The mission of Lamplighters Music Theatre is to be the premier producer of the works of Gilbert & Sullivan and other works of comparable wit, literacy, and musical merit. We seek to present relevant and culturally diverse productions that delight and enrich audiences, performers, and community members.
Critically acclaimed artistic successes for the Lamplighters include honors for Best Production and Best Director at the International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival in Buxton, England, and local awards in nearly every performance, direction, and design category.
Superbly prepared and refined, the Lamplighters Orchestra continues to beguile, especially when Baker Peeples is in the pit… the instrumentalists surpass themselves.
