The Boy Who Stole The Stars
by Julian Wiles
directed by Allen Schmeltz
“It steals the audience and steals hearts,” wrote a critic when this warm and moving play opened at the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina. A young boy discovers his grandfather is dying. The old man’s behavior is different; he’s short-tempered and no longer tells his wonderful stories. The boy enlists the grandfather’s aid in helping him with a school project—counting the stars. Their togetherness seems to renew the old man’s interest and he begins telling stories, one of them about the dragon in the sky. The dragon, he explains, is there to guard the stars. An old legend says that should the stars be returned to earth; it would mean a new paradise with no unhappiness, no death. Hearing this, the boy goes off to slay the dragon and return the stars to earth, seeking a means of keeping his grandfather from dying. 
The show runs August 11 through September 8 on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:00pm
Tickets are $18 general, $15 seniors and students with an ID card and $13 for children 12 and under.

"What can you say about a play in which nothing happens except the changes that any family goes through? Well, when it is as charmingly written as “On Golden Pond,” with all-too-human characters portrayed by actors who make them live on stage; you have to say this is a show you won’t want to miss." --Gerry Camp, Folsom Telegraph ( Click here to read entire review.)

This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory—but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the “grandchild” the elderly couple have longed for, and as Norman revels in taking his ward fishing and thrusting good books at him, he also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness—and slang—in return.
Performances are through August 19, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm, Sundays at 4:00pm.

Here is the spooky classic story by Washington Irving, presented with all the thrills, chills and laughs that keep audiences on the edge of their seats. The storybook tale revolves around the main characters—the bumbling, awkward schoolteacher, Ichabod, the coquettish Katrina and Ichabod's brutish rival, Brom Bones. As much fun as the play presents, it saves the best for last—the ride of the headless horseman. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is exciting family entertainment.
Auditions are August 19 at 7:00pm in our annex at 710 Figueroa Street, Folsom.

Rehearsals begin August 21 and are general Mondays through Thursdays at 7:00pm.

The show runs September 22 to October 21.
