Will the bad guys finally win?Who knows, but let's not forget about the pirates. Join us for this brand new, hilarious romp through the world of "Melodrama".

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!"
