Sutter Street Theatre in Historic Folsom will open “Leading Ladies” by Ken Ludwig and directed by Warren Harrison at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 8, with a reception following the performance.

In this hilarious comedy by the author of “Lend Me A Tenor” and “Moon Over Buffalo,” two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, Pa., is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews they resolve to pass themselves off as beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister. Meg knows that there’s a wide world out there but it’s not until she meets “Maxine and Stephanie” that she finally gets a taste of it.

The “Leading Ladies” cast is: Leo (Ryan Adame), Jack (Mikey Coleman); Meg (Lindsay Jones), Audrey (Kayla Chalko), Florence (Hazel Johnson), Doc (Ken Watkins), Butch (Todd Kugler) and Duncan (Warren Harrison).

“Leading Ladies” will Continue on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. through July 8. Tickets are $23 general, $21 seniors, $18 students with an ID card, and $15 for children 12 and younger. Tickets can be purchased by calling (916) 353-1001 or online at SutterStreetTheatre.com.
