Jan. – Feb. 1998
CATS produced “Wooden Fish Songs” in 1997, a concert reading, by Ruthanne Lum McCunn and directed by Don McCunn, at the Off Broad Street Theatre in Nevada City and at The Studio Theatre in Grass Valley. The performance was a benefit for the Nevada City Chinese Quarter Society. The production also toured Yuba College in Marsyville, Yuba Theatre in Downieville, and the American River College in Sacramento.
“Wooden Fish Songs” tells the true story of Lue Gim Gong, the Chinese man recognized for developing a strain of Florida oranges that produced millions of dollars for the Florida citrus industry.
