A fun filled night of musical comedy! Boo the Villain and Cheer the Hero! Come join us for an evening that begins with our three course meal and the Melodrama immediately following (audience participation is strongly encouraged). After the melodrama, a foot-stomping sing-along and vaudeville style olio full of song, dance and comedy continues the fun throughout the evening!

Always enjoyed the melodramas here over the years. Probably not good for kids as they may be bored. But fun times for older adults for sure!

Having fun. Dinner was enjoyable. It was a standard meal, nothing spectacular, but lots of food. The point is to come and enjoy spending time with people. The melodrama and sing-a-lob was fun. The atmosphere was good in the old Colorado structure. Fun night so...More

The show was fine and the actors were...fine. It wasn't a spectacle by any means. The content was typical and lackluster, and I'm not sure it would hold the attention of anyone but senior citizens who eat bran for breakfast, oatmeal for lunch, and unseasoned...More

We have started a family tradition on our holidays - make sure we visit and support the local theatres. And so, we were looking forward to a reasonable dinner followed by a fun evening show. Sadly, this was a fail on both accounts. The pre-theatre...More

This was a fun night with good food, but we were disappointed in the acting and singing during the show. The Olio was the best part and they sang somewhat better. I love Melodramas, but this one was not very good.

Do you have shows in August on a Sunday afternoon? I have tried for 2 years now to get a reservation on a Sunday, and it is always cancelled at the last minute.

The Melodrama is closed on Sunday & Monday. They take reservations Tuesday-Saturday evenings.
