WIND IN THE WILLOWS
Opening This Saturday!
By Kenneth Graham
Adapted for the stage by Richard Hellesen
Music and Lyrics by Michael Silversher
Directed by Allen Schmeltz
Musical Direction by David Williams
Choreography by Dian Hoel

A new musical version of the classic story. Tired of spring cleaning his dismal little home, Mole ventures up into the Wide World, embarking on a series of adventures with his new companions–the clever Rat, wise old Badger, and especially the motorcar-crazed Mr. Toad. From boating to caravanning to the Battle of Toad Hall, they’re adventures that, in the end, still lead back to the home that is always waiting, happy to hear a song sung like willows in the wind…

November 20 - November 12
Saturdays and Sundays at 1:00pm

OUT TO PASTURE
Opens November 20 ~ Only three performances!
Written by Michelle Carter
Directed by Jenny Connors
Starring Alison Gilbreath and Featuring Erik Dahl

Produced by Women’s Theatre Collective and Hosted by Sutter Street Theatre

50% of the profit will be donated to
Tubman House of Sacramento.

Jennifer is a hard-working, married, mother of two trying to maintain her social-life, love-life and sanity while coming to terms with turning 50. Out to Pasture explores the humorous and raw moments of grappling with physical changes, a changing identity, jobs, kids, aging parents and society’s stereotypes. At turns thought-provoking and hilarious, Out to Pasture will strike a chord with women of any age (and might provide explanations for some things men have been scratching their heads over for years).

Performances
Saturday, November 20 at 4:00pm
Sunday, November 21 at 7:30pm
Wednesday, November 24 at 7:00pm

HOLIDAY IN THE HILLS
Our 16th year of Holiday in the Hills!
By Mike Jimena & Connie Mockenhaupt

The story takes place in the late 1880’s right here on Sutter Street where the residents of the town and surrounding areas have gotten together to celebrate the Holidays. A lot of research went into the people and places that were here in the late 1800’s, give or take a year or two, and everyone you see was an actual resident or visitor to Folsom at that time of year. Come see a show guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit. One of the most enjoyable shows of the year with dynamic characters and fun music!

December 4 - December 23 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 4:00pm plus 7:00pm performances on December 9, 16, 20, 21, 22, 23!

Your money back if you don't leave the theatre filled with the Holiday Spirit!
