Join us for the fun and laughter of a melodrama. Ooh & aah the heroine. Boo & throw popcorn at the villain. Cheer for the hero. MPAC’s Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Pipe Organ provides spirited accompaniment to family-friendly fun for all ages.

Lizzie Holiday's hotel is not doing well an she is nearly broke. She wants to retire but not until her daughter Belle is married. Enter Gerald Snively, our villain, who overhears Lawyer Otis Pitts telling Lizzie some news about her husband's will. Before he can reveal to her that she's actually a wealthy woman, he has a heart attack and dies. Snively finds out and decides to woo Belle to get his hands on the money. Belle, however, is in love with Eddie Allswell, and unsuccessful oil man, who in turn is seduced by Snively's sexy sidekick, leaving Belle stunned and agreeing to marry Snively. Of course, "All's Well with Oil Wells" and ends with an (almost) wedding, a fight, and a happily ever after.
