Professional regional theater company, Placer Repertory Theater, presents Ghosts of Placer County with an all-professional cast on the Oakmont mainstage in Roseville – Sept 30 thru Oct 8.
“The stories we tell say a great deal about who we are,” says the formidable yet loveable character 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 in Placer County.
This play could be said to be about ghostly echoes, or about how individual and community history haunts us, and how we haunt our history to help define ourselves. While technically a drama, this play is full of humor and charm as we meet the loveable but dysfunctional characters who will steal your heart as they depict common triumphs and frailties.
COME JOIN US AND PLAY A PART IN PLACER COUNTY HISTORY IN THE MAKING!
AWARD WINNING: 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: This mainstage world premiere of Ghosts of Placer County is an historic event for Placer County and for Placer Repertory Theater. This production is not only Placer Rep’s first multi-week mainstage world premiere, but also the first professional production for and by area residents, and Placer County’s first opportunity to support its own professional regional theater company on a mainstage.
Together we are building a legacy! Come and see the beauty of the history and people of Placer County. This new work has poignancy that Placer Rep hopes will make you all Placer County Proud!
CREDITS: This work was collaboratively sourced through friendships, partnerships and communications with and/or live or online visits to civic and cultural groups, historic areas and facilities countywide.

This show is appropriate for all ages that have the attention span to see a 90-minute event. Ages 7 or 8 to 140. 🙂 Ages 11 or 12 and up will definitely understand the group dynamics and humor.
Parents: There is one minor cussword (sh*t) used two times. A few “scary” ghost and history stories which may include mentioning of violence are told – but are brief and not graphically depicted.
