a melodrama by Rita Baker
Remount of a play first produced by Petrolia Players (a precursor to Petrolia Community Theatre) in March 1976

Perils at Petrolia

Based around an oil well, this happily-ever-after, old-fashioned melodrama features heroines and villains.

Poor plotting of the nearly broke, Sir Sidney Slick, who is told by the Gypsy that Henry Fairburn's oil well is about to 'come in' and make the owner very rich leads to twists and turns.

Slick, hoping to get rich quick with very little effort, tries to buy the well, but Fairburn won't sell. Slick is not one to let a little word like "no" stand in between him and wealth. He won't let a little thing like murder stand in his way.

Several love interests are threaded through the story. Emmeline falls in love with Charles, but her mother Florence, thinks she can do better.

Maud hopes for the affections of oil man Eureka, but he hasn't grasped the concept of courting, let alone, marriage!

Music, mayhem and a heroine tied to the tracks... no wait, this is Petrolia and she is tied to an oil well.

Who will save her before the well blows up?
