In the Wings

This summer we will again do our best  to help battle the "August doldrums" by presenting an eighth play this season, most likely over the final two weekends in August.

Please continue to check back on our website page, as well as the Lamp-Lite Facebook page, for more information on the August play and performance dates.



Lamp-Lite Theatre is a non-profit community playhouse that relies entirely on volunteers, especially in these categories:

  • Front of House
  • Backstage
  • Performers

If you are interested in volunteering, please email us at

Upcoming Performance

Upcoming Auditions in May

The Lamp-Lite Players will be holding two separate auditions in May: open auditions for adults for the upcoming 2018-19 season (and beyond) and the other for our upcoming summer musical, Seussical JR.

An open audition for adults will be held on THURSDAY, MAY 24, at 7pm at the Lamp-Lite Theatre. Sarah McMullan and Pat Harris will be holding auditions and are looking for adult singers and actors of all ages, especially younger performers still in their 20s and 30s. You may bring something to read, or else a monologue will be provided for you. Also, feel free to sing.

AUDITIONS for the summer musical, Seussical JR, will be held on TUESDAY, MAY 29, at 6:30pm at Lamp-Lite Theatre. Everyone should be prepared to sing a song (bring sheet music for pianist, if needed). We need CHILDREN and ADULTS.

2017–2018 Season

Season Tickets for the 2017–18 Lamp-Lite season are still on sale and are valid for performances through Sept. 1, 2018.


Seussical JR

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Our summer musicals typically offer a number of opportunities for children to experience the excitement of performing on stage in front of a live audience. Auditions will be on Tuesday, May 29, at 6:30pm at Lamp-Lite. Keep checking our website and the Lamp-Lite Facebook page for more details. Rehearsals will begin on Monday,  June 11.
