Event Description: 

Lamplighters Music Theatre presents this comic masterpiece that melds the world of Jane Austen with a good old-fashioned English ghost story and a dash of Wuthering Heights romance.When inflicted with a family curse, Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd fakes his death and disguises himself as simple farmer Robin Oakapple, leaving his brother Sir Despard to carry the curse of being forced to commit one deadly crime a day or perish in indescribable agony. Before long, Robin falls in love with virtuous maiden Rose Maybud, but he finds himself in a love-triangle with his foster brother, Dick Dauntless. Add to the mix Mad Margaret who has been driven to insanity by the curse on her beloved Despard, a bevy of professional bridesmaids, and a ghostly chorus of ancestors, and you have a topsy-turvy recipe for frightful fun. Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut CreekFriday, February 12, 2016 • 8PMSaturday, February 13, 2016 • 2PM & 8PMSunday, February 14, 2016 • 2PMYerba Buena Center, San FranciscoFriday, February 19, 2016 • 8PMSaturday, February 20, 2016 • 2PM & 8PMSunday, February 21, 2016 • 2PMMountain View Center for the Performing ArtsSaturday, February 27, 2016 • 8PMSunday, February 28, 2016 • 2PM
