The ARISTOCATS kids
Young Peoples Musical Workshop Performances
Based on the beloved Disney animated film, and featuring a jazzy, upbeat score, Disney’s The Aristocats KIDS is a non-stop thrill ride of feline fun, complete with unbelievable twists and turns. In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess, her high-society cat, and her three little kittens. Laughs and adventure ensue as the greedy, bumbling butler pulls off the ultimate catnap caper. Now it’s up to the rough-and-tumble alley cat, Thomas O’Malley, and his band of swingin’ jazz cats to save the day!

Don't miss this great show with our very talented young performers!

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU
You Can’t Take It With You
By Moss Hart & George S. Kaufman
Directed by Allen Schmeltz

You Can’t Take It With You opens our post Covid Broadway Series at Sutter Street Theatre, Folsom. The production runs from July 16 - August 1 on Thursdays at 7:00pm, Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 4:00pm. Tickets are Adult $24, Senior $22, Student with ID Card $19 and Child $16.

Synopsis: Grandpa Vanderhof and his wacky family, the Sycamores, have been happily living their zany lives in his house by Columbia University in New York for many years. This family (and their friends) are a madcap group of eccentrics, marching to the beat of their own drum, with pride and joy. Their hobbies include collecting snakes, building fireworks in the basement, playing darts, writing a myriad of plays that never get published with a typewriter that was delivered to the wrong address years ago, taking ballet lessons from a Russian dance teacher and much more. Things like stress, jobs and paying taxes to the government are for other people, not for them! You Can’t Take It With You is a madcap, idealistic comedy that reinforces the idea that you can only live life to the fullest by doing whatever makes you happy.

LEGALLY BLOND the MUSICAL
WORKSHOP

Come learn from professional, experienced directors and arts educators in our Legally Blonde, The Musical Workshop. We will be using the full Broadway version of the show, not a youth version. The workshop is open to 13 to 20-year-olds.

Synopsis: Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle ingeniously charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors, and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
