Starlight Theatre Productions return to Tyne Theatre & Opera House in 2017 with the wonderful musical comedy Paint Your Wagon!
Set in 1850’s California during the gold rush, the story begins with Jennifer, Ben Rumson’s teenage daughter, discovering gold. News travels fast and prospectors from all around rush to Rumson Creek to make their fortune.
Being the only female in town Jennifer has to deal with many frustrated gold miners, but eventually strikes up a close friendship with a Mexican called Julio.
Jacob, a middle aged Mormon arrives at Rumson Creek and is only allowed to stay on the condition he auctions one of his two wives, after some deliberation he agrees and Elizabeth is sold to Ben.
Jake a miner makes his money and builds a Music Hall and consequently sends for his wife Cherry. With her she brings wagon loads of fandangos – much to the men’s delight. The gold begins to run out and slowly the men pack up and move on.
A musical feel-good comedy with lots of fabulous musical numbers and energy.
