Oceano's Great American Melodrama announced its 2019 season lineup, which includes seven productions across the year.

Starting on Jan. 24, the Melodrama will kick off the new year with a production of Steel Magnolias, the classic play that depicts the lives of a group of closely bonded Southern women. Plays also include comedies such as Unnecessary Farce, a comedy involving a sting on a corrupt mayor; Treasure Island, a spoof on the Robert Louis Stevenson classic; Pappa Pia!, the Melodrama's own spin on Mamma Mia!; How the West Was Really Won; Drac in the Saddle Again; and the troupe's annual Holiday Extravaganza, (which is currently running through Dec. 31).
