Performance dates are Nov.16 through 19 at Riverhead High School. “Paint Your Wagon” tells the story of the 1848 California Gold Rush and the many who headed west hoping to strike it rich. The Lerner and Loewe score features such classic songs as “They Call the Wind Mariah,” “I Talk to the Trees” and “Wand’rin’ Star.”  The show has roles for many men of all ages to play gold miners and a chorus of dance hall girls and three women (a daughter aged 16-25, and two wives, aged 20s-40s). Bring music for a song from a classic Broadway musical; an accompanist will be provided. All should also be prepared to learn a dance combination. There will be readings from the script.
