Sneak Peek

Now Playing at Gaslight Melodrama

It’s Christmas Eve, the most exciting and highly anticipated night of the year.  Families and children of all ages eagerly await what’s in store from Santa Claus.  But, when the annual Live Christmas Eve Extravaganza radio broadcast is in threat of being shut down, it’s up to Santa's Elves to spring into action to save one of Bakersfield's most beloved Christmas traditions.  Will they do it in time?  Will the lowly radio producer and his assistant make it through the broadcast?   Will the writer ever get over his Christmas Stress Syndrome?  And most importantly, will they get any help from a very special visitor?   With a colorful cast of characters and an abundance of joy and cheer, this is one Christmas show your family won't want to miss.

"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!"
