CATS Playhouse opens melodrama

The C.A.T.S. Playhouse, 2257 34th Street, opens an original melodrama called "Goodnight, Sweetheart or The Saga of the Bar-B Dahl Ghosts," co-written and directed by Mickie Klafka. 

Melodramas are meant to be outlandish, over-the-top comedies covered in a thick layer of cheese with character names like Sully Muzak, Boom Boom Stiletto, and Buck Stopsere (say it out loud to get it). And audiences are encouraged to heckle.

Watch the video for the preview.

"Goodnight, Sweetheart or The Saga of the Bar-B Dahl Ghosts"
7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday 
CATS Playhouse
