Note: Venue Change - Moved Indoors Due to Air Quality

Due to poor air quality in Folsom from the Caldor Fire and out of an abundance of caution, the event will now be held inside the Harris Center for the Arts in Stage One. Previously purchased tickets for this event will be honored. All safety precautions will be taken to ensure the health and safety of our performers, patrons, volunteers, staff, and production crew. Facemasks must be worn at all times while inside the Center and parties will be spaced out within the venue. While the circumstances are not ideal, we are excited to welcome you to the Harris Center's first live indoor performance since March 2020!

Although the Harris Center’s stage will temporarily dim effective July 1, 2020, the community spirit created over the last 10 years will continue. Art sustains us during the good times and the not-so-good, and we sincerely hope that your memories of Harris Center performances remain and remind you that there is a light at the end of this tunnel.
