Sneak Peek

Now Playing at Gaslight Melodrama

What was supposed to be a three hour tour turns into a shipwreck on a deserted island. Sound familiar? Well, it should, because this hilarious musical comedy is inspired by one of the classics of early television sitcoms. Watch as Milligan, the skipper too, the millionaire and his wife, the movie star, and the rest try to save themselves from the evil powers of a mad scientist who is bent on making the island exclusively hers.

This original melodrama was first produced on The Gaslight stage ten years ago.  And the time felt right to bring it back around.  With plenty of wacky characters and music to tap your feet to, this is one show the entire family will love!

"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."

"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."

"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!"
