Sutter Street Theatre is celebrating the heritage of the region with a melodrama titled
“The Legend of Gold Rush Sal or Mud in the Street” along with an oleo.
Once a staple of entertainment for the foothills and Folsom, the melodrama is
entertainment in its purest form with minimal glitz, just pure fun for all ages.
“Way Out West” is an evening of wild west family fun, comedy, and music set in gold
rush Folsom, featuring Gold Rush Sal.
You can boo the villain and cheer the hero!
There will be plenty of cowboys, outlaws, dance hall girls, and even a barbershop quartet.
The evening is capped off with a classic oleo. An oleo, the
predecessor to vaudeville and burlesque, features fast-paced musical numbers interspersed
with comedy skits and sing-alongs.
For reservations call (916) 353-1001.
