We watched a play here during out stay in Pismo Beach. We saw The Holiday Extravaganza. I was absolutely impressed with the whole crew and what a great production they put together. We really enjoyed ourselves and would absolutely love to go back and see a play when we are back in the area.

My wife and I have been season ticket holders for the past 3 years. We have loved each and every performance throughout the year. We highly recommend the Melodrama!

You can't go wrong visiting the "Great American Melodrama" in Oceano, Ca.and seeing any of their shows. Space is tight as every seat is always taken. Visit soon and find a show for you while you're in town. Their Christmas show is always a treat for the whole family

Wow! Every time I have been to the Melodrama I have always been highly impressed by the high caliber of professionalism of the shows. It is an amazing and unique experience as it has an old school vaudeville style. It is amazing live theater and the actors also tend bar and snack stand during intermission, in character! Bring the whole... More

We went to see Trudy and the Beast and as usual had a fantastic time. The 8 person cast did a fantastic job and they also man the snack bar! So much fun. The beer and food is reasonably priced and a treat to be able to do both.

I have seen several different shows at the Melodrama and I have enjoyed all of them. A night at the Melodrama is sure to be full of laughs and good memories. You can expect a wonderful, light hearted production that might even have some local humor thrown in. My most recent visit was with my wife and our friends. This... More

You can have a great time in this dinner-theatre in a kind of out-of-the way location. As the name implies there is action, comedy, singing and dance performances by a group of very talented actors. Three shows I have attended were SRO! The shows change every couple of months and there is a Holiday show at the end of the... More

Celebrated my sister's birthday with family & friends. The discription of "Under the Boardwalk" seemed more for a child to enjoy BUT I was very surprised how really funny it was! We all laughed so hard throughout I got a sore throat! The cast was excellent and two really stood out. Emily Chatterson played a seagull and her personality came... More
