The mission of Lamplighters Music Theatre is to be the premier producer of the art of Gilbert & Sullivan, as well as other compositions of comparable wit, eloquence, and musicality.


We strive for excellence in all elements of the production process. 

Diversity and Cultural Relevance 

We keep our art engaging and relevant to current times, and demonstrate cultural relevance and diversity through thoughtful treatments of classics and new works.


We are committed to active engagement with our patrons, donors, performers and community.

Financial Integrity

We make responsible use of our funds to support our mission with transparency and integrity.  

Growth and Support 

We are passionate about our craft, and maintain a stimulating atmosphere of growth and support for our performers, production teams, and administrative staff. 

What happened to George Floyd has happened too many times.

LMT affirms the following:

  1. We believe #BlackLivesMatter
  2. We know that people of color have been under-represented on our stage
  3. As artists we have the unique ability to lead civil discourse through our programming, our narrative, our actions

 We have heard from POC and knowledgeable allies, and Lamplighters commits to proactively working together through words and actions to fight against racism. Our first step is forming an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion team to focus on how our company can identify and combat racism from within.

Lamplighters Music Theatre stands in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community

Lamplighters Music Theatre stands in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community against acts of hate and violence. We recognize the race-motivated acts of violence against members of this community. We wish to create space for the Asian American and Pacific Islander community to express their frustration and grief about the continued experiences of racial and intersectional oppression.

We acknowledge the work yet to be done in our own allyship with Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. We specifically also acknowledge the prior harm to the Asian American and Pacific Islander community with standard works in the Gilbert and Sullivan canon. We are actively working to address these issues to ensure that there is no racial prejudice in any of our creative productions. We humbly invite conversations and suggestions at diversity@lamplighters.org for ways we can help at this time.
