Gold Rush Assembly

Four discontented groups - the Forty-Niners, the Wives, the Native Americans and the San Francisco Residents. And just one happy group - The Entrepreneurs. Looks like our Narrator has his work cut out for him again!

A tale of mixed fortunes - fortunately, the tragedy alleviated by plenty of humour along with a great playlist!

Cast of 30 (easily adaptable up or down)

Duration: 10 to 15 minutes not including music suggestions/routines (which could double length of performance)

Sample Text:

Narrator:         Oh my goodness. Where did all that Californian sunshine go?

(Enter Group 1)

Forty-niner 1:  You still here?

Forty-niner 2:  He must have got left behind.

(Enter Group 2)

Wife 1:             Like us!

Forty-niner 3:  (To others in Group 1) Run, boys! Looks like our wives have caught up with us!

(Group 2 bar the way to Group 1 ‘escaping’)

Wife 2:             Nah! We decided it shouldn’t be you having all the fun! We’re coming too!

(Collective groan from Group 1)

Wife 3:             You see, you are not the only ones with hopes around here.

Music 2 Money Money Money – Abba

(Performed by Group 2)

(Group 1 applaud at end of ‘routine’)

Forty-niner 3:  Wow! Seems like we have some talent here!

Forty-niner 4:  Maybe we can cash in on that when we reach our destination.

Forty-niner 5: Yeah! I’ve heard there’s plenty of opportunities in San Francisco!

Forty-niner 6:  Is that where we’re going?

Forty-niner 7:  (Holding up map) Well, it looks close enough to where all that gold is supposed to be!

Forty-niner 8:  So. What are we waiting for?

Forty-niner 1:  Come on, everyone! Let’s go find that gold!

(Exit Groups 1 and 2, cheering loudly)

Narrator:         Wow! Amazing how quickly the mood can change around here! One minute right down in the doldrums. The next scaling the heights of delight!

(Enter Group 4, muttering and scowling)

Narrator:         (To audience) Oh oh! Something tells me that moodometer is about to take another plunge for the worst!

(Turning to Group 4)

                        Hi guys! Something not quite right in your neck of the woods? San Francisco, I believe?

S.F. Resident 1:           Well, I wonder how happy you’d be if your neighbourhood was suddenly invaded

Narrator:         (Interrupting) Oh you mean by those ‘Forty-niners’?
