Celebrate ITs 10th Anniversary December 26

Come celebrate ITs 10th Anniversary on Sunday, December 26 at 5:00 p.m. Two shows of Grease are scheduled that day--a cast reunion and sponsor event at 2:00 p.m. and the closing show at 8:00 p.m. Both shows are open to all! Adults $17, Seniors $14, and Children $10. Tickets in the first three rows are $1 more. Tickets are also available for two shows prior to Christmas on Wednesday, December 22 and Thursday, December 23 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are available online at, by phone 530-642-0404, or at the door.

Founders, Peter and Linda Wolfe and Lanny and Tish Langston, started with the rock and roll musical, Grease ten years ago. IT had the good fortune of not only selling out all performances, but doing so before the show opened! They now have over 30 shows to their credit. IT has produced comedies, dramas, farces, and musicals along with the concerts, workshops, and summer theater camps. Many of our young actors have gone on to college majoring in the performing arts and are now working as professional actors, singers, costumers, and make up artists.

Come see what local live, community theater is all about on December 26!

Quilters Wagon Completed

The covered wagon for Quilters has been completed, built from a 10-foot Studebaker antique frame by Ron Scofield in Fiddletown. Recently Chrissie Addison, director of Quilters and Rick Gaylord, Assistant Director, took a ride to Fiddletown to visit the wagon to be delivered in January for use on the round stage on which Quilters will be performed at IT.

Addison notes, “This wagon is a ‘honey”’ and completes my vision for doing Quilters in arena style at IT. This is the first time we’ve done theater-in-the-round in this county and we’re all excited. Meeting Mr. Scofield and seeing his ranch where he restores and builds wagons of all types, is like a piece of living western history!”

Addison expects various scenes to incorporate action in and around the wagon. The lip of the wagon is nearly three feet high, so Virgil Toothaker, master carpenter, will be constructing steps to approach the wagon for access. In excess of 800 pounds, special ramps will be used to get it up on stage – and off again when the show closes.

Mr. Scofield spent years as a working cowboy and was once on a 6-month wagon train himself from California to the east coast and tells rich stories about surviving that experience. He says, “The women were much tougher than the men! The men, they’d complain about the cold and this or that. The women just got the job done and could handle the hardships better than the men.”
