Each month, a group of us girls get together and go out for a Girl’s Night Out!  It is so much fun!  Originally our group was formed to play Bunco, but with everyone’s busy schedules, it became really difficult to do.  After a few months, we were all missing our monthly get-togethers and decided to start a regular Girl’s Night Out each month.  We would take turns hosting the Girl’s Night Out and could choose to have it at our home, go to a movie, go to a dinner….the possibilities were endless!

This month, we decided to go to The Great American Melodrama in Oceano, California.  If you’ve visited the Central Coast, you’ve probably heard of it.  It’s a pretty big deal here and if you’ve ever seen it, you would know why!  Since I hadn’t really been getting all dolled up for the past few Girl’s Nights Out, I figured I would make this a special exception (ha ha!)!  I even put hot curlers in my hair.  Ok, so I need to work on that a little bit, but I think the girls enjoyed the experience of watching me try to curl my hair.

My sister, my friend and I decided to carpool to The Great American Melodrama.  We met up with 5 other ladies at the theater and all went in together.  The tickets were ordered online and we were able to pick them up at the Will Call window.  As soon as we found our seats, we headed over to the Snack Bar.  The Snack Bar was actually manned by the performers themselves and closed about 10 minutes prior to showtime.  It would open up again for both Intermissions.  We ordered pretzels, popcorn, nachos and beer.  It was good!

The show was awesome!  There was acting, singing and dancing, as well as a vaudeville performance at the end.  Scary Poppins was so good!  Young Jack and Jill Peabody live in Victoria London with nutty inventor, widowed father.  When the children write to everyone’s favorite Super Nanny (and accidentally misspell it), they get “Scary Poppins” instead!  Scary Poppins is the bizarre twin sister of Mary Poppins who takes Jack and Jill on crazy adventures and finds a special place in their family and hearts.  It’s definitely a fun show that is great for the entire family!  

A big thanks to The Great American Melodrama for an awesome experience!
