Eight decades is a long time for any theatrical organization, but even after that many years, the Lamplighters Community Theatre continues to be a beloved venue for entertainment in La Mesa.
In June, several festivities are taking place in honor of the longstanding theater company. On June 11, the 80th Anniversary Gala is scheduled to take place at the La Mesa Women’s Club, organized by volunteers Barbara Eisele and Pamela Stompoly-Ericson. Hors d’oeuvres, refreshments and a silent auction will be held. And as a special honor to the Lamplighters Theatre’s late longtime member, theater treasurer, former house manager and producer Judy Hughes, “Judy’s Signature Punch” will be served.
