All Day Our Sunday Edition with Local Features, Local Specials & More Every Sunday All Day Long!
Arnold, CA...Our goal is to bring back the feel of the old Sunday Paper. It was a day for features, profiles and most importantly the Rotogravure section with all the color ads that had kids begging mom & dad for the latest toys, Dad checking out the new hardware and automotive specials and Moms everywhere looking for the best for their families. So it was a day to let the hard news and crime stories wait till Monday if they could and focus on fun, family and of course Shopping. So join us for our Big, New, Sunday Edition where we will feature everything Fun, New, & most importantly On Sale at our local stores and businesses!!!

If you own or run a local business in Calaveras, Amador, Alpine & Tuolumne Counties give us a call at 209.768.3929 or email us at for great Sunday Special ad rates. During the week ads and promotions compete with the news, on Sundays the ads and features are the news!! only accepts advertising from locally owned or core businesses in our local area. Shop Local!!
07:00 PM Studio 4 Dance Theater Presents “The Holiday Showcase 2023” at the Bret Harte Theater
Angels Camp, CA...A Festive Array of Jazz, Hip Hop, and Contemporary Dances, Including Beloved Traditional Nutcracker Pieces December 14-16th. Studio 4 School of Dance students will delight the community with their talent and various dance genres at the Holiday Showcase 2023. Dance styles at this year’s production will include jazz, contemporary, hip hop and ballet. Studio 4 School of Dance (S4SD) and Studio 4 Dance Theater (S4DT) have a long history in Calaveras County, offering the community a glorious and traditional holiday production. In 2019, S4DT presented their 11th Annual “The Nutcracker”. This December, the community will once again be able to enjoy select Nutcracker pieces at the Holiday Showcase 2023.

Artistic Director Tammie Lee has dedicated her life to providing dance instruction to Calaveras County dancers. Tammie Lee, along with Sarah Long, dance instructor and choreographer, are pleased to showcase dancers in the Holiday Showcase 2023. S4DT dancers work very hard to perfect their dances, they dedicate every weekend starting in August to the production.

Act I of the Holiday Showcase includes numbers choreographed by Sarah Long. Dancers will wow the audiences as they perform jazz, hip-hop and contemporary dances to the holiday songs Noel, O’ Come Emmanuel, Sleigh Ride and more!

Act II of the Holiday Showcase features the beloved, traditional Nutcracker piece The Grand Pas de Deux with the Sugar Plum Fairy, danced by Ashley Hancock and Rocky Harwood as The Cavalier. Act II also features The Waltz of the Flowers, the Drew Drop Fairy, danced by Abby Fuqua, will be accompanied by two Rose Princesses and thirteen Roses. In addition, Act II will also include the Spanish Chocolate, Chinese Tea Cookies, Peppermints, Arabian Spices, Reed Flutes, and Gingersnaps.

“Each year the dancers work so hard on the production,” said Director Tammie Lee. “We know the community loves this holiday tradition just as much as our dancers!”

Studio 4 Dance Theater is appreciative of The Wintercreek Foundation for their generous grant this year. With the support from the Wintercreek Foundation S4DT was able to purchase new costumes for the Holiday Showcase 2023.

The Holiday Showcase is made possible through parent volunteers and generous donations from the community. Donations come in various forms each year. Some were made directly to the dance theater, others donated items that will comprise raffle baskets.
