Sneak Peek

Now Playing at Gaslight Melodrama

The Bakersfield Melodrama, on China Grade Loop in Oildale, is celebrating the opening of their 100th show!

The only thing standing in their way is the new, evil landlord, Simon D. Slugworth. He’s sick of seeing all the smiling faces usher out of the doors every weekend. According to Slugworth, “All this joy and happiness has got to go!” So, it’s up to the cast and crew to find a new venue before the curtain rises or else The Melodrama will leave Bakersfield forever! Will they find it in Rosedale? Who knows? But, this brand-new melodrama, which pays tribute to Bakersfield’s 35 year history of melodrama theatre is sure to be fun for the whole family!

Performance Reviews

Critics & Guests

"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!"
- Brian O., Bakersfield, CA

"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!"
- Jennifer W., Bakersfield, CA
