"Rollin' In Dough in Mistletoe," a Christmas melodrama by Marietta Slater, will be performed at the Golden Chain Theatre this Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m.
The show includes more than 13 dance numbers by children, tots, teens, Santa's elves, and the Grub Gulch Grannies, along with dancing cows, soldiers, elves, toys, a magic dragon, antique dolls and a dancing donkey.
The show includes a short melodrama. It's Christmas Eve in Mistletoe, but everyone is far from jolly. Rolland N. Dough, the villain, is foreclosing on the entire town, which has everybody dreaming of a black Christmas.
Will the townspeople be out in the cold, "walkin' in a winter wonderland?" Will the most wicked, the most dastardly, the most evil, the most despicable villain of all time finally win out this time?
If only the town could find the "five golden rings" hidden near Jingle Bell Rock they'd have enough money to pay off their loans and save the town. Their fate rests in the hands of Randolph the Bowlegged Cowboy.
Directed and choreographed by Patti Law Poggi, the play features young actors, unique, colorful costumes and promises to provide fun entertainment for the entire family.
Tickets are $12 general admission, $10 seniors (55+), $8 students, and $6 for children.
The Golden Chain Theatre is located on Highway 41, two miles North of Oakhurst.
