his essays are published by the Yale Review. Ken's best known works include Crazy For You (5 years on Broadway, Tony and Olivier Awards for Best Musical), Lend Me A Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo, The Game's Afoot, Baskerville, Sherwood, A Fox on the Fairway, and a stage version of Murder on the Orient Express, written expressly at the request of the Agatha Christie Estate. His work has been performed in over 30 countries in more than 20 languages, and is produced somewhere in the United States and abroad every night of the year.

The show is directed by MCT Artistic Director, Robbie Allen. He last directed MCT’s 2018 production of The Mousetrap, and was last seen onstage this year in The Whipping Man and Barefoot in the Park.

“I absolutely love this play,” says Allen, “It is hilarious from start to finish and the characters are incredibly rich and fun. The play relies heavily on situational and farcical comedy, while still delivering very human and relatable character arcs. The writing is phenomenal and makes my job easy.” He also adds, “The cast we’ve assembled is incredible and such a joy to work with.”

Moon Over Buffalo stars: Sid Marsh as George Hay, Elaine Saculla as Charlotte Hay, Todd Thomas as Paul Singer, Alyson Wren as Roz Hay, Sharon Perras as Ethel, Michael Crich as Richard, Charlie Cites as Eileen and Colten Minehart as Howard.

The play runs JUNE 21st – JULY 14th . Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights at 7pm and Sundays at 2pm. Murphys Creek Theatre is located at
580 S. Algiers St. Murphys CA
