‘Sarah, Plain and Tall’ at Sutter Street

Sutter Street Theatre presents a heart-warming story to Folsom.

From Patricia MacLachlan’s Newbery Award-winning book, “Sarah, Plain and Tall” brings to life the charming story of a 1900s Kansas farmer, Jacob Witting, a widower with two children, Anna and Caleb, who places an ad in the newspapers seeking a wife. He receives a letter from a Sarah Wheaton of Maine who says she will visit the family for a month to see how things work out: “I will come by train. I will wear a yellow bonnet. I am plain and tall.”

Narrated by Anna reminiscing on the eve of her wedding, the story unfolds in a fascinating flashback on that often exciting, sometimes tumultuous month, when Sarah and the Wittings came to know one another and learned a few things about themselves as well. The joys and challenges of everyday life are richly depicted in this classic

The Sutter Street production is adapted by Joseph Robinette and directed by Allen Schmeltz.

“Sarah, Plain and Tall” opens at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7, and continues at 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays through Sept. 29. Tickets are $17 general, $15 seniors and $13 children 12 and younger.  There is a discount of $2 per ticket for groups of 10 or more; Call the box office for group orders.. Tickets can be purchased by calling (916) 353-1001 or visiting SutterStreetTheatre.com.
