• Gold Fever Follies For 25 years the Rossland Gold Fever Follies has been going strong with original stories from Rossland’s rich gold mining history. While artistic license is often in play, many of the characters are based on real people from Rossland’s past.

Showings are at 3 pm and 7:30 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. This year’s new show is called A job well done, a brand new comedy by Kate Eldridge with music by Harris Anderson.
