August 25, 2022 - September 18, 2022

The Fiesta Melodrama, always gazing reverently at its own navel, pays homage to its history, its place in Santa Fe’s “tri-culture,” and at the humor the rabble-rousing casts and crews have used over the decades to deal with local goings-on.

Santa Fe Playhouse has been skewering and roasting the City Different for 100 years. Politicians, public-school policy, police, and the press are all fair game, as are cherished local traditions. Our centennial offering will be extra-special, complete with keepsakes and memorabilia.


Showtimes: 7:30 p.m. Thursdays – Saturdays and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Santa Fe Playhouse Box Office opens one hour before showtime. Concessions are available in the lobby. For the safety of our performers, all patrons are required to wear masks and show proof of COVID vaccination. The Melodrama is at the Playhouse through September 4, reflected on the calendar below.
