INTERACTIVE ASSEMBLY

Are you looking for an engaging, convenient, affordable way to bring the performing arts into your school for a day? Our Gilbert & Sullivan H.M.S. Pinafore Interactive Assembly is the choice for you!

Our professional performing artists and arts educators are passionate about igniting the spark of creativity in young people… and Gilbert & Sullivan is the perfect choice for students of all ages, elementary through high school.

H.M.S. Pinafore is the story of a lowly sailor’s love for his Captain’s daughter, and their brave defiance of her arranged marriage to a buffoonish Admiral. This family-friendly favorite is one of the most treasured comic operas of all time.

STUDENTS WILL EXPERIENCE
Lamplighters Music Theatre will bring three costumed singers and a piano accompanist to your school to perform a specially designed 45-minute interactive assembly introducing Gilbert & Sullivan, through this enduring classic. We provide sheet music for the choral selections in advance, along with a music learning CD.

Pre-selected student volunteers join the crew of sailors onstage, and assist our professional performing artists in comparing a “Gilbert & Sullivan patter song” to contemporary rap songs.

Your chorus and the onstage volunteers will rehearse with the artists on assembly day. Schools can expand the creative experience by adding an optional student chorus of any size.

Our teaching artists and performers also interact with students in a short question & answer session after the performance.

Our goal in enabling students to experience a live musical performance goes beyond expanding their comprehension skills. This program will draw them into a rich, structured conversation about the role that speaking and listening play in acquiring and sharing knowledge.

KEEPING IT AFFORDABLE
The Lamplighters are committed to helping young people to explore the arts so we try our best to make our education programs affordable and easy to implement.

The Lamplighters require a tuned piano in good working order. Performance area must be cleared and available 75 minutes prior to presentation.

Your cost is $295 for one performance or $495 for two performances on the same day, scheduled back to back, with a maximum audience of 300 per performance.

Our Lamplighters’ Interactive Assembly Programs are subsidized by the generosity of our donors. Your school may qualify for additional scholarship assistance. Please ask!

MINI-RESIDENCIES

Do you want an impactful way to engage your students more deeply with the performing arts?

Lamplighters’ Mini-Residencies offer students the chance to learn and play alongside professional performers. Students will learn how a musical is put together from auditions and rehearsals to costumes and performances.

Schools can choose from either The Pirates of Penzance or H.M.S. Pinafore. These stories and music are engaging and accessible for all students—even those who have yet to discover that they love to perform.

We will bring a stage director and a music director to your school to help you present a condensed version of one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most beloved comic operas. Mini-residencies begin with planning support and in-class materials. The school is then responsible for holding auditions, casting the operetta, and rehearsing.

We provide scripts, sheet music, a music learning CD, and other tools for success. Our stage and music directors return for coaching visits at least twice during your rehearsals to help your young performers shine. Each mini-residency culminates with a final dress rehearsal with the directors and Lamplighters performers, followed by one or two performances for your school. We even bring costumes for your students!

These mini-residencies each feature three adult Lamplighters performers, and require a cast of ten onstage student performers, three student narrators, and your offstage chorus.

Your cost is $595 for one performance or $795 for two performances on the same day, scheduled back to back, with a maximum audience of 300 per performance.

Our Lamplighters’ Mini-Residency Programs are subsidized by the generosity of our donors. Your school may qualify for additional scholarship assistance. Please ask!
