The musical GOLD is based on the true story of the pioneering prospectors, merchants, prostitutes and dance hall girls from all over America who showed great determination and courage by leaving their comfortable homes to overcome monumental obstacles to reach the frozen gold fields of the Klondike in 1897.

It’s the story of the adventures, greed, passion and despair of these ordinary people who risked everything to make their fortunes. Through their hardships however, they found humanity, friendship and love.

GOLD features strong leading characters based on people from that time, dancing Mounties in their striking red uniforms, sexy dance hall girls and mud- wrestling women!
