Mike is a Central Coast native who currently calls one of the Five Cities his home. Mr. Fiore is a favorite here at the Melodrama. You all may remember him from Melodrama shows such as: 'Frankenstein’s Bride', 'The Karaoke Kid', a whole boot full of 'Holiday Extravaganzas' and a whole bushel full of other shows. You may have also seen Mike perform with other theatres such as: SLO Repertory Theatre, PCPA and Sierra Repertory Theatre. Mike is a proud graduate of PCPA and pleased to be returning to the Melodrama Stage.

Ben last performed at the Melodrama in Musky Love a year ago. In the last year Ben started working toward an MFA in playwriting at Hollins Univeristy, and he and his wife had a fourth baby! (All girls!) It's all been wonderful and very fulfilling, but do you know what he didn't get to do while he was gone? Sing harmonies in a Cher medley. It's great to be back! Love to Barbara, without whom it would neither be possible nor worth it.
