Sneak Peek

Now Playing at Gaslight Melodrama

Pumpkin Center... A magical land ruled by the great and powerful, King Teddy Tyrone Taft.  He loves nothing more than his daughter, Tiffany.  But, when he marries the villainous Margo Merced, he becomes blinded by her evil ways and allows Margo to turn poor Tiffany into her servant.  When King Teddy goes mysteriously missing, Margo assumes the throne and appoints her own daughter, Mildred, to the position of Princess.  It's up to Tiffany's fairy Godmother, Buttercup Buttonwillow,  and Prince Harry Hanford to help her find her father and restore order to the land, before the final shoe drops.  This brand new, musical melodrama is one every parent, grandparent, child and child at heart will enjoy.

"Great fun, talented cast. Went with two other couples on a Saturday night. Place was packed, so clearly a popular destination. The performance was a hoot, great singing, hilarious characterizations, really fun energy in the cast and audience."

"This is a must see whatever is Showing! Been going since 1997! If you want the Best Live Entertainment Ever, Just Go, Seriously Just Go! The Best! Love it!"

"Excellent theater show where you laugh until your cheeks hurt. Talented actors who really bring the show alive making you feel as though you are part of it with the booing of villains and cheering of heroes."
- Koki & Kane S., Lake Stevens, WA

"Always charming and fun. They get the entire audience involved. This is sufficiently delightful that we plan a weekend around it, renting a room for the night and exploring Bakersfield the next day."
Eva R., Northridge, CA

"Every time I go to the Gaslight Melodrama, it's always a great time! The local actors are amazing. I always enjoy the story line of each of the plays. I would suggest anyone to take their spouse or significant other for a date night. You won't regret it!"
