As usual the production, which this time was "Scary Poppins" was outstanding. The actors were great and the writing of this parody of "Mary Poppins" was awesome. We took friends that had never been to TGAM before and they truly enjoyed it.

We go to the Melodrama in Bakersfield all the time and this show was twice as funny as any we’ve seen. Eb Madson had me laughing so hard my belly hurt. He should be on Studio C.

Haven't been for a few years, so did Mother's Day, and our three generations party of 8 all had a good time. The food seems to have added a few more options, including a veggie wrap, salad and the baked potato which the vegetarians in...More
