Gold Fever Follies
EntertainmentCommunity & Non-Profit Organizations
In 1987, a small group of theater enthusiasts, headed by Ray Furlotte, started a musical review based on Rossland history. The show was embellished with local lore, old time tunes and real Cancan dancers from the Boomtown Garter Girls. Three decades later, the Rossland Gold Fever Follies, headed by local resident and current Follies President Lisa Henderson, are still going strong with original stories from Rossland’s rich gold mining history. While artistic license is often used, many of the characters are based on real people from Rossland’s past. Such characters have included Judge Begbie, Father Pat, the Hunter Brothers, Olas Jeldness, Big John Kirkup and a whole host of others.
The Gold Fever Follies offers a new family-friendly musical comedy every summer with cancan dancing, original music and exciting characters based on Rossland’s gold rush days of the late 1890s.
