Nikki Arias (Stepmother) is thrilled to return to Ray of Light after the raunchy epicness that was Jerry Springer the Opera. Recent works include Boxcar’s memorable productions of Hedwig & the Angry Inch (Hedwig #5) and Little Shop of Horrors (Ronette) and the San Francisco premiere of Xanadu: The Musical (Melpomene) at NCTC. Nikki has 14 Lamplighters productions under her operetta belt. Other favorites include Into the Woods (The Witch), Oliver! (Nancy), Hair (Dionne), West Side Story (Rosalia) and Rocky Horror Show (Columbia). ACLO’s production of Sweeney Todd earned her a local award for her take on the Beggar Woman.
