is slated for Saturday, August 19, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon...

"Just think of Seinfeld set to music" 

This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as
"the relationship". This hilarious musical revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen
on their face at the portal of romance and to those to ever have dared to ask..." what are you doing Saturday night?"
Directed by Jennifer Piccolotti. Rated PG-13

Golden Chain Theatre has been featuring live theatre and melodrama performances since 1965.  
With its rich history and dedicated performers, it's a must-see attraction during
your Yosemite vacation or when visiting the Oakhurst area.

Located 42130 Highway 41, Oakhurst - Half mile south of the Bass Lake turnoff - opposite the Hounds Tooth Inn.
