03/11/2022 - The Blue Mountain Theater Opens a New Play in March!
West Point, CA...After two long dark seasons, the Blue Mountain Players are excited to open a new play and welcome patrons back to our little theater in the heart of West Point. We dare you not to die laughing with this local production of The Cemetery Club, written by Ivan Menchell and directed by Vicki Snead-Hinkell.

The Cemetary Club tells the story of three Jewish widows who meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands’ graves. Ida, played by Sherry Parkey, is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life; Lucille, played by Nicole Wilson, is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun; and Doris, Debbie Blankenship, is priggish and judgmental, particularly when Sam the butcher, played by Craig Lafargue, enters the scene. Also introducing Sandy Gilcrest as Mildred.

Opens March 11th! Opening Gala at 6:30 p.m. Curtain at 7:30pm
Fridays & Saturdays, March 12th, 18th, 19th, 25th & 26th at 7:30pm

San Andreas, CA...The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) is conducting a prescribed burning operation on the Winton-Schaad Vegetation Management Plan (VMP) site.

Additional prescribed burns within the project area are anticipated throughout the winter and spring, depending upon fuel and weather conditions. Resources assigned to the VMP will consist of two engines, one fire crew, a Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) representative, and cooperating agencies.
