Rossland’s Gold Fever Follies new show does not disappoint

The Gold Fever Follies began their season this week and that the summer entertainment has begun in Rossland.

The Gold Fever Follies began their season last weekend in Rossland and do regular shows Tuesday through Saturday at the Miners' Hall.

The Gold Fever Follies began their season this week and that the summer entertainment has begun in Rossland.

This year the Follies take on a new play and some new cast and some old in the familiarity of the Miner’s Hall.

The play centres around the two Johns in the town, one who is concerned with cutting back the crime and keeping the peace and the other who is more concerned with having a drink.

The conflict begins when the first mayor of Rossland lets the first John go and hires the second one. From that point on order in town disappears.

The play is fueled on by clever quips and audience participation, and it’s easy to see that much like a comedy show the performers are spurred on by the audiences reaction.

The better the audience the better the play which works in a grand circle to make the experience great for everyone.

Lisa Henderson, artistic director for the Follies, said the shows can sometimes surprise with how busy it can get.

They had had a large crowd in Tuesday afternoon, which had thouroughly enjoyed the play’s humour and quips, even making sound effects.

The Follies had their premiere show Saturday. Performances take place from June 30 to Aug. 25, with regular showings at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday at the Miners’ Hall.

General Admission is $13, seniors $10 and Children 12 and under $8.
