“Classic fun...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Boo, hiss, Yay!!! The audience participates in the show. The actors double as the greeters and servers during intermission. It's definitely worth taking the family for this one-of-a-kind experience.

“Old Fashion Good Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

If you plan a visit to Oceano stop in and see the Melodrama and Vauderville show. It's something the entire family will enjoy and fun for all ages. Had a good time hissing, booing and cheering. Saw lots of smiles on the way out.

“FANTASTIC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

After much cajoling, I convinced my 13-year-old son to go to a play with me. It was fantastic! The play was super fun and he loved the booing and hissing for the bad guys. The seating is fun and the place is small enough that you can see from everywhere. The food is so-so but fun so who cares. Will definitely return!

“Never a disappointment--great for family and friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Great for everyone. We have always been thoroughly entertained. We love that the actors do everything, including the concession during the 2 intermissions! But a dollar in the tip ajar and they all sing a verse or two for you. What could be more fun?

“Schlocky fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

It's exactly what you'd expect. The shows are fun and the food is actually pretty good for fast food. The quality of the acting is also much better than one often sees as melodramas. One tip--if you know you're going, get your tickets early. Where you sit really effects the show. Seats on the floor can be a bit too close together, unless you're on an aisle.
