Set in a saloon in a western mining camp in the 1850's, Gold Dust is a very loose musical adaptation of Moliere's The Miser. The story concerns a prospector named Jebediah Harp who has hit it rich and hoards his gold. Perfect for high schools, colleges and community theatres, this is another hit from Louisville's famed Actors Theater. The music and lyrics are by the very talented Jim Wann.
"It's spunky and raucous, clangorous and tuneful. It overflows with a theatrical zest that is pretty much irresistible." - Louisville Courier Journal
"The small musical that budget minded theatres across the land have been praying for." - Louisville Times
"Best of all is Wann's music, a mixture of jazz, blues, rock, folk and country western styles." - Variety
