The story centers on Persephone Proudheart, who is in search of her lover Cyril Twigbucket. She worries he has passed away in the mountains, while in fact, he has found a richer reward in his search for gold. 


“Will he escape from the clutches of Rhinestone Fred and Goldust Gertie and return to his sweetheart? You’ll have to come to the show to find out,”producer Jeannine Colesaid.


There’s even a side love story about Widow Proudheart, Persephone’s mother, and bartender Alaska Al. 


The show opens on Friday, Feb. 15 and performances continue Friday and Saturday evenings through Saturday, March 2.
