Santa Fe Playhouse has been skewering and roasting the City Different for 101 years. Politicians, public-school policy, police, and the press are all fair game, as are cherished local traditions. Boos, jeers, hisses, sighs and cheers from the participating audience add to this unique annual play.
Now in its 101st year, the Fiesta Melodrama is Santa Fe’s oldest theatrical tradition, written in-house by bawdy and bold anonymous Santa Feans. The Melodrama is our community’s farcical Year in Review, skewering politicians, public-school policy, police, the press, and everything else that makes Santa Fe so “different.” Directed by 10-year Melodrama veteran Felix Cordova.
