The energy of the season seems to abound with shopping, decorations and local musicals. We have a very small theater in Sutter Creek but I am so happy that it is part of the community offering weekly performances. It is a very old theater and when I walk down the rows of seats it reminds me of times past and how special the theater must have been to the local population. Live theater seems to be larger than life even on a small scale as in our theater. The entertainers are true to their profession with glittering costumes and the stage is alive with lights and the draping curtains can swallow one up with each passing scene. Being in Sutter Creek and visiting the theater has made for, "A Painting Day".
