The Nevada Theatre is California’s oldest original-use theater. It is located downtown in the picturesque gold mining town of Nevada City. The building, California Historic Landmark No. 863, has seen thousands of presentations over its near-150 year history including performances from Mark Twain and Emma Nevada to Mötley Crüe and The Second City comedy troupe. Today it is a vital part of the community and is used for live theatre, movies, and special events.

LeGacy Productions presents the return of their most popular Christmas show yet, “Tiny Tim’s Christmas” at the Nevada Theatre November 28th through December 28th. Judy Blake once again directs.
The delightful story reminiscent of Dickens’ classic “A Christmas Carol” brings audiences to New York City, where “Tiny” Tim Cratchit, all grown up, fulfills his childhood dream of owning a toy shop. However, Tim has become jaded and miserable in his life, much like his “Uncle” Ebeneezer Scrooge was before his visit from the three spirits on Christmas Eve. When Tim finds out about the passing of his “Uncle” Ebeneezer, he is visited by Scrooge’s spirit, and confronts his mistakes and wrong doings.
LeGacy cofounder and producer Alvis LeGate takes on the title role of Tim Cratchit, joined by Sacramento’s own Steven Minow as Scrooge. LeGacy veteran Nadia White joins in as Grace, Tim’s shop manager. The rest of the twenty person cast is a mix of LeGacy veterans and newcomers, who sing and dance their way through the shops and streets of London and New York City. Shawnna Frazer choreographs.
LeGacy favorite designers Darryl Stines on the set, Sharon Sciabaca on costumes. Tickets to “Tiny Tim’s Christmas” are $20 in advance, $22 at the door, available at Harmony Books, The Bookseller, online at legacypresents.com or by calling (530)268-5419
