Fave Five | September 20 – 30

From local theater and museum exhibits to outdoor concerts and wine tasting, there is so much to see, do, taste and experience in Santa Maria Valley. Every week, we’ll continue to provide you with 5 great events happening in the Santa Maria Valley.

Scary Poppins

September 20 @ 7:00 pm – November 11 @ 6:00 pm
Great American Melodrama
1863 Front St.
Oceano, CA 93445

The Melodrama favorite returns! Young Jack and Jill Peabody live in Victorian London with their widowed father, a nutty inventor with little time to pay attention to his children. But when the children write to their favorite Super Nanny, they get more than they bargained for — instead of Mary Poppins they end up with her bizarre twin sister, Scary Poppins. And when an evil Russian ambassador shows up desperate to get his hands on one of Professor Peabody’s inventions, it’s up to Scary Poppins to save the day. Full of hilarious song satires and pop culture references, this show is a “practically perfect” parody for the whole family.
