The Phantom of the Melodrama
Help unravel the mystery of the Melodrama Ghost at the Great American Melodrama’s spooky and wacky new show, “The Phantom of the Melodrama.” The Great American Melodrama is beloved for its folksy piano tunes, cabaret tables and sawdust-covered floors. Here, professional performers from throughout the United States gather to present top-notch productions of great classic musicals, original plays and Victorian melodramas, some of which invite “boo and hiss” audience participation. Each show also includes an old-time vaudeville revue full of song, dance and comedy.
In an effort to be taken seriously as a “legitimate theatre,” the Melodrama decides to produce the most famous musical of all time, The Phantom of the Opera. But things go awry when off-stage drama, bad luck, and a mysterious figure derail the production. With a colorful cast of characters, hysterical song parodies, and witty dialogue, this is one show your family won’t want to miss!
Shows: September 21 – November 12, 2017.
