We are always proud of the fact that Lamplighters form a bridge between academia and the fully professional opera and theatre world. We do this in the progression of Singers, Stage Directors, Conductors, and Costumers from our stages to the world. A most recent example of this fine tradition is Hannah Velichko! She came up the ranks as a student intern then professional stitcher with us, and she graduated to wardrobe crew with HAMILTON when it was in SF two years ago. This January, Hannah was asked to work wardrobe for the stellar production of HAMILTON in Puerto Rico! And, she asked one of her mentors, Judy Jackson to join, along with George Ashworth. Nicolas Aliaga Garcia attended as the guest of another staffer, so….the Lamplighters did represent at HAMILTON in Puerto Rico!
