I love steampunk and the Lamplighters, so I decided to share this information.
Join The Lamplighters for their 46th annual Champagne Gala which will transport you around the world in a topsy-turvy Victorian steampunk reality game show with It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Amazing Race Around the World in 79½ Days, or, If It’s Tuesday, This Must Be Basingstoke. H.G. Wells has invented a machine that can bring literary characters to life – literally. Join some of your favorite authors, including Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Mary Shelley, Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, and, of course, W.S. Gilbert, as some of their most famous characters battle for the right to live in the real world. Along the way they’ll match their wits in competitions of dance, fashion, cooking and “love”, meeting an unexpected collection of people from the real world along the way.
As always, this much anticipated annual treat features original lyrics set to the music of Sir Arthur Sullivan, performed by many of your favorite Lamplighter singers. Come early to bid at the silent auction offering one-of-a-kind items, including a walk-on role in a future Lamplighters production. Join the cast after the show for a complimentary champagne reception.
