Sneak Peek

Now Playing at Gaslight Melodrama

When it’s only three days until the grand reopening of the most majestic place in town, things can sometimes get a little crazy.  Blaine Hightower has recently inherited The Fox Theatre.  This comes as a great shock to the Fox staff.  He's also cancelled the Buck Owens tribute band that was going to perform on opening night and he's hired in their place, The Three Divas!  The biggest act to hit Broadway since The Blue Man Group.  Unbeknownst to anyone, Blaine has other plans in store and it's up to everybody to stop him before it's too late.  Will the caterers arrive on time?  Will the paint in the grand lobby be dry by the time the doors open?  Will the general manager ever find out where everybody is?  Will the crowds want to come back?  Will The Fox Theatre survive opening night and live to tell?  Find out the answers to these questions and more in this exciting and hilarious, brand-new melodrama!

"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!"
