Show time is 7:00 pm on Friday, May 21 and Saturday, May 22, 2010 at the Yuba Theatre, 212 Main St, Downieville. See map.

Set in a mining camp in Gold Rush era California, Paint Your Wagon is the story of Ben Rumson, a grizzled prospector, whose daughter Jennifer discovers gold in their mining camp. When word of the strike spreads, the camp’s population grows enormously and the new town of Rumson is formed. But, when the gold runs out, the town is deserted as quickly as it filled up and Ben is left with nothing but his hopes and dreams.

  • Californians will once again have the opportunity to support the California Arts Council and its arts programs for children through their state individual tax refund. Sept. 2013, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed Senate Bill 571 (Senator Carol Liu, La Canada Flintridge), returning the arts to the voluntary contribution portion of California tax return forms through the new "Keep Arts in Schools Fund." Donations are tax deductible and support Arts Council programs throughout the state.
