Considered one of the nation’s premiere environmental and adventure film festival’s, this year’s films combine stellar film making, beautiful cinematography and first-rate storytelling to inform, inspire and ignite solutions and possibilities to restore the earth and human communities while creating a positive future for the next generation.  Festival-goers can expect to see Award winning films about nature, community activism, adventure, conservation, water, energy and climate change, wildlife, environmental justice, agriculture, Native American and indigenous cultures.

This year’s selections will not only take audiences to some of the most remote and beautiful places on the planet, but introduce them to the magnificent animals that inhabit these places and the courageous individuals who are working to protect and preserve both for future generations.  The films instill a deep appreciation and a sense of wonder for the natural world that surrounds and supports us.

Reader’s Theater

BUY TICKETS

 

The Miners Foundry will present Tim O’Connor’s Reader’s Theater on January 5, 2020.  Reader’s Theater has been called Story Time for Grown Ups, or Theatre of the Mind, and gained popularity during World War II when large stage plays were too expensive to produce.  Using minimal props, the actor and your imagination illustrate the story.  Directed by Gaylie Bell-Stewart, the show will offer the Best American Short Stories from the 1940s, featuring works by E.B White, John Cheever, William Maxwell, V.S. Pritchett and Brendan Gill read by: Donna Brown Raibley, David Lynn, Sandra Rockman, Bruce Kelly and Gaylie Bell-Stewart.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m. and the show begins at 4:00 p.m.  Tickets are $10 and are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry, and in person at Briar Patch C0-Op.  Ticketing fees do not apply for purchases made through the Miners Foundry Box Office.

A no-host bar will be open before and during the performance selling non-alcoholic and adult beverages as well refreshments.

The Moors

 

Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry will present The Moors on Wednesday, January 22 at 7:30pm.  Written by Jen Silverman and directed by Laura LeBleu, The Moors is the next installment of Theater By the Book, a series of informal play readings for the community.

Two sisters (and a melancholy mastiff) live in a ruinous old house on the bleak and fog-enshrouded English moors, dreaming of love and power. When a hapless governess (and a crash-prone moor-hen) arrive out of nowhere, lies are unmasked, loyalties shift, and all are set on a strange and dangerous path until finally – someone reaches the breaking point! ​A mysterious, menacing, and savagely funny mash-up – as though the Brönte Sisters had been dropped into a comedic production of a play by Samuel Beckett.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m. 

Admission is free with a $10 suggested donation
