Come join the Rossland Gold Fever Follies this summer as they celebrate their 34th season of rip-roaring, high-kicking entertainment!
As always, the Follies will be melding fact, fiction and imagination when they present this summer’s BRAND NEW original musical comedy highlighting an aspect of Rossland’s rich gold rush days of the late 1890s. The Big BOOM Theory, written by Jamie Santano, follows the story of a young female metallurgist who travels to the Rossland area to get work at Consolidated Mining and Smelting —the predecessor of TECK. But as can be expected, she faces that glass ceiling that women are still confronted with today—and is refused work because she is a woman. Having run out of money, she is left with little options but to work in the Bodega Hotel as a dancehall girl. But she refuses to give up on the idea of working as the trained scientist that she is, and has to figure out a way to prove herself. How she goes about that will be revealed when you come see the show! Also included in the storyline is Lou Gagnon and his flying steamshovel. You won’t want to miss seeing it take flight!
JULY 1 to AUGUST 25 2 shows daily, Tuesday through Saturday at 3:00pm and 7:30pm.
*SPECIAL 7:30 SHOW on CANADA DAY – No Matinee*
