As entertainment line-ups go, it’s a big one at the Historic Homestake Opera House in Lead. Built in 1914, the Homestake Opera House was constructed as a gift to the community through the patronage of Phoebe Apperson Hearst, widow of George Hearst of the Homestake Gold Mining Company, and who championed the arts and culture in the gold mining town.
From partying like it’s 1914 to solid country gold, the Opera House has announced its full season that runs through next spring, says executive director, Thomas Golden.
“We start out our season Sat., Sept. 11 with stand-up comedy and the “Scared Scriptless Improv Show” produced by Seraphim Theatrical Entertainment,” says Golden. “It’s a really great show with a cast who will make you laugh until you cry with their witty one-liners, accidental plot twists, and genuine surprise when they use lines from the audience.”
That’s followed by “Piano Ponderings with Kathryn Farruggia: The Romantic Piano” on the Homestake Opera stage Sun., Sept. 26 at 2pm. This program features works from the great romantic piano composers: Rachmaninoff, Liszt, Chopin, Schumann, Spanish composer Lecuono, and others.
