California's state motto, not to mention its northernmost city, is Eureka! -- a celebratory cry uttered by the 1849 pioneers who first discovered gold in the Golden State. Literally, it means, "I've found it." Now "Eureka!" is the name of a theatrical event, South Coast Repertory's annual Education Touring Production, making the rounds of local schools to teach youngsters about the watershed era in their state's history. "Eureka!" traces the early days that follow the discovery of the first gold nugget in the state, seen with wide-eyed wonder by a young man named Martin Wimmer as he shares the adventures of James Marshall, the prospector who discovered that first nugget, and other famous people from the Gold Rush days.
