Mainstage World Premiere of a new play produced by Placer Repertory Theater
About this Event

"The stories we tell say a great deal about who we are," says the formidable yet loveable Dr. Dessa Dagmar.

This is the story of 30 years in the life of Dr. Dagmar and her daughter Aubrey, or the story of many moments from nearly 200 years of history taking place on this same land in Placer County.

This play could be said to be about ghostly echoes. The playwright, T.S. Forsyth, sums up the play this way: The play is about how individual and community history haunts us, and how we haunt our history to help define ourselves. Ultimately, it is about perspective and self-definition. "But that sounds pensive, and this is an active, quick-moving drama with a great deal of charm and humor," says the playwright.


AWARDS: This new play, Ghosts of Placer County, has already won a number of awards. It is supported, in part, by Armrod Charitable Foundation, the Arts Council of Placer County and the Gloria Burt Sacramento Region Arts Fellowship in Literature.

MAKING HISTORY: The mainstage world premiere of Ghosts of Placer County is an historic event for Placer County and Placer Repertory Theater. This production is

  • the first mainstage world premiere of a drama written for Placer County,
  • the first professional theatrical production that is set in Placer County and shares Placer County history
  • the first professional production performed by a professional resident theater company that serves all of Placer County.
  • the first multi-week mainstage world premiere for Placer Repertory Theater.

Together we are building a legacy!

Come and see the beauty of the history and people of Placer County, meet the loveable but dysfunctional characters who will steal your heart as they depict common human triumphs and frailties. This new work has poignancy that Placer Rep hopes will make you all Placer County Proud!
