The secret is out! Gold in the Hills is listed in a Readers' Southern Secrets feature in the September 2010 issue of Southern Living magazine, and on their web site.

Fun for the whole family. Sing the old songs! Cheer the hero! Boo the villain! Presented yearly since 1936, Gold in the Hills features a relentless hero, a winsome heroine, a ruthless villain, beautiful can-can dancers, and the wilder side of city life in the infamous New York Bowery.

Gold in the Hills, the Guinness Book of World Records' longest-running show, is having another exciting season in March and July 2010, with performances Friday and Saturday nights starting at 7:30 pm. We offer open seating, no reservations required, and always plenty of seats. Click here for information about ticket prices.

Become a part of history when you witness the 75th season of the Guinness Book of World Records' continuously-longest running melodrama!
... who stole John Dalton's gold locket?
... what did Murgatroyd discover in the hills?
... is John Dalton really penniless?
... where DID Lizzie leave her fascinator?
... what is the dead sister's secret?
