Sneak Peek

Now Playing at Gaslight Melodrama

When Bakersfield's historic, "Alley Cat", finds itself on hard times, desperate bartender, Bubba, is searching his brain, trying to come up with a solution to his misery.  Unbeknownst to him, his second-in-command, Clyde, has hired long-past-her-prime music super-star (and Bubba's former love-of-a-lifetime), Jolene Taylor, to perform on the Alley Cat stage, in hopes of returning the old watering hole to its former glory.  This does not sit well with Bubba and soon all of their old (and brand new) troubles start to bubble up.  Making matters worse is evil land developer, Big Boss Teague, who is determined to purchase The Alley Cat and sell off the land to the newly reformed High Speed Rail Commission.  Will Jolene's voice return in time to save the bar?  Will her and Bubba finally rekindle their romance?  Will Big Boss Teague succeed in his evil plans?  With a colorful cast of characters and a rip-roaring soundtrack, this is sure to be one the whole family will enjoy.

"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!"
