Sneak Peek

Now Playing at Gaslight Melodrama

Edna, Opal and Pearl, The Golden Girls of the Bakersfield fashion world, are the owner's of "Oleander's Finest", the last of the high-end clothing stores catering to a very specific clientele...little old ladies. If they don't get the $50,000 they need to pay off their increasing debt, they'll have to close up shop for good. Trouble starts to brew when the evil Duttenheimer brother's, wanting to break into the Bakersfield fashion elite, arrive with a plan to sabotage the girls and swindle them out of their shop. Will the ladies fall for their evil scheme? Will Opal be able to control her cougarish ways? Will the girls get help from an unsuspecting voice beyond the stage? You'll have to see it to believe 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!"
