The issue of immigration and migration has been in the forefront of daily news as of late, fueling all kinds of thoughts and controversies.

Many people are not aware that Chinese immigrants founded the fishing industry in Monterey, California, in the 1850s. This little known history will be the focus of Red Altar at the Nevada Theater on Saturday November 18, at 8:00 p.m., offering a critical look at immigration and migration in America. Red Altar is written, produced, and performed by Nancy Wang and Robert Kichuchi-Yngojo of Eth-Noh-Tec, an acclaimed international storytelling troupe from San Francisco. The show is appropriate for all ages. It is historical, culturally inviting, and thought-provoking. Tickets are $20 and are available in Grass Valley at Briar Patch, the Book Seller, online at, and at the door.

The following day’s companion workshop, “Immigratitude®: Crossing Borders, Collages of Connection,” taught by the actors themselves, earmarked for 25 teachers and educators as continuing education through a grant from Community Players Trust, is on Sunday, November 19, from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the Houser Room of the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools in Nevada City at 112 Nevada City Highway. To attend the play and workshop through this grant, at no cost to you, contact Jeannie Wood at You must be able to attend both days in order to be considered for the grant.
