Serving the La Mesa and surrounding communities, Lamplighters produces six season productions a year. We also support special events and one act shows between the regular season productions. Season productions are performed on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm and on Sunday afternoons at 2pm.
Our goals are to provide a quality theater experience for our community, to provide a training facility for artistic, technical and administration aspects of theater and to have fun while we do it.
