12/19/2019 - Studio 4 Dance Theater presents The Nutcracker
Studio 4 Dance Theater presents Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker,” the classic holiday tale of Clara’s dreamlike adventures with her Nutcracker Prince in the Candy Kingdom.

This year’s production brings on a new cast, stunning costumes, high tech props and spectacular special effects. Artistic Director Tammie Lee introduces the new “Angels” who open Act II this year. The “Party Scene”, bright and fun, opens the production set in the Stahlbaum home in Germany where Clara and her brother Fritz anxiously await the excitement of this holiday tradition.

Briar Gibson will portray Clara, with Rocky Harwood as her Nutcracker Prince. Iris Stafford will dance the role of the Mouse Queen, Taylor Wilson will be the Snow Queen, and Madison Gonzales will be the Dew Drop Fairy. Jillian Buteau will be the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier will be Judah Harwood, and Tim Smith will return as Godfather Drosselmeyer.

This year marks the 11th annual Studio 4 Dance Theater production of
“The Nutcracker” at Bret Harte Theater. The full-length, professional-quality ballet has become the highlight of the local holiday season, with return audiences and sold-out performances every year.

Tickets: Thursday: Advance purchase- $15/adult; $12/youth ages 13-17; $9/children 12 and under. At the door - $18/adult; $15/youth ages 13-17; $12/children 12 and under.

01/12/2020 - Cantamos Opens Ovations Winter Concert Season
Angels Camp, CA...The first concert of the Ovations winter concert season at the Bret Hart Performing Arts Center will be the band Cantamos, a popular local band that refuses to be put in a genre box with their mix of big band, rock, rhythm and blues, folk, pop, and even classical music. “We’re so hard to describe,” said Macfarlane. “We have an eclectic mix of our favorite songs. In the past we’ve moved from arias to Latin favorites, to contemporary pop songs.” Indeed, Michela leads the band seamlessly across the world music landscape with a cheerful whirlwind of songs like the Brazilian bosso nova hit “Corcovado” and the German/Yiddish big band romp “Bei Mire Bist Du Shön,” as well as rollicking Aretha Franklin covers and the novelty song “Mambo Italiano.”



Cantamos isn’t restricted to English. Macfarlane is a musical polyglot; their concerts can feel like a world tour. “My favorite thing is to sing in a bunch of different languages. Italian, French Spanish, Portuguese,” she said. Chestnut kitschy pop songs like “These Boots are Made for Walking” shine when Macfarlane sings them in French. And Cantamos covers a variety of unusual material, like their rendition of Pink Martini’s “Je ne Veux Pas Travailler (Sympatique).”

The eight piece group is blessed with a line up of talent to back Macfarlane: Fred Treece on guitars and vocals, Tonja Peterson on vocals and percussion, Ray Price on drums and percussion, and Ron Schaner on bass and vocals mix it up with the horn section—Ras Beeken Dan on sax, flute, and clarinet, Gunther Hsue on trumpet (he also plays keyboard), and Matt Albright on Trombone.

“It can be tricky to play with a horn section,” Macfarlane admitted. “Especially with my vocal range, which is pretty high. A lot of times the vocals can get lost. That’s been one of the challenges.” But she said that the horns, led by Beeken, make it work. “It’s so awesome to have that full section that a horn section brings. There are so many possibilities.”

Macfarlane said that each musician contributes to the band’s material by bringing in their favorite pieces. “Each of our songs has a special meaning to at least someone in our group, for example Ray brought in Corcovado, Ron brought in Sara Bareilles’ “Love Song” and Gunther brought in Sting’s “La Belle Dame Sans Regrets.” Whatever memory or desire they have connected to it we then make it our own collective effort and polish it into a rendition that speaks to all of us.”

“We are presenting our usual eclectic repertoire mix,” Macfarlane said, “but we’re breathing new life into it. Gunther Hsue and I will do a Mozart aria from Le Nozze di Figaro, new to our show. Tonja, Fred, and I will also be doing a couple new songs with gorgeous harmonies, pieces that you just don’t hear every day.”

“I think one of the most important things we are doing for this show is coming up with fresh arrangements for our songs that harness the talent of all of us on stage in such a way that features as many moments of brilliance as possible.”

The Calaveras County Arts Council presents Cantamos
Sunday, January 12
3 to 5 p.m.
Tickets: $25 adults/$10 under 18. Available online at www.calaverasarts.org, or call 209/753-0127 Monday through Thursday.

01/02/2020 - Tickets Still Available for John McCutcheon and Red Tail Ring Concert in Angels Camp on Thursday, Ja
Angels Camp, CA...Tickets are still available for the Thursday, January 9, 2020, Angels Camp performance by multiple Grammy Award-nominated musician, storyteller and author John McCutcheon and his special guests, Red Tail Ring. The performance will be held at the Dr. Elliott A. Smart Performing Arts Center at Bret Harte Union High School on Highway 49 beginning at 7:00 p.m.



Whether in print, on record, or on stage, people connect with John McCutcheon’s versatility, charm, wit and pure talent. “Foothill Conservancy introduced John to this area in 1992, and we’re looking forward to hosting him for the first time in Angels Camp,” said Foothill Conservancy Executive Director Sherry Pease. “Local audiences really enjoy his shows.”

A Wisconsin native and Georgia resident, McCutcheon spent years immersing himself in the traditional music of the southern Appalachian Mountains. He is one of the country’s most respected and loved folksingers and a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, from the banjo to the hammer dulcimer. His songwriting has been hailed by critics and singers around the globe. McCutcheon’s 40 recordings have garnered every imaginable honor, and his commitment to grassroots organizing has put him on the front lines of many important issues, from supporting

Wisconsin teachers to opposing environmentally destructive Alaskan mining proposals.
McCutcheon is best known for his captivating live performances. As the late Pete Seeger said, “John McCutcheon is not only one of the best musicians in the USA, but also a great singer, songwriter, and song leader.” Johnny Cash called him, “The most impressive instrumentalist I’ve ever heard.” Describing his stories, the Washington Post said, “He has an uncanny ability to breathe new life into the familiar. His storytelling has the richness of fine literature.”
People of every generation and background feel at home when John McCutcheon takes the stage, with what critics describe as “little feats of magic,” “breathtaking in their ease and grace...,” and “like a conversation with an illuminating old friend.” His performances feature original and traditional songs with the profound mark of place, family, and strength, along with stories told in a style that's been compared to Will Rogers and Garrison Keillor.
Red Tail Ring is the duo of Laurel Premo and Michael Beauchamp. They create lush, intricate arrangements of original folk music and traditional ballads with banjo, fiddle, guitar, and close harmonies. American Roots UK called them, “The very best of the 21st century’s minimalist and highly original folk music . . . a peerless duo.”

Tickets to the show are $30 in advance and $35 the day of the show, $15 in advance for children 12 and under, $20 day of the show. Tickets are on sale at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4437325, at the Manzanita Arts Emporium in Angels Camp, and at the Foothill Conservancy’s Jackson office at 35 Court Street, Suite 1 (call first, 209-223-3508). The concert is a 30th anniversary benefit for the Foothill Conservancy.

For more information, call Carolyn at 209-223-3508 or e-mail carolyn@foothillconservancy.org. end

With our shows being sold out every year it continues to be the beloved Christmas production children and adults alike look forward to attending.

Studio 4 Dance Theater was a dream of Artistic Director Tammie Lee that came to fruition in 2010. After performing the first Petite Version of The Nutcracker in 2008 the company was formed, but it was not until 2010 that it became established as a non-profit dance company. Studio 4 Dance Theater is the resident company of Studio 4 School of Dance.

Studio 4 Dance Theater produces a Spring Showcase which features works choreographed by Mrs. Lee that have included Alice’s Adventures, Peter and the Wolf, Sleeping Beauty’s Wedding, Pictures at an Exhibition, Carnival of Animals and many more.

Studio 4 Dance Theater also produces a student showcase. This production highlights performances in jazz, tap, ballet, contemporary and hip hop. Many of our junior and senior dancers choreograph for this showcase and we provide our senior dancers with the opportunity to help in directing, graphic design for posters and programs, budgeting and much more.

Studio 4 Dance Theater and Studio 4 School of Dance are involved with our community, performing in Murphy’s Irish Days Parade, Children’s Frog Jump Parade, Miss Calaveras Pageant, Angels Camp Christmas Parade, Murphy’s Open House & Christmas Parade and many other functions throughout the year.

Our commitment to our community also includes scholarships.

The Studio 4 Dance Theater Scholarship is awarded to one senior at the Bret Harte Scholarship Night and at the Miss Calaveras Pageant. We also hold auditions the second week of May for dancers and artists in our community. We give up to four scholarships at this audition for any serious artists that would like to attend a summer intensive.

Our mission at Studio 4 Dance Theater:
To educate children and adults in the performing arts through public performance in all genres of dance and performance art and to carry on other educational activities associated with this mission.

Our vision at Studio 4 Dance Theater:
To have a space where children and adults can come and create, express themselves through dance, imagine and fulfill dreams, build self-esteem and develop meaningful friendships that will last a lifetime.
