Already dreaming of turkey and stuffing? Family gatherings? Curling up by the fire and bingeing on football or the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade?


Ahhh, traditions. With the magical holiday season nipping at our heels, perhaps it’s time to create a new tradition.


Don’t grab those containers filled with your family’s heirloom china or holiday decorations from storage just yet …


How ‘bout ringing in the season with some good old-fashioned, toe-tappin’ fun, Central Coast-style! A beloved, family-favorite tradition on our gorgeous coast is tucked away in the town of Oceano. The town may be small, but the reputation of The Great American Melodrama is mighty.


With the most wonderful time of year upon us, The Great American Melodrama presents its annual, heartwarming Holiday Extravaganza, mixing a bit of sentimentality with a whole lot of laughter! Join in the fun as Scrooge discovers his Christmas spirit. But wait, there’s more. It’s not called an extravaganza for nothing … it’s a triple entertainment whammy, folks! Joining Scrooge’s tale of yuletide magic are the always hilarious Fractured Fairytale Opera followed by a celebration of the season’s timeless music with the Holiday Vaudeville Review.


An experience like no other, the intimate Melodrama has been entertaining children and adults alike year-round since 1976. In fact, the small, wholesome theatre even has its actors playing double-duty, not only performing but also serving you hot dogs, popcorn, nachos, soda, beer, and wine from the snack bar!


Whether you’re four or 104, you’ll fall in love with this holiday treasure. The Holiday Extravaganza runs from November 17th – December 31st. The Great American Melodrama is located at 1863 Front Street in Oceano and can be reached at (805) 489-2499 or at https://americanmelodrama.com.
