WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Lamplighters spoof the award-winning British television series Downton Abbey in our much-anticipated Annual Gala - the funniest fun(d)raiser in town! A full-length original parody, with topical satire set mostly to the music of Sir Arthur Sullivan - every Lamplighters Gala is a unique event, and a guaranteed afternoon of hilarity. Upside-Downton Abbey, or, The Lass that Loved a Chauffeur features familiar characters and plot themes from the TV series but with a whole host of comic twists. Several past Galas have won best Original Show awards from the Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle. Silent Auction (San Francisco only), raffle, and post-performance champagne reception for audience and performers make this an experience not to be missed!
Costumes are encouraged! The Assistance League Costume Bank have pledged to donate $5 to the Lamplighters for every costume rental and/or retail purchase of $50 or more associated with the Gala: losaltos-assistanceleague.org.
