Sutter Street Theatre presets a stage adaptation of the very popular movie “Harold & Maude” about a suicidal 19-year-old boy, Harold, who finally learns how to truly live when he meets that delightfully wacky octogenarian, Maude.

In this Colin Higgins story Harold is the proverbial poor little rich kid. His alienation has caused him to attempt suicide several times, though these incidents are more cries for attention than actual attempts. His peculiar attachment to Maude, whom he meets at a funeral (a mutual passion), is what saves him and what will captivate the audience.

Warren Harrison directs this production of “Harold & Maude” opening at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 3, at Sutter Street Theatre, 717 Sutter St. in Folsom. The show continues at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 4 p.m. on Sundays through Aug. 18.  Tickets are $23 general, $21 seniors, $18 students with an ID card, and $15 children 12 and younger. There is a discount of $2 per ticket for groups of 10 or more. Purchase tickets by calling (916) 353-1001 or  visiting SutterStreetTheatre.com. Call the box office for group orders.
