There are plenty of things to do in Folsom
Need to find something to do this weekend? Folsom and El Dorado Hills offer plenty of options. 'GREASE' OPENS IN EL DORADO HILLS The El Dorado Musical Theatre's production of the musical "Grease" opens Friday night at Oak Ridge High School and runs through Feb. 21. Featuring a cast of dozens, the story follows Rydell High in the 1950s. For more information, go to edmt.info. Look for a review in next week's Telegraph. FINAL WEEKEND OF BROTHERS The Sutter Street Theatre production of "Brothers!" concludes its six-week run on Saturday. The play reunites the cast of the theater's popular "Escanaba in da Moonlight" and shows at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. They are offering an additional 4 p.m. Saturday show as well. There is no show on Sunday because, according to Mike Jimena, they didn't want to compete with the Super Bowl.
