Well wishes to Foothill

The Miners Foundry was delighted to be able to lend our support Thursday by hosting a fundraiser for Foothill in their original home. We strongly support the existence of the Foothill Theatre Company that has been so deeply rooted in Nevada City.

The Foundry recognizes the challenges of sustaining a nonprofit arts organization, particularly in today’s difficult times: Ours is not a single bottom-line. We fully recognize and appreciate the value that the Foothill Theatre Company brings to our community culturally year in and year out, as well as the enhancement it offers our business community here in Nevada City.

The Miners Foundry and the Foothill Theatre Company share a long and productive history. More than 30 years ago Foothill began performing and mounting major productions at the Miners Foundry, then known as the American Victorian Museum.

Led by Artistic Director Diane with her husband Ralph Fetterly, a tenured professor of theater arts at UC Davis, they launched a great endeavor. They were joined by many dedicated members of the newly formed Foothill Theatre Company.

We have all benefited greatly from their creativity, innovation, dedication and hard work, and truly appreciate the 32 years they have given to all of us. We want them to succeed and to retain their Nevada City roots.

Gretchen H. Bond

Executive Director, Miners Foundry
