BE MORE CHILL
Opens This Weekend!
Book by Joe Tracz
Music and Lyrics by Joe Iconis
Directed by Alison Gilbreath
Musical Direction by David Williams

Due to mature language and sexual references, Be More Chill is rated PG-13

Based on the novel by Ned Vizzini, Be More Chill is the story of Jeremy Heere, your average, nothing-special teenager trying to survive life in his suburban New Jersey high school. That is, until the day he finds out about “The Squip,” a pill-sized supercomputer that promises to bring him everything he desires most. Thus begins a journey that pits Jeremy’s desire to be popular against his struggle to remain true to his authentic self. When things with the SQUIP take an unexpected, darker turn, is Jeremy willing to lose his best friend, his crush, his classmates, and the whole world, all in an effort to be more chill?

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.

A fabulously fun award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Action-packed and exploding with memorable songs and dynamic dances – this musical is so much fun, it should be illegal!

By Kenneth Grahame
Adapted for the stage by Richard Hellesen
Music and Lyrics by Michael Silversher
Directed by Allen Schmeltz

November 20- December 12
Saturdays & Sundays at 1:00PM

Synopsis
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…

OUT TO PASTURE
Produced by Women’s Theatre Collective and Hosted by Sutter Street Theatre
Written by Michelle Carter
Directed by Jenny Connors
Starring Alison Gilbreath and Featuring Erik Dahl

November 21st 7:30 PM

Synopsis
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).

HOLIDAY IN THE HILLS
By Mike Jimena & Connie Mockenhaupt

Thursdays at 7:00 PM
Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00 PM
Sundays at 4:00 PM
Additional Performances on December 21st & 22nd at 7:00 PM
Special Performance: Dec 3 at 8pm, because of the tree lighting we will be having a free show in the theatre.
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, current music!

Appropriate for all ages!
