Rotary Club of Lincoln Lamplighter Tour

In 2003, the Centennial Year of Rotary International, the Rotary Club of Lincoln decided to celebrate this milestone by starting The Lamplighter Tour and becoming its founding sponsor.

The Lamplighter Tour is comprised of live theatre, with the aim of bringing local history alive, showcasing our local talent, but also the rich heritage and culture that is our foundation in the Town of Lincoln.

The excitement level is high the evening of our Premier Performance. This is our first chance to perform in front of an audience. The many hours of practice, rehearsing lines, learning the moves of the characters all come together for this first performance. When the “walking tour” begins over four magical days in November the efforts of over 100 volunteers culminates together, in what can be called the “ultimate team experience” to create what is known as the “Lamplighter Tour.”
