Join Sutter Street Theatre for a delightful musical that takes the audience to both medieval times and the present day.

“Adventures With Young King Arthur” follows 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.

“Adventures With Young King Arthur” by  David Lewman opens Jan. 14 and runs Saturdays and Sundays at 1 p.m. through Feb. 5.

This production is directed by Mike Jimena with Chris Schlagel and Connie Mockenhaupt as musical directors.
