What the weather wrought

A Flea in Her Ear

Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre

1105 N. Main St.
Jackson, CA 95642

While it looks like our rainy spring has finally ended, it’s already played havoc with the earliest of the outdoor theater openings: Main Street Theatre Works has delayed the opening of its first show of the season. A Flea in Her Ear was scheduled to kick off MSTW’s outdoor season in the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre this weekend, but it has been pushed back a week until June 24, to allow the rain-soaked venue to dry out a little—and to finish the construction of a complicated set. According to Ken Stefferud, the show’s technical director, the comedy includes several doors and a revolving bed, and recent rains just didn’t allow enough time for the work to be completed. Expect to catch the door-slamming, mistaken-identity, slapstick comedy a week later than originally planned—and, as always, plan a picnic. Include mosquito repellent, lawn chairs and jackets or blankets for the night chill. Gates at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre in Jackson open at 6:30 p.m. for an 8 p.m. show on Fridays and Saturdays, June 24 through July 23.
