Additional Info

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.
