Sneak Peek

Now Playing at Gaslight Melodrama

This year, the fun continues with all the joy and merriment you've come to know from The Gaslight Melodrama.

This year's extravaganza features the brand new melodrama, "Santa's On His Way", which follows the Holiday family as they try to save their family cabin from the evil scrooge, Mrs. Donaghy. With a little help from Santa Claus and the Spirit of Christmas, they just might turn things around. And as always, this will be followed by one of Warren Dobson's always entertaining holiday vaudeville revues, "Christmas In Arkansas." Join us for this Bakersfield family tradition that has been entertaining audiences for over fourteen years!  Merry Christmas!

Performance Reviews

"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."
- Sheri G., Stockton, CA

"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!"
