We were visiting family in Santa Maria and they took us here. They have been several times and love it. We could definitely see why they go often and take visiting family members. The melodrama is very entertaining. The actors were great and funny. We saw Churning Butter into Gold. The little bits where the actors talk to the audience... More

I have been to the Great American Melodrama in Oceano many times before but this was my first time treating my dad to a show. We told him about the ambiance, the food service, the seating and the atmosphere, in general. He was excited to attend his first show. Sadly, I treated him to "The Foreigner". I won't spoil it...

We have watched 3 plays here now and it's always a good time! I like brining out of town guests here as well because it is so unexpected and the small theatre setting makes the experience so charming and personal. The crew and cast members are all so talented and give it their all with each performance! They not only... More

What fun! An unexpected treasure nestled in sleepy, little Oceana. Saw "The Foreigner" with a group of 20 friends on a Sunday night. The house was full. Don't be late, especially if you want to order food and drinks. They are punctual, which is great since the actors run the concession stand.

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
