_Welcome to dramaworks!
dramaworks is a creative outlet for all ages! Located in the beautiful Northern California town of Quincy, we are a not for profit 501(c)(3) corporation started in the year 2000 by Earl Thompson and Edie O’Connor.
Our programs provide the framework for theatrical expression at every age! The Magic Beanstalk Players consist of kindergarten through eighth grades students who love to learn about drama. They work together to create spectacular productions. In April 2014, 36 of Quincy's talented youth mounted the production of Godspell JR. It was a resounding success! We just held our second Summer Drama Camp for kids 1st-8th grade. Click here to view pictures from this fun-filled week!
The SWEET program is comprised of high school students who learn to become leaders in their community and among their peers. Students discuss various social issues and work on associated projects. This year, students wrote, directed, produced and performed in a video to educate others about problem gambling.
Finally, dramaworks Community Theatre program produces productions for adults and youth alike. In March 2012, Parallel Lives by Mo Gaffney and Kathey Najimy had a three week run at our brand new home, the West End Theatre. In September, Hermes by Bennett Fisher had a successful four weekend run. In 2013, One-Acts: Black Comedy & Dinner for One delighted audiences, as well as, our first musical, Annie! 2014 brought us Nunsense & we just kicked off our first official season of plays this August with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat.
