Sierra Stages begins its 11th Season with the dark comedy “Hand to God” by Robert Askins, playing from February 28 through March 16 at the historic Nevada Theatre in Nevada City.

After the death of his father, meek Jason finds an outlet for his anxiety at the Christian Puppet Ministry, in the devoutly religious, relatively quiet small town of Cypress, Texas. Jason’s complicated relationships with the town pastor, the school bully, the girl next door, and—most especially—his mother are thrown into upheaval when Jason’s puppet, Tyrone, takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. “Hand to God” explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us.

Performances of “Hand to God” are on Thursday, February 28 at 7 pm; Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM; and Sunday, March 10 at 2 PM. WARNING – “Hand to God” is not for those who are easily offended by raw language, adult and sexual situations, unconventional religious themes, and violence. All seating for “Hand to God” is reserved. For the first two performances on February 28 and March 1, tickets are $20 for all seats. Thereafter, ticket prices are $30 (rows A-H) and $25 (rows J-O). Tickets may be purchased with no additional charge online at and over the phone by calling Sierra Stages at 530.346.3210. Tickets may also be purchased at the door, subject to availability. $15 Student Rush tickets are also sold at the door, subject to availability.

“Hand to God” is directed by Sharon Winegar. The cast includes Nevada County actors Lois Masten Ewing, John Gardiner, Michaela King, Danny McCammon, and Trevor Wade.

The Sierra Stages 2019 Season also includes the legendary musical “Cabaret” (July 11 – August 3 at the Nevada Theatre) and the revue “You’re Gonna Love Tomorrow: A Stephen Sondheim Evening” (October 3 – 26 at the Off Center Stage in Grass Valley). The Sierra Stages FLEX PASS - 3 Tickets for $75 - may be purchased for a limited time only. The 3 tickets may be used to see one, two, or three shows. Sierra Stages also invites everyone to become a Sierra Stages Member with a tax-deductible donation that supports quality local theatre. For more information about the Sierra Stages FLEX PASS and Sierra Stages Memberships visit or call Sierra Stages at 530-346-3210.
