KONG’S NIGHT OUT to be performed by Main Street Theater Works this summer
Main Street Theater Works will be back this summer at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheater in Jackson for “The Theater Under the Stars”. MSTW kicks off its 18th summer season at the Amphitheater with the hilarious Kong’s Night Out, written by Jack Neary and directed by Allen Pontes. The show takes place on Friday and Saturday June 18 – July 17.
This is the story of what happened in the hotel room next to the hotel room where Ann (played by Fay Wray in the 1933 film) was taken on Manhattan night by King. Kong. As low-end Broadway producer Myron Siegel (Scott Adams) prepares to open his latest production, Foxy Felicia, he finds out his rival Carl Denham (Vincent Keene) will be opening straight across the street. , a very big show, with a very big monkey! As the story unfolds, doors open and close, along with mistaken identities, face pies, deception, deviousness, and even a few romances. It’s a comedic take on a classic story, as seen in the 1933 film. The show also stars Julie Anchor, Paul Fearn, Fallon Jones, Jason Kaye, Brandon Rapoza, Tara Reynolds, and Kaitlin Richards.
Main Street Theater Works is a professional theater company that performs in the heart of Amador County. Now entering its 27th season, MSTW continues to dedicate itself to bringing together professional and community theater artists to produce classic and contemporary pieces, seeking a balance that stimulates both artists and audiences.
The setting of the amphitheater is truly spectacular. Located on the Kennedy Mine property, patrons walk past an old tail wheel (used when the mine was in operation), over an old bridge, to a grass-covered terraced bowl surrounded by majestic oak trees. There, the stage is set for picnicking and enjoying professional quality productions. You are truly sitting on a gold mine, enjoying the theater under the stars.
Because we are still not out of the ‘Covid Woods’, MSTW will be limiting seating, meaning all tickets must be purchased in advance, for a specific show, on our website (MSTW.ORG) . We will require masks to be worn when checking in and will move around the amphitheater, but they can be removed once seated. And we ask customers to leave two ice chests between your capsule and that of your neighbor.
The performances are on Friday and Saturday evenings, with doors opening at 6.30 a.m. for picnics, show from 8 a.m. Guests are encouraged to come early with picnics, chairs, and jackets. The Kennedy Mine Amphitheater is located at 1127 N. Main Street in Jackson.
