The popular and historic Golden Chain Theatre is performing a melodrama at the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad. Bonnie Belle’s Best Bloomers: A melodrama complete with hero, heroine, and villain.
The dastardly villain is viscously hunting for the gold mine at everyone’s expense. The well hidden gold mine is miraculously discovered and the hero again saves the maiden in distress and his town.This entertainment relates directly to the era of gold mines, coal mines, and Lincoln’s signing of the Yosemite Grant Act in 1864.
The Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad is the restored railroad used for the Madera Sugar Pine‘s logging trains during the turn of the 20th century. It is located just south of the south gate to Yosemite National Park.
Mary “LuLu” Finley, Director of Bonnie Belle’s Best Bloomers, says, “This is one of the cast's and her favorite events of the year. We all love going back in time with our local railroad and it is always a pleasure working with their staff. We appreciate the relationship we’ve had for many years, and they’ve even gone so far as to redesign and strengthen our small stage. It’s fun to perform in such a beautiful location and the audience always has a great time.”
