Another world premiere melodrama comes first to San Juan Capistrano from Camino Real Playhouse’s resident playwright Gary McCarver. Discover the mystery and mischief, the schemers and dreamers of a by-gone-era. Applaud the heroes and heroines and boo the villain in this mostly untold story of a part of San Juan Capistrano history you might have missed. Most people see Judge Egan’s Harmony House home in San Juan and don’t realize how much of a hero he was for this town and county. They say that the best parts of history are found between the lines … and in melodramas you will find those best parts hidden between jokes, puns, and authentic old-time music. Come join Camino Real Playhouse for lots of great old-time live piano music, over-the-top acting, and foam rocks to throw at the villain. Now in the Black Box for even more audience participation and so that everyone can have their foam rocks count. Just be sure not to throw rocks at Judge Egan, Madame Modjeska or the other heroes in this Old-West style musical melodrama. Melodrama has been an annual part of the city’s Fiesta Association celebration for 28 years.
