Miss Minnie’s Melodramodeon!
June 3 – 12, 2016
A Ross Collins Original

Poor Miss Minnie!  She has been forced to become the reluctant manager of her old father’s melodrama theater, ‘The Melodram-Odean’ since he has suddenly and mysteriously taken ill (He thinks he’s a chicken!) right before the judging of the grand melodrama competition!  Throw in a devious and insincere leading man, a deceitful developer and a large cast of misfits and ne’er-do-wells, and poor Minnie faces her biggest challenges ever.

Tickets are available on-line or by calling the Theater, 480-837-9661 ext. # 3
