King Arthur gets retelling at Sutter Street Theatre in Folsom

-A +A
Travel back to medieval times with “Adventures with Young King Arthur” at Sutter Street Theatre. The production is set in the past and present day. Follow Merlin as he teaches his young pupil Arthur that girls can be just as smart as boys. To do so Merlin magically travels to the present, where he invites Sara, a bright studious teenager, to visit the Dark Ages. Her skeptical brother Matt insists on coming along too, so together they are whisked back to a time of knights, castles and evil enchantresses. By the end of the play, Arthur has learned that girls can be very clever. Sara has learned you can’t always do everything by yourself, and everyone (even the terrible Green Knight) has learned that might doesn’t make right. Music, fun and adventure can be found in this new version of the Arthurian legend. The play runs at 1 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, Jan. 14 through Feb. 5. ~ Staff report * * * “Adventures with Young King Arthur” Written by: David Lewman Director: Mike Jimena Musical Director: Chris Schlagel & Connie Mockenhaupt Accompanist: Chris Schlagel When: 1 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, through Feb. 5 Where: Sutter Street Theatre, 717 Sutter St., Folsom Tickets: $17 for adults, $15 seniors, $13 children 12 and younger Reservations: (916) 353-1001, sutterstreettheatre.com
