“Sing” comes to the Yuba Theatre in Downieville
Friday, June 16th at 7:30 PM
Directors: Christophe Lourdet, Garth Jennings Writer: Garth Jennings
Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson
Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Buster Moon, a dapper koala, presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal-some, might even say delusional-optimist, who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.
This program is part the Sierra County Arts Council’s “Movie Nights” series with funding from the Bill Graham Foundation. The Sierra County Arts Council is a local partner of the California Arts Council.

The Downieville School Holiday Show and Baked Goods Auction was a sweet success as parents and community members gathered to see local students perform at the Yuba Theatre for Holiday on Main last weekend.
The event began with Shelly Fischer’s Cubhouse and Daycare preschool children dressed in reindeer beanies and singing and miming to “Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer”. How cute is that? Ms. Galan’s class performed the poem “The Game of Letters” and “Jingle Bells” with Katrina Bosworth accompanying on piano. Ms. Maire’s class did poems followed by a short play “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”.
Tina Floyd did a wonderful job directing the play, Cracker the Grinch and Bette Jo Lang of the Sierra Turnpike Players also lent their talents to make the play spectacular delight. The costumes, “hair” and make-up were amazing thanks to Cracker, Tina, Lynnea White, Bette Jo, Kathy Fischer and Melissa Kinneer. Kathy Fischers Zumba Crew led all the performers in the dancing finale “Jingle Bell Rock”.
Following the student performances was the traditional Baked Goods Auction, where eager audience members dueled for their favorite holiday treats including pies, cookies, cake, and fudge baked locally. Auctioneer extraordinaire, Frank Lang, managed to lead the bidding to amazing heights including Lynn Fillo’s chocolate bourbon pecan pie which went for whopping $95 twice! Proceeds from the auction reached $898.
Special thank you to Darcy White and always to Greg Bostrom for Technical Support and to all the generous bakers and bidders. Funds raised by the auction go to benefit the Artists in Schools program which brings Sierra County artists to teach at Downieville School. This event was Co-Sponsored by Downieville School and the Sierra County Arts Council.
Thank you to all the volunteers and community members who helped to make this event a success. The Sierra County Arts Council is the State-Local Partner with the California Arts Council.
