(Updated 3/8/2022) Description of the B Street Theatre production of “A Moving Day”, the last production at the original B Street Theatre located on B Street in Midtown Sacramento.
It somehow seems appropriate that the last play at the current B Street Theatre location is titled A Moving Day.
The 2018 season will find B Street Theatre settled into its new building complex on Capitol Avenue in Midtown Sacramento.
A Moving Day, penned by Buck Busfield and Dave Pierini, follows a long-time tradition at B Street Theatre – the performance of a new and original holiday play. I recall hearing or reading at some point that the tradition came into being out of necessity – a lack of funds to purchase the rights to a play.
A friend and I, season ticket holders for many years, enjoyed A Moving Day this past weekend. A Moving Day is playing until December 24 so you still have time to see the play and say your goodbyes to the original B Street Theatre location.

You might be surprised to learn that A Moving Day is a comedy. Or, you may not be surprised if you are a B Street Theatre regular.
In A Moving Day, Patrick (played by Greg Alexander) has returned after many years to his former home – the house is in foreclosure. He has returned to the house to find something.
Two movers, Frank (played by Kurt Johnson) and Casey (played by Tim Liu) arrive to find Patrick in the house. They have strict instructions to clear everything out.
Patrick asks Frank and Casey to let him stay in the house just one more night so that he can find the unnamed something – noting that he had reduced their workload by boxing up numerous items.
Mouse (played by Enid Ignatius) is a young homeless woman not quite right in her mind who has been making use of the empty house. Mouse helps Patrick in his search.
To Sum Up
To sum up, what Patrick discovers will have to remain a mystery for now – I don’t want to give away the ending.
