The Bay Area's acclaimed Lamplighters Music Theatre opens its 2006-07 season with Gilbert and Sullivan's supernatural musical thriller, The Witch's Curse: Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddygore. When inflicted with a family curse, Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd fakes his death and disguises himself as simple farmer Robin Oakapple, leaving his brother to carry the curse of committing one crime a day or die in agony. Before long, Robin falls in love with virtuous maiden Rose Maybud, but so does his brother. Add to the mix a bevy of professional bridesmaids and a gohostly chorus of ancestors and you have Gilbert and Sullivan's topsy-turvy recipe for fear and fun. Jane Hammett directs.
