Please note that, due to camp scheduling logistics, the 2017 melodrama will take place one week AFTER the Bohemia Mining Days Festival. It will return to the usual time during the Festival in 2018.

This world premiere melodrama features youth actors from Cottage Theatre’s summer Melodrama Camp, plenty of booing and hissing at the villains, and an old-fashioned audience sing-along. Tickets $7 (all ages) More info at

Written by Keith Kessler Directed by Janet Rust Music Direction by Catricia Mayhue

Each July, Cottage Theatre produces a family-friendly original melodrama, the likes of which you'll not find on any other stage. The script, lovingly written especially for us by Cottage Grove playwright Keith Kessler, features roles for the 25 or so youth participants of CT’s Summer Music Camp.

These young actors (ages 12 through 14), accomplish in two weeks what it takes an average adult cast eight to ten weeks to master: they go from auditions through dress rehearsals to present three public performances of a fully-staged production, complete with music and choreography.

The show begins with several music and dance numbers that showcase our young performers. After that, the audience warms up with an old-fashioned sing-along and plenty of booing and hissing practice in time for the main event. This is a great show for families of all ages.
