Musical
"CHICAGO" presented by Sierra Stages
This summer, Sierra Stages brings the excitement of the hit musical “CHICAGO” to Nevada City with an all-local Nevada County production playing from July 13 through August 5 at the historic Nevada Theatre. Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, “CHICAGO” tells the story of Roxie Hart, a chorus girl who murders her lover. Desperate to avoid a conviction, Roxie dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer, Billy Flynn, to transform her crime into a barrage of sensational headlines. Performances of “CHICAGO” are Thursdays at 7 PM, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, and Sundays at 2 PM. General Admission tickets for the first two “preview” performances on Thursday July 13 and Friday July 14 are $20. Thereafter General Admission tickets are $28. Reserved Seating is also available (in advance) for all performances for $38 and is a great way to provide additional financial support for Sierra Stages. $15 Student Rush (subject to availability) may be purchased at the box office ½ hour prior to each performance (age 25 and under with valid student ID). For tickets and information, visit www.SierraStages.org or call Sierra Stages at 530.346.3210.

Family/Child
122nd Annual Miners Picnic
This yearly event dates back to 1895. Early miners picnics helped raise money for miners' widows and orphans. Today, it's a chance to celebrate the area’s gold-grit-and-glory past, and everyone's invited, including well-behaved dogs on leashes. One of the highlights will be a mine-rescue re-enactment at high noon in the Mineyard, where vintage rescue vehicles race to save the injured miners. Bring your lunch, blankets and chairs, and picnic on the grounds. There will be plenty of delicious food and drinks for sale outside the clubhouse, including Cornish pasties and ice cream. There's also an old-fashioned cakewalk with loads of sweet treats, plus lively entertainment on the special stage. The Mineyard will be buzzing with activity, especially in the busy Blacksmith Shop. Visitors will receive a warm welcome at Empire Cottage by living history docents portraying colorful characters who shaped our history.

Art Show
16th Annual California Landscape Exhibition
California’s natural beauty and diverse landscape has been giving artists a source of inspiration in the genre of landscape painting since Albert Bierstadt and his 19th-century depictions of Yosemite. His practice of capturing the exceptional, ethereal light of California continues in contemporary landscapes, as artists today explore a new sublimity present in the 21st century. Featuring scenes of fertile valleys, sparkling beaches, dense forests and seemingly boundless deserts, Californian landscapes remain the root of poetic allure for artists today. Contemporary artists such as Pat Mahony, Marti Walker, Philippe Gandiol, Julie Smiley and Boyd Gavin have taken the multifaceted nature of California and brought new ways of viewing landscapes to the John Natsoulas Gallery. The exhibition displays original representations of scenic vistas and cityscapes and offers visitors the opportunity to view the familiar in new ways. A reception will be held July 22 at 7pm.
