The GOLD-DIGGERS, Inc. was established October 16, 1976 as a non-profit organization for the purpose of writing, producing and performing in a theatrical production each year to support charity. In the spring of each year the Gold-Diggers, Inc. present their yearly musical extravaganza at the beautiful Gusman Center for the Performing Arts in Downtown Miami. This year’s show is Rock the Stages and will be held at the Banyans Bowl at Pinecrest Gardens on April 20 & 21. The show is now the largest theatrical production in the Miami area.

The Gold-Diggers come from a broad spectrum of backgrounds, age groups, vocations and performing experience. Our volunteers spend countless hours rehearsing, building scenery, making costumes and selling tickets. Our show is seen by over five thousand audience members each year.
The Gold-Diggers, Inc. was founded by seven women in the Miami area whose love of theater inspired them to “put on a show” a la the Mickey Rooney/Judy Garland musicals of the past. They recruited members, and in May of 1977 presented their first production. Since that time, the shows have extended to four performances and to date The Gold-Diggers have raised over one million dollars for charities. The primary charity is the Leukemia Society with other charities also the beneficiary of funds (see charities page).
The result has been over 30 wonderful years of shows, friendships and fun. The eclectic nature of the group is the key, and the love of theater is what keeps them coming back for more.
