11/02/2019 - 50's Sock Hop Karaoke Party Tonight at the Metropolitan
San Andreas, CA...50's Sock Hop Karaoke Party Tonight at the Metropolitan


Originally a hotel, the historic Metropolitan was built at the base of Main Street in 1859. A fire consumed the building in 1926, and in its place a movie theater was constructed in the early 1950s. It was later renovated as a dining hall and performance venue.

Rumor has it that Mark Twain found his inspiration for The Jumping Frog right in the Metropolitan’s luxurious bar-room.
11/02/2019 - Sierra Repertory Theatre's Production of Grease Runs Through December 15th
Columbia, CA...Now though December 15th the Sierra Repertory Theatre is performing the classic musical Grease. The Historic Fallon House theatre in Columbia the production venue. It is about Rydell High's senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding "Burger Palace Boys" and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking "Pink Ladies" in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head "greaser" Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their "Summer Nights" as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as "Greased Lightnin'," "It's Raining on Prom Night," "Alone at the Drive-In Movie" recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. Book, Music, and Lyrics by Warren Casey and Jim Jacobs. Performances are weekly on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday of each week. Click below for tickets...





About Sierra Repertory Theatre
Now in our 40th year as the premier theatre company of California’s Gold Country, Sierra Repertory Theatre has earned a local and national reputation for delivering artistic excellence and exceptional world-class entertainment.

The Wizard of Oz, May 31-July 21 at the Historic Fallon House Theatre in Columbia State Park.
The productions in our 2019 Season collectively tell a story about the value of strong communities and the quest to find home. Audiences will find their stories and journeys reflected onstage in the troupe of Broadway vagabonds upon which A Chorus Line is based; The Scarecrow, the Tinman, and the Cowardly Lion helping Dorothy and Toto back home to Kansas in The Wizard of Oz; the high school greasers and Pink Ladies of Grease, who are all looking for a place to belong. To celebrate our 40th Anniversary it was important to pick shows that celebrated community and comradery. It is a fundamental truth that we would not be able to operate in Tuolumne County if it were not for the combined efforts and support of our audience, our business partners, and local charitable organizations. Our 40th Anniversary is not simply a celebration of Sierra Rep, but of our relationship with Tuolumne County. We can’t wait to see you at the theatre!

11/02/2019 - 10th Annual Murphys Dia de los Muertos, Saturday November 2, 2019 from 11am-6pm
Murphys, CA...Celebrate the Day of the Dead in the Land of the Skulls for our 10th Annual Dia de los Muertos celebration so plan to join us! Murphys businesses and tasting rooms will be celebrating their 10th annual Day of the Dead again this year with traditional decorations, treats and celebrations between 11am and 6pm.Every year on the first Saturday in November, Murphys celebrates the lives of those who have passed on but are with us in heart and spirit on this day.


Participating businesses and vendors will be offering authentic cultural art, food, sugar skulls, face painting, and live music, as well as displaying ofrendas (altars) celebrating the lives of those who have passed on but are with us in heart and spirit on the Day of the Dead.

Join us for the celebration in the Park from 11:00 am to 5:30 pm featuring face painters, folklorico dancers, rondalla musicians, and artisan vendors. Traditional food and drinks will be for sale in the Park until 4:00 pm or whenever they sell out. Purchases of food, wine, and beer will benefit the Murphys Community Club who are responsible for maintaining and improving our lovely park along the creek.

The Catrina and Catrin Dress Contest will begin at 4:30 pm in the Community Park followed by a final blessing of the messages to the dead. Those wishing to compete in the Catrina Contest must be signed up by 3 pm. Stop by our booth in the Park to sign up. There will be competitions for men, women, and children. The final blessing of the messages to the dead will begin at 5:30 pm. Mexican hot chocolate and pan de muertos will be available for purchase during & after or until it’s sold out.

The Folklorico Dancers will be offering dancing lessons in the Native Sons Hall beginning at 2:30 pm. Sign up at our booth in the Park or just come by the Hall at 2:30pm.

In the event of rain, all entertainment and food sales will be in the Native Sons Hall at 389 Main Street in Historic Downtown Murphys.

Don’t forget to stop by the Murphys Historic Schoolhouse on Jones for more altars and activities including the characters from Coco.

This ancient holiday traces its roots back to the indigenous cultures of Mexico, Latin America, and Europe but has become inextricably intertwined with the Catholic observance of All Saints Day and All Souls Day over time. Although this celebration is associated with the dead, it is traditionally a period full of life, happiness, color, food, family, and fun. In Mexico, outdoor markets display and sell symbolic items like special breads, pottery, baskets, candles, paper puppets, candy skulls, and flowers. Skeletons are also an important symbol of this day and are displayed hugging, dancing and laughing in shop windows and on street corners.

Traditional activities are believed to “welcome the souls of the dead.” The souls are said to return each year to enjoy the pleasures of the life that they once had. These souls are thought to return as spirits from another world to be with their loved ones for a few brief hours. A widely held belief is that the souls of children (angelitos) return first so food and gifts appealing to children are set out for them. The adult dead are said to return a day or two later and their favorite items, as well as elaborate food and drink, are set out for them as well. It is believed that candlelight, as well as the scent of marigolds and copal incense, will help the ghosts find their way back home.

The public is welcome to participate in the remembrance of loved ones by contributing items to the Community Altar in the Park or specific altars. Please contact the individual business owner first though to make sure there is an appropriate space for your item. Make sure to check out our program online to see a list of all the Ofrendas and activities or pick up a printed program at our booth in the Park. Programs will also be available at The Spice Tin, Marisolio Tasting Room, Tanner Vineyards Tasting Room, Murphys Pourhouse and the Bodega del Sur Tasting Room in the days before the event.

Like the event on our Facebook page where you can find additional information on this year’s celebration and download the event program and map. Or visit us at visitmurphys.com/ for additional information.

And, last but not least, thank you to our generous sponsors and volunteers who make this event possible each year.

Celebrate the Day of the Dead with us in the Land of the Skulls!
