dramaworks is all about the love of theatre and the community!
The mission of dramaworks is to promote the enjoyment of theatre arts, facilitate children’s and community theatre programs, and utilize our venue as an educational path to reduce societal barriers and improve the lives of rural families and children.
Board of Directors
Edie O'Connor is co-founder and Executive Director of dramaworks, and currently runs the SWEET program. Edie studied dance and movement at San Francisco State College in the 1970s and taught school at Westlake Junior High in Oakland. She later obtained her Physician Assistant training at US Davis. She moved to Quincy, California in August of 1988 and was the first full time provider at the Plumas Community Clinic. She joined Dr. Lawrence Price at Quincy Family Medicine in 1992. At this point she got involved with local community theatre productions which took her back to her original interests in movement and dance. In 1991 Edie was in a theatrical production with Earl Thompson and they have been together ever since. Together they created dramaworks as a not for profit corporation to support live theatre as a mechanism to enrich and improve the quality of life for all those in rural Plumas County, California. The West End Theatre was 10 years in the building and is now busy and full of activity.
