or, The Statutory Duel

Stage Director: Barbara Heroux • Music Director: Monroe Kanouse

We are proud to present the Lamplighters’ first ever staged production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s final collaboration. In his ultimate topsy-turvy farce, Gilbert presents a world turned upside-down when a theatrical troupe deposes the ruler of a tiny European Duchy and proceeds to squabble over which “role” in the government each leading actor should “play,” with uproarious consequences. Sullivan's varied and original score includes an astonishing variety of musical styles, from Viennese waltz to uproarious Parisian can-can dance numbers. This Jewel Box Production promises to be a must-see event for Gilbert & Sullivan aficionados and lovers of comic musical theater alike.
