Lamplighters Music Theatre TRIAL by JURY / TRIAL by JURY DUTY

The Bay Area's acclaimed Lamplighters Music Theatre will present Gilbert and Sullivan's original hit, TRIAL by JURY, with an original Lamplighter spoof, TRIAL by JURY DUTY, Mountain View (March 21), Walnut Creek (March 29) and San Francisco (April 6, 7).

Lamplighters pairs two hilarious one acts on this double bill. First, the original success by Gilbert and Sullivan, TRIAL by JURY. A cad who jilted his fiancee, the jilted bride-to-be, her bridesmaids, a pontificating foreman, a lecherous judge, and a chorus of jurors debate her claim for reparations in this hilarious farce on the human condition.

Paired with this gem is a Lamplighters original show, TRIAL by JURY DUTY. Take a bit of Jane Austen, some Jane Eyre, and a touch of REBECCA, and see what the characters do AFTER the end of the original show! Happily ever after, or not so much??? Directed by Barbara Heroux and conducted by Baker Peeples, we have a winning combination!

Lamplighters' great creativity and deep knowledge of both the Gilbert and Sullivan canon AND popular culture are on display every year in the Gala show of the Fall. TRIAL by JURY DUTY is an update of one of those Galas, bringing to a broader audience LMT's hilarious side; a new Sullivan operetta!

"Joyful song, satire, the spirit of Gilbert and Sullivan inspirited into a {new} vehicle", SF Splash Magazine.
