A Story of Perseverance Amidst Shattered Dreams
Rose is a young Mexican migrant, abandoned and lost in turbulent 1930s California. She clings to Margaret Thomas, a Kansas farmwife displaced by the Dust Bowl. Together, they grieve a lost family and search for home and healing in the midst of unrelenting hardships. Could John Bollen, the generous wheat farmer down the road, be a savior for them both? A powerful journey of the heart unfolds for three people who find their lives intertwined, each desperate to heal the past and embrace a new future.
“This is a classic musical that delicately and intelligently weaves a timeless story within a historical era. It's reinforced by a beautiful score, and it revolves around a cast of well-defined characters that work through racial tensions, death, loyalty, and new beginnings. This impressive effort is a definite crowd-pleaser!”
“Horizons of Gold is a beautifully written story: well-shaped dialogue, excellent lyrics and soaring lush melodies enhanced with professional quality orchestrations. The beautiful moments of this piece will leave your heart overflowing.”
