Oceano's Melodrama to present Scary Poppins

By Rebecca Rose

The Great American Melodrama is set to present Scary Poppins, a musical spoof recounting the story of Jack and Jill Peabody and their nanny, Mary Poppins' twin sister, Scary.

Jack and Jill (played by Ben Abbott and Annali Fuchs-Wackowski, respectively), live with their widowed father in London. Professor Peabody (Jeff Salsbury), an inventor who spends little time with his children, hires Scary Poppins as their nanny, a frightening creature with mind control powers and more. Scary Poppins is directed and choreographed by Eric Holt and written by Ben Millet. The production also includes the Halloween Party Vaudeville Revue, a holiday-themed costume party with original and parody songs. 

The Halloween show runs from Sept. 20 through Nov. 11. The theater is located at 1863 Front St., Oceano. Tickets are $21 to $28. For more information or to buy tickets, visit or call (805) 489-2499.
