Sutter Street Theatre announces 2018 seasonBy: Telegraph Staff
Folsom’s Sutter Street Theatre announced their 2018 season schedule this past Sunday, Nov. 5, during their annual Gala and Season Announcement Party.
The season is filled with a great variety of shows to appeal to all tastes in both the Off-Broadway Series and Family Series.
The season opens with the return of the Carsino Show, a takeoff on a mafia-style Johnny Carson show. The theater also has two original shows – Straight Camp and Choices, a show that will eventually travel to schools in their Breaking Boarders school program.
The Off-Broadway series brings you an Agatha Christie play, Murder on the Nile, the ever popular On Golden Pond, the very funny Duck Hunter Shoots Angel, Ken Ludwig’s delightful comedy Moon over Buffalo and a new play called The Kids Left, the Dog Died, Now What.
The theater is also bringing five musicals to the Off-Broadway Series including Spelling Bee and We Will Rock You. And of course, Evil Dead will be back for its eighth year as well as Holiday in the Hills to brighten your holiday season.
In the Family Series there will be five musicals including the charming Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Magic Toyshop and the hilarious play Humpty Dumpty is Missing or The Mysterious Case of the Fallen Egg, plus The Adventures of Sleepy Hollow.
Among the others, the popular Little Woman will bring its wonderful story to the stage. Boy Who Stole the Stars with its fantasy and magic will also grace the season for your enjoyment. In addition, the theater’s workshops will be performing Les Mis, Jr., 101 Dalmatians and Mary Poppins.
All shows are subject to obtaining final rights to produce so check the theater’s website at SutterStreetTheatre.com to confirm shows.
