Director Nicolas Aliaga frames his first production with Lamplighters through a more modern lens, emphasizing the late 19th Century concept of the “New Woman,” which embraced an entirely new feminist ideal.  Major-General Stanley’s wards are intrepid, curious, and hardy and the pirates themselves are gentlemen whose true crime is merely casting off society’s expectations; this will be a show about not doing what you are expected – or, indeed, duty-bound – to do![/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”More Details” shape=”square” color=”primary” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Flamplighters.org%2Fstaging-ll%2Fproductions-2018-2019%2Fpirates%2F|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1527277119208{padding-top: 50px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;background-color: #fff8db !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}”][vc_column width=”2/12″][vc_single_image image=”97″ img_size=”large”][vc_btn title=”Tickets” shape=”square” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Flamplighters.org%2Fstaging-ll%2Ftickets%2F|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”4/12″][vc_column_text]Herbst Theatre, San Francisco October 14, 2018  (Sunday) Silent Auction at 2pm, Performance at 3pm[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”6/12″][vc_column_text]CHAMPAGNE GALA Lamplighters Music Theatre has been writing unique and timely spoofs on current events, set to music (mostly Arthur Sullivan’s), since 1979!  Zany comments on current times and popular culture keep the audience laughing, and then the cast pours champagne for the audience in the beautiful Green Room afterwards.  Our largest fundraiser of the year includes live auction, silent auction, and raffle prizes.  Whether you fancy a week in Tuscany, handmade sweets and crafts by Lamplighter company members, or something in between, we have all sorts of treasures available for patrons of the arts to enjoy and simultaneously support our company! This year the Lamplighters Champagne Gala dives into the hustle & bustle of the newspaper biz.  Join us as we follow the adventures of Annie, a starry-eyed newbie, Meryl, a publisher who cannot make decisions, the conniving Paparazzo, and competing reporters Laine Louis and Kent Clark.  They will sing their way through hilarious double-entendres and misunderstandings as they try to save the SUN![/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”More Details” shape=”square” color=”primary” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Flamplighters.org%2Fstaging-ll%2Fproductions-2018-2019%2Fchampagne-gala%2F|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1527277129093{padding-top: 50px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;background-image: url(https://lamplighters.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/header-bubbles.jpg?id=368) !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}”][vc_column width=”2/12″][vc_single_image image=”96″ img_size=”large”][vc_btn title=”Tickets” shape=”square” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Flamplighters.org%2Fstaging-ll%2Ftickets%2F|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”4/12″][vc_column_text]Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco February 2, 2019 (Saturday 2pm and 8pm) February 3, 2019 (Sunday 2pm) Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek February 9, 2019 (Saturday 2pm and 8pm) February 10, 2019 (Sunday 2pm) Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts February 16, 2019 (Saturday 2pm and 8pm) February 17, 2019 (Sunday 2pm)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”6/12″][vc_column_text]A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC Lyrics and music by Stephen Sondheim, book by Hugh Wheeler A Little Night Music is the enchanting story of three couples and their romantic machinations, set during the magical and romantic midsummer of Sweden at the turn of the last century.  The story of the play unfolds through the eyes of the young and the memories of the old. The show employs an affectionate nod to the operetta style, blending witty and urbane dialogue with beguiling melodies. The proceedings are both manipulated and reflected on by a quintet of singers serving as a Greek chorus of sorts, sometimes participating in the action while offering commentary on the white lies, false witness and little treacheries of the lovers throughout the story. This exquisite blend of theatre and music styles provides an enchanting adventure as it explores the themes of lost loves, the yearning of the young, the sometimes foolishness of re-discovered middle-aged love and the gilded memories of the old.  Accomplished stage director Dennis Lickteig directs his first show with us since becoming Lamplighters’ Artistic Director.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”More Details” shape=”square” color=”primary” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Flamplighters.org%2Fstaging-ll%2Fproductions-2018-2019%2Flittle-night-music%2F|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1527277188496{padding-top: 50px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;background-color: #afe0e5 !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}”][vc_column width=”2/12″][vc_single_image image=”99″ img_size=”large”][vc_btn title=”Tickets” shape=”square” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Flamplighters.org%2Fstaging-ll%2Ftickets%2F|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”4/12″][vc_column_text]Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts March 21, 2019 (Thursday 7:30pm) Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek March 29, 2019 (Friday 8pm) Herbst Theater, San Francisco April 6, 2019 (Saturday 2pm) April 7, 2019 (Sunday 2pm)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”6/12″][vc_column_text]TRIAL BY JURY Gilbert and Sullivan and TRIAL BY JURY DUTY, a Lamplighters original Gala Spoof This one-act operetta was the first real success by the duo Gilbert and Sullivan.  With a cast comprised of a gentleman who has jilted his fiancée, the jilted bride-to-be and her bridesmaids, a pontificating foreman, a lecherous judge, and a chorus of jurors, Trial by Jury is a hilarious farce on English law and the human condition. We are pairing this one act with an updated Lamplighter Gala original, Trial by Jury Duty.  Come see what happens to all of the characters AFTER the end of the original show!  Happily ever after, or not so much??  One of the Lamplighters’ more popular and famous spoofs deserves to be seen with the original show.  When directed by Barbara Heroux, we know we have a winning combination![/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”More Details” shape=”square” color=”primary” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Flamplighters.org%2Fstaging-ll%2Fproductions-2018-2019%2Ftrial-by-jury%2F|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1554271318569{padding-top: 50px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;background-color: #fff8db !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}”][vc_column width=”2/12″][vc_single_image image=”1123″ img_size=”large”][vc_btn title=”Tickets” shape=”square” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ticketweb.com%2Fevent%2Ftoo-much-happiness-veterans-building-green-room-tickets%2F9283205|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”4/12″][vc_column_text]Veterans Building, San Francisco May 19, 2019 (Sunday 4pm)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”6/12″][vc_column_text]
