Located in Oceano, Calif., just 3 miles south of Pismo Beach, the Great American Melodrama & Vaudeville opened its doors in the summer of 1975 and has been operating year round since 1976.
The Melodrama is fun for all ages, producing top-notch musicals, comedies, and melodramas in a lively cabaret setting at affordable prices!
When guests arrive, they’re ushered to their seats by the actors as live, honky-tonk-style piano music plays. Our snack bar is open prior to the show and during intermissions. The actors performing in the show sing and serve stadium-style fare such as soda, beer, wine, nachos, hot dogs, and popcorn.
Audience members are encouraged to cheer the hero and boo the villain throughout the show. All in all, it’s a totally unique and hilarious experience!
