2019 Fiesta Melodrama
by a team of courageously anonymous local heros
August 22 – September 15
(No show on Friday, August 30)
The 2nd annual 99th anniversary of a mysteriously old Santa Fe tradition!
If that sentence confuses you, you’re not alone! Even if we are not sure exactly how long we have been skewering local politicians and issues in the Santa Fe Fiesta Melodrama, we do know how to get it done. Written in the style of an “Old West” melodrama, every year the Melodrama reminds you of all the stupid things that happened in Santa Fe over the last 12 months and gives you a chance to laugh your frustrations away.
So, what’s in store for 2019? Well, let’s Follow the Plothole-Filled Road (or Little Outhouse on the Prairie or A Gaggle aka Golden MacGuffins Gets Gotten or Location, Location, Location: The Other L.A Story or A Wack, A Wizard, and A Witch That Gets Whacked).
After being carried to a strange and confusing part of Santa Fe by a magical blue (corn) wave, Jamie Dorothy must find her way back to the Santa Fe she knows and loves by following the Plothole-Filled Road. Will the Wizard of Santa Fe be able to help her and her friends restore order and find an affordable place to rent, or will a mysterious stranger win the day and make all of Santa Fe into a radioactive AirBnB? These answers and more at the 2019 Fiesta Melodrama!
This show is always immensely popular, so don’t forget to buy your tickets early!
