Have some fun in Nevada City

Noises Before is a whimsical tour of downtown Nevada City, before Foothill Theatre Company’s 30th Anniversary season-opening play, Noises Off.

Participants in this one-of-a-kind event will purchase a “Door Card”, which will admit them to a total of 3 party destinations around town before the show (for wine and gourmet nibbles), then it’s off to the Nevada Theatre for the Opening Night performance.

“Doors” include: Citronee, Exposure, Indian Springs Tasting Room, Java John’s, JJ Jackson’s, Julie Baker Fine Art, Laloo, Las Katarinas, Lily Vigil, Mowen Solinsky Gallery, The Truffle Shop, and Wisdom Cafe.

This formal gala begins promptly at 6:30 p.m. Friday. Times and “doors” will be listed on your “Door Card.” Cards may be purchased at the box office (265-8587) for a minimum donation of $75.

Concert to benefit ‘Free the Children’

A benefit concert for Nevada Union High School’s “Free The Children” club will be 6 p.m. March 12 at the Miners Foundry, featuring local bands The Eloi, Fresh Young Blood, Love in Binary and Eaten By Wolves.

All the proceeds are going to “Free The Children,” which is a nonprofit club of kids helping kids in third world countries. Last spring a student started a chapter of “Free The Children” here at Nevada Union High School. Last year the club sent money it raised for a clean water system in Ecuador, and is currently raising money to help build new school buildings in Sierra Leone.

Tickets will be $5 at the door, which will open at 5:30 p.m. For more information, call 265-3018.
