The Lamplighters present the most uproarious fun(d)raiser in town! A full-length original satire set (mostly) to the music of Arthur Sullivan, a Lamplighters Gala is a guaranteed afternoon of hilarity. Last year’s — Upside-Downton Abbey, or, The Lass that Loved a Chauffeur — was one of our most successful ever, joining the ranks of award-winning Lamplighters Galas past. This year we’ll be spoofing, among several other things, those popular British BBC classics. This is definitely an event not to be missed! Our fundraising Gala performance also includes raffle, silent auction, and post-performance champagne reception with the cast.

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.
