Sutter Street Theatre winds up its seventh season with one of Folsom’s favorite holiday traditions, “Holiday in the Hills” — an original  musical story that takes place in Folsom’s Historic District.

Set on Sutter Street at the end of the 19th century, all of the characters either lived in or visited Folsom in the late 1800s. The stories written by Mike Jimena and Connie Mockenhaupt are based in absolute fact, give or take a lie or two, and some things the writers just made up! Enjoy some brand new surprises and some of your favorites.

Now in its eight year and under the direction of Mockenhaupt, “Holiday in the Hills” is appropriate for all ages and guaranteed to put audiences in in the holiday spirit!

Showtimes are 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, 4 p.m. on Sundays, plus special 7 p.m. performances on Dec. 18 & 23.

The holiday fun continues with Sutter Street’s opening of “A Winnie-the-Pooh Christmas Tail” on Dec. 14 — book, music and lyrics by James W. Rodgers. This production is directed by Allen Schmeltz with musical direction by Sharon Welling.

A very special Friend-and-Relation tells Christopher Robin a story of a Christmas Eve very long ago (about last year) when Eeyore, the old gray donkey who lives by himself in the thistle corner of Hundred-Acre Wood, was absolutely miserable. It seems that he lost his tail and Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet got all of their friends together and a search was organized. There is a great deal of fun and excitement, plus delightful songs, in the adventure that follows. The theme is friendship and that’s what makes this a very special and enchanting holiday musical suitable for the entire family.

Show times are 1 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through Dec. 28 with special 4 p.m. performances Dec. 18-20 and 1 p.m. performances on Dec. 23 & 24.

Sutter Street Theatre is located at 717 Sutter Street in historic downtown Folsom. For tickets and more information call (916) 353-1001 or visit SutterStreetTheatre.com.
