The Front Porch Players of Rosemount are excited to announce an upcoming Melodrama to be performed during our annual Art Blast!

We will be presenting “Mine, All Mine or From Ghost Town to Kaboom Town,” written by Denise K. Buhr. Performance date is Tuesday, June 20, 7:30 pm at the Rosemount Central Park Amphitheater. 

Roles are available for 3 males and 3 females, plus one either, ages 20-60. Rehearsals will be June 13, 17 and 18, 5-8 pm. Call Director Keith Reed with questions: 651-261-1954.

Show synopsis: There’s silver in them thar hills, but landowner Trillby Sterling doesn’t know it. She’s only concerned about digging a new well in her cow pasture as she waits for her true love, Tom, to return with the cows. Meanwhile, a stranger in town shows an unusual interest in her pasture. Humboldt Bilgewater Foggerty says he’s with the government. He also claims that Trillby’s land is no good for cows and must be deeded over to the government. (That is, to him.) General store owner AnnieSue, her silent partner Espy, and the Simpson sisters, who like to stir things up with their gossip, all want to help Trillby, but find themselves shoved aside. It takes another stranger (who mysteriously looks just like Tom!) to save the day in a potentially explosive ending.
