It’s the most wonderful time of the year with our Holiday Extravaganza! See Scrooge find his Christmas spirit in a heart-warming tale of holiday magic, laugh until your sides ache at the NEW Fractured Fairytale Opera, and celebrate the music of the season in our Holiday Vaudeville Review. Our Holiday triple bill is a very special family tradition designed to bring a year’s worth of smiles and laughter to you and your loved ones in a great musical and theatrical experience!




Share the gift of the Melodrama with family and friends!




The Great American Melodrama is fun for all ages, producing top-notch musicals, comedies, and melodramas in a lively cabaret setting at prices affordable for the whole family. The Melodrama provides a unique live theatre experience in which costumed actors usher guests to their seats, take orders at the snack bar, and serve grub in addition to performing.

Some fans have called it a cross between a Saturday Night Live and Disneyland. And every show is followed by a vaudeville revue packed with song, dance, and comedy, so you get two shows for the price of one!

Between acts, the snack bar serves hot dogs, popcorn, desserts, beer, wine, and more. Be sure to leave a tip for the actors serving your fare―they’ll sing you a mini-rendition of a popular song in gratitude!



No visit to the Melodrama is complete without a trip—or two—to our snack bar! Stop by before the show and during intermissions to get a drink, snack, or full meal. We’re famous for our popcorn, baked potatoes, and the best jumbo hot dogs around! Plus, you might recognize the friendly faces serving the food and singing to you. Unlike any other theater around, our snack bar is staffed by our hard-working actors!



Pismo Beach’s gorgeous setting means that there are all sorts of ways to connect to nature. Saddle up for horseback through the dunes just south of town and all the way to the surf on guided outings with Pacific Dunes Riding Ranch. Tours with Central Coast Kayaks take paddlers into dramatic sea caves tucked into the craggy coastline north of downtown. Or, rent a “dune buggy” or an ATV to ride the dunes at Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area.

From the tiniest critter to the grandest of beasts, everyone's buzzing with excitement over this year's whimsical fractured fairytale operetta "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." The creative genius behind it all is none other than the amazing TGAM veteran, Jordan Richardson. Brace yourself for an out-of-this-world adventure that'll make your heart race and your imagination soar!

Such a great central coast tradition!

Hey there, generous soul! We're spreading the love by teaming up with 5 Cities Homeless Coalition for their holiday toy drive. Bring in a shiny, new, unwrapped toy to the show, and we'll give you a free large popcorn and a pitcher of soda as a thank you! Remember, sharing is caring! ... See MoreSee Less
