Kick up your heels at Kinky Boots

 

Who knew that a musical about shoes would reveal what it means to be a real man.

Making its sold-out Sacramento debut, Kinky Boots is all about finding acceptance from others and from within. Based on a true story, its protagonists — Charlie Price (played by Curt Hansen), a by-the-books son of a shoe factory owner and Lola Simon (the outstanding J. Harrison Ghee), a London-based drag queen — are unlikely business partners, working to craft the perfect stiletto that’s strong enough for a woman (but made for a man) in a last ditch effort to save a failing shoe factory. After crafting the perfect thigh high boots in a perfect “red is for sex” shade, the two work to debut their “kinky boot” on the catwalks of Milan, but not without a few bumps in the road.

Railroad Museum enhances guest experience with reopening of Central Pacific Passenger Station

Railroad Museum enhances guest experience with reopening of Central Pacific Passenger Station

California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum & Foundation are pleased to announce the public reopening of the Central Pacific Railroad Passenger Station located on Front Street in Old Sacramento State Historic Park. Reconstructed 40 years ago as a re-creation of the original building as it appeared in 1876, the historic passenger station has been closed to the public for approximately 10 years. During that time, however, the Passenger Station has remained in active use as a housing area for the Museum’s rolling stock, overnight storage for locomotives and railroad equipment and periodically as the site for special events and educational programs. Effective immediately, an admission ticket to the California State Railroad Museum grants access to both the Museum and the Passenger Station and vice versa (tickets can be purchased at either location).
