GRAVE MISTAKES

JANUARY 26- MARCH 16, 2024

Meet Ray, a love-struck housemate who just might have a thing for Molly, another housemate, who's got a novel to write. But hold the presses: they have to battle a landlord and a ghost hunter who want to kick them out and transform their home into a spooky, tourist destination. Love and the afterlife never got this funny or tangled up!

ABOUT THE MELODRAMA

MAKING MERRIMENT SINCE 1975

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!

DINE WITH US

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!

THINGS TO DO IN PISMO BEACH

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.
