Melodrama unveils new season lineup

By Rebecca Rose

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).

The Melodrama is located at 863 Front St., Oceano. For more information, including dates and times of upcoming shows, visit them online at or call (805) 489-2499.
