Be The "Very Model of a Modern Major-General"

Musical theater, military costumes and cocktails . . . how appropriate!

The folks at the Lincoln Theater (100 California Drive on the grounds of the Veterans Home of California in Yountville) have reached out to the troops with the following deal:

  • Troops from the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar discounted tickets tickets to the Lamplighters Music Theatre's production of The Pirates of Penzance at 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 7.  Just buy your tickets at and select the "Discount" ticket option after you've chosen your seats.  You'll receive a $10 discount per ticket!
  • There will be a costume contest - just come appropriately dressed as a pirate or wench for a chance to win two tickets to see Charo (Cuchi, Cuchi!)
  • There will be a no-host bar and they'll be reserving a special area on the mezzanine for us!
Following the performance, let's all head to Panchas!

Pirates of Penzance is Gilbert and Sullivan at its best. One of the most popular operas ever written, this swashbuckling classic tells the tale of the pirate apprentice Frederic, who has a few surprises in store as he turns 21!  It features tender-hearted pirates, bumbling policemen, an eccentric Major General and beautiful young maidens.

For a taste, view this video including George Rose, Kevin Kline, Rex Smith and Linda Ronstadt:
