Great American Melodrama, Oceano , CA, 93445

March 14 – April 28 ​Two cops. Three crooks. Eight doors. Go! In a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor meets with his female accountant. In the next room, two cops wait to catch the meeting on video. But there’s some confusion as to who’s in which room, who’s taken the money, and who’s hired the Scottish hit man with anger issues. This laugh-a-minute farce will leave you in stitches. Rated PG Show Times, Dates, and Tickets may be found HERE
