Back by popular demand (no, really, check our email inboxes), America’s favorite axe-wielding double-murderess comes to the Ray of Light stage for this one-night concert to kick off our twentieth season. LIZZIE imagines the story behind the legend Lizzie Borden — the primary suspect for her father and stepmother’s brutal murder in 1892 — with a cast of four powerhouse women. This show melds the infamous 19th century true-crime story with a driving rock score.
Heathers: The Musical • October 30 – November 21, 2020 @ Z Space, San Francisco
Book, music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy, Direction and choreography by Alex Rodriguez, Music direction by Ben Prince
A smash hit from Off-Broadway to the West End and every community theatre in-between, Heathers: The Musical is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, the brainy and beautiful misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: the Heathers. Watch as Veronica falls for the dangerously sexy new kid, J.D., and the fallout as she attempts to climb to the top of the high school food chain. Heathers is a perfect show for 1980’s movie buffs and musical theatre fans alike.
20th Anniversary Gala Concert • Spring 2021
Join company staff, alumni and some of the Bay Area’s most talented performers for a gala event that celebrates the Blood. Sweat. Musicals. that Ray of Light Theatre has brought to San Francisco for the past twenty years. Featuring performances by members of the all-female cast of 2018’s smash hit Jesus Christ Superstar, proceeds from this special event will directly support Ray of Light’s future seasons.
Music by Michael Gore, Lyrics by Dean Pitchford, Book by Lawrence D. Cohen
Based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel and brought to Broadway in 1988, CARRIE the Musical transports audiences to the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, where we meet Carrie White, a misfit bullied by the popular crowd at school, yet virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s at the mercy of her loving yet cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power. And if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it.
