Don't miss this fun theater experience. The troop always gives you a fun filled and entertaining show. The venue is fun, the show is fun and the actors are great, especially Jeff Salsbury who should probably be on Broadway! Go and enjoy the show.

It's always a good time at the Melodrama, this play is hilarious! The cast is great, the songs are easily recognized with new lyrics. These are all hard working actors that hake for a fun evening. Highly recommended.

I glanced at brochures in the hotel lobby and passed over the "Melodrama" advertisement, dismissing it as being anything significant. But during our time in the Pismo Beach area a friend asked us if we had seen the recent Melodrama presentation. After bringing it to...More
